No.1 - Entertainment

Editors’ Words

As students of the medical faculty, we are all in pursuit of the skills and knowledge that will prepare us for a lifetime of serving and providing medical care. First, we must learn to be able to identify and understand the malfunctioning aspects of the human body, which must be done through observation and communication. Then, we do everything that we can to improve patients’ lives, through providing the most suitable treatments and management plans.


This year, Caduceus’ editorial board will be adopting the same doctrine when it comes to the operation and development of our 96-year-old publishing society. Having collected an array of opinions (from you and from respectable members of the community) and conducted a thorough analysis of the situation at hand, we have decided to pursue new ventures while preserving the traditional qualities that laid the strong foundation for the success of Caduceus today. Thus, we would like to introduce our new plan for 2018.


Our framework can be encompassed by a Latin hendiatris ‘Citius, Altius, Fortius’, the century old Olympic motto that translates to ‘Faster, Higher, Stronger’.


Faster, will the material be delivered into readers’ hands.

As most of us have realised, ‘time and tide wait for no man’, and thus by publishing more frequently, we provide you with the ticket to catch up with the times.


Higher, will the chances be, for readers to benefit from our publications.

With a lighter volume, our leaflets are carefully designed so that from the moment it reaches you, you are guaranteed to finish reading all 8 or 12 pages before the lecture starts. (Sorry, no more excuses.)


Stronger, will we deliver our messages, to attract further attention, from more readers.

With more flexibility to our publications, we offer the element of surprise in every volume. Thus, with stronger recognition within the medical faculty, we aim for more contributions and to further raise our standards.


With that said, we are proud to present our first publication of the year—Cadulet no.1.

We would like to congratulate everyone for completing semester one, be it with flying colours or with all that you have suffered, by offering a refreshing cocktail of entertainment topics. So ladies and gentlemen, do spare us a moment, so we can treat you to a movie to munch on, music worth musing over and of course, how can you leave without plenty of food for thought?




We inspire our readers to think and our readers inspire us to think.
