MBChB student graduates summa cum laude

At the top of his class, Ahmed Sameer Ikram will graduate with an MBChB summa cum laude from the University of KwaZulu-Natal (UKZN) today.

Ikram, who was also a recipient of the prestigious Y.K. Seedat prize, awarded to exceptional students, says this achievement means a lot to him and is a testament to his hard work over the years.

"My advice to other students is to savour the opportunity and always strive for perfection, actualise the Hippocratic Oath and help others whenever you have the opportunity."

Ikram is currently serving his internship at King Edward VIII Hospital.

For media interviews, Ikram can be contacted on 061 411 6697 / 084 699 5545.

The UKZN virtual graduation ceremony will be broadcast on SABC 3 (DSTV Channel 193) today at 1:30pm. Graduands will join via the link:

UKZN has also partnered with Ukhozi FM on a special graduation programme, which will be broadcast between 12pm and 3pm today.
