Coffining of Silent Mentor @ 20/5/2022

When I first signed up for the Silent Mentor Workshop, I only thought of how this could be a great opportunity to improve my practical skills. I am, after all, an “e-MBBS” candidate,
having undergone 2 years of my medical degree during the COVID-19 pandemic. My experience, however, showed that I learned and got a lot more than what I bargained for.
not saying a word, my Silent Mentors taught me multitudes. Not only was I able to learn new things from them, but I was also given the opportunity to apply everything I had learned, to make mistakes, and to gain indispensable lifetime experience. I was able
to practise my suturing techniques on actual human flesh and intubate a human body. Although I will get more learning opportunities in the future, this initial learning is essential to minimize mistakes when the stakes are high.
My Silent Mentors are the teachers that I will always keep in mind when I help my own patients in the future. It was because of their sacrifice that I was able to improve as a doctor, as well as a person. I am incredibly
grateful to be a part of this program.

To call it simply a workshop, would be such an understatement. This has been a journey for me. From getting to know
the family of my mentor, up till his departure, it has felt as if I have known Mr Cheah for such a long time. Despite not uttering a single word to me, the lessons I have learned from my Silent Mentor have been etched into my heart. I am forever grateful to
his selflessness for donating his body for the education of medical professionals. I will ensure that what knowledge my mentor has passed on to me, I will pass on to the future generations. This journey shall be one I will forever cherish in my heart. Thank
you, Silent Mentor!
