MCU Medicine’s board performance tops 93%
In recent years, the MCU-FDTMF College of Medicine graduates continuously surpass its past board performances. The College of Medicine garnered 93.33%, for the first takers, in the August 2012 Physicians Licensure Examination. This passing rate topped the national passing average of 78.8%.
The increasing passing rate of the College is a concrete evidence that the college is performing well. The intensive review of the senior interns during their hospital internship was a great help for the board exam takers.
During the examination proper, Dr. Elvira M. Abreu, Dean of College of Medicine, together with Doctors Merlina Cabrera and Julieta Dizon went to the testing centers to give moral support.
The Administration officials led by Dr. Aristotle T. Malabanan, President, Dr. Lutgarda C. Quito, Executive Vice President, Mrs. Purificacion M. Echiverri, Administrator, Dr. Abreu, faculty members and staff of different departments celebrated the success of the new MCU-FDTMF doctors during a testimonial luncheon last September 10, 2012 at Anatomy Building Room 202.
“Most of them were in tears as they went back to give thanks to the faculty, administration, and the Foundation for the milestone in their lives. They were all like walking on cloud nine,” Dr. Abreu said as she described the new MCU physicians.
