COP Maame Tiwaa's Son Sweeps 15 Of 21 UCC Medical School Awards

A graduating medical student of the University of Cape Coast, Medical School, Edward Akosah Danso wowed the congregation when he bagged 15 of the 21 awards at stake.

Danso, the first son of the Commissioner of Police (COP), Maame Yaa Tiwaa Addo-Danquah was the highest awardee of the four-session graduation ceremonies held on Thursday and Friday.

The university graduated more than 7300 students at four sessions of graduation ceremonies on Thursday and Friday.

Danso was named best student in Anatomy, Best Graduating clinical student, Best Graduating male student, best graduating student psychological medicine and mental health, Best overall student in surgery, and Best student in psychiatry.

Other awards included best Obstetrics and Gynecology student, Best Community Medicine student, Best physiology student, Best student in Psychological medicine and Mental health.

In an interview with Graphic Online, Danso attributed the feat to hardwork and an enabling environment his family provided for him to thrive.

"It was a great privilege for me to have had support from my family to thrive and come out successfully."

"It was overwhelming and I was extremely happy to make my mother and family members proud and also inspire others who may consider me worthy of looking up to me."

He stressed he had put in extra hours of effort to achieve such a feat, and that he would advise students to avoid things that did not have any bearing on their academic careers.
