Pyongyang, November 23 (KCNA) -- General Secretary Kim Jong Il gave field guidance to Pyongyang Medical College of Kim Il Sung University.
He looked round the room dedicated to the history of the college.
The college is a meritorious one with a long history. It was visited by President Kim Il Sung and Kim Jong Suk, anti-Japanese war heroine, on several occasions.
Kim Jong Il recalled with deep emotion the undying leadership feats of the President recorded in every page of the shining history of the college.
The college which was established and made progress on the personal initiative of the President and under his meticulous guidance has grown to be a reliable center for training health personnel of the country, he said, adding that the loving care shown by the President for promoting people's health will always be remembered by them.
Looking round educational and scientific achievements displayed at the college, he acquainted himself in detail with the successes made in the educational development and medical science researches and expressed great satisfaction over the fact that the teachers and students have done a lot of work in the past.
Making the rounds of various practice rooms of the college, he learned about the education there and praised the college for having successfully built practice centers so that lectures might be closely combined with practice to teach students workable knowledge.
After going round the college, he set forth highly important tasks which would serve as guidelines for the college's education and scientific researches.
The WPK is greatly satisfied with the fact that over the past more than six decades since its founding the college has successfully carried out its mission and duty, making a great contribution to developing the nation's public health, he said.
All the graduates from the college including dozens of labor heroes and heroines are genuine protectors of human lives as they have devoted themselves to the people's lives and the promotion of their health with ardent love for them, he said, adding that the noble self-sacrificing spirit displayed by them serves as a tradition of praiseworthy noble virtues in the era of the Workers' Party.
He called upon the college to steadily improve and strengthen the educational work as required by the developing reality, always bearing in mind the WPK's intention to bring the nation's overall medical science and technology to the world's level in the shortest possible period and thus to train more talented medical personnel.
If the college is to train more medical workers high in medical technology in a brief span of time it is necessary to let students systematically acquire profound medical theories and, at the same time, dynamically conduct the work for studying and introducing advanced medical science and technology, he pointed out.
In order to bring about a fresh turn in the training of technical personnel it is necessary to provide ample conditions for education and scientific researches and pay deep attention to the living of the teachers and students, he noted, showing great loving care and benevolence for them.
