He further said, “You [graduates] have taken an oath to dedicate yourselves to the service of the society. You should treat human life with utmost care and should have adequete knowledge of what you are doing. Many students neglect medical jurisprudence during their studies, but it is an important part of your profession. You need to act according to the rules that have been laid, and be careful not to make mistakes. Your duty has now begun, you are now public servants to serve the society.”

Sadnanda Shetty in his presidential address urged the graduates to discharge their duties in the right way, strictly follow the ethics of their profession and give to society rather than expecting something from it.
