There are many was to spread the knowledge
You can be either a candle or a mirror
I want to be a candle
Where I cannot be a candle, at least I want to be a mirror
I have a passion to teach.
The International Council of Ophthalmology (ICO) conducts Basic Sciences and Clinical Science Assessment once a year. From its inception, I have been a coordinator of the exam in Kota Kinabalu, Sabah, Malaysia.
I volunteered to coached and candidates in Kota Kinabalu, Sabah, Malaysia for the Basic Sciences and Optics & Refraction Assessment.
My students had very remarkable good success rate in the Assessment and they went on to pass the Final Ophthalmology Examination of the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh.
In 1992, the Muthusamy Medal for the Best Candidate in the Final Ophthalmology Exam was established in the Royal College of Surgeon of Edinburgh. Most of you would be familiar with Parsons’ Diseases of the Eye and Clinical Ophthalmology by Kanski. Among other recipients, the co-editors of these books respectively are Drs Radhika Tandon and Brad Bowling.

because some knowledgeable person thought they can
