Awarding of Outstanding Students AY 2017-2018

The Department of Neurosciences, under the University of the Philippines College of Medicine, is actively involved in the medical students' exposure to neuroscience. From neuroanatomy at learning unit 3, to pathological conditions starting learning unit 4, until their clinical rotations up to their internship year, the departments' faculty and staff usher these students as they navigate the neurons and tracts and as they manage headaches and strokes (and so much more).

Last year, we also had the opportunity to include post-graduate interns into the fold, as we introduced the Adult Neurology rotation into their curriculum. And as the department has received awards for being one of the Outstanding Clinical Departments (along with Medicine, Orthopedics, Pediatrics, and Surgery), we are also happy to commend the students for their excellent performance during the past school year.

The awardees (back, L-R): Maria Lourdes S. Mahusay for LU4, Beatrice Estrada for LU7 Neurology, Hanna Tan, Carla Buenaflor, Daniel Tan, Angelene Eugenio, Miguel Fernando, Ysabel Ortiz, Samantha Fusingan, Samuel Ong, Maxine Ty for LU6, and Juri Faulan for LU3; with (seated, L-R): Dr. Jose Danilo Diestro, Dr. Jose Leonard Pascual, Dr. Paul Matthew Pasco, Dr. Godfrey Robeniol and Dr. Ma. Cristina San Jose from the Department of Neurosciences

On November 7, 2018, top ranking students from LU3, LU4, LU6 and LU7 were recognized for their academic excellence. Dr Paul Matthew Pasco, officer-in-charge of the department, welcomed the students and thanked them for also inspiring the faculty and their passion for teaching.

Dr. Hanna Clementine Q. Tan, the most outstanding clerk in the Neurosciences, delivered a response on behalf of the awardees. She emphasized that at early in their budding medical careers, they have to set the stage for whichever path they will eventually take.

Dr. Godfrey Robeniol, who was standing in for Dr. Carissa Dioquino-Maligaso as the Assistant Chair for the Undergraduate Program, ended the program by inviting these outstanding students - should they consider it - to be future members of the department. He also congratulated them as surely, with their talents, they will go places.

Congratulations, dear students!
