Message from the President
As a surgeon you need to have a controlled arrogance. If it's uncontrolled, you can cause harm to patients, but you have to be pretty arrogant to open a person's chest, take out their heart and believe you can fix it. Then, when you succeed and the patient survives, you pray, because it's only by the grace of God that you get there.
Prof. Godfrey Ignatius Muguti MS(Syd) FCS(ECSA) FRCS(Edin) Hon.FRCS(Eng)
