Wow! is the word to describe the epic feat of a young doctor who graduated with 12 awards from the Kwame Nkurumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST).
Dr. Fathia Ayodele Kareem is the latest doctor who left mouths agape at the 23rd Oath Swearing and Induction Ceremony, of KNUST’s School of Medical Sciences (SMS), as she raked 12 astonishing awards out of the available 15 awards.
The event which was held at the auditorium of the Great Hall, was graced by many professional doctors who graduated from the KNUST School of Medical Sciences, and the College of Health Science (CHS).
It happened that the school had prepared a total of 15 awards, to give out to students who distinguished themselves during their period of study.
But having met the criteria for almost all the awards, the outstanding KNUST medical graduate who is an alumnus of the Wesley Girls High School, claimed 12 of them, breaking the initial record of 8 out of 15.
In 2015, 24-year-old Charles Djugbah broke the then 40-year old record, by taking home 8 out of the 15 available awards, at the end of his seven-year- course at the university.
Ghanaians have been singing praises of the young doctor whose latest achievement has left the public in awe. It was a happy moment for family and friends when she took several turns to receive the awards after being sworn in as a medical doctor from the School of Medical Sciences, KNUST.
The 25-year-old who spoke to the media after the event, said she was really humbled by the awards, adding that she worked very hard during her school days. With a very high record set for her successors, Dr Fathia has also attained a remarkable achievement worthy of emulation.
