The province gained another accomplishment as thirteen scholars supported by the Palawan Provincial Government passed the October Physician Licensure Examination.
These scholars, belonging to the 11th batch of the SPS Alay sa Kabataan-Programang Pang-Edukasyon para sa Palaweño (PPP) under the Palawan Provincial Government, have demonstrated exceptional dedication to their pursuit of medicine and related fields.
Among the newly licensed doctors are individuals such as Dr. Patrick Franco V. Payuyo from Aborlan, Dr. Christine Joy F. Gammad, Dr. Gisele Alyssa D. Portales, and Dr. Jarney Dyenn C. Bito-onon from Narra, Dr. Grace T. Villanueva from Quezon, Dr. Karl Wesley E. Dillozon from Bataraza, Dr. Joshua Benjamin R. Grapa and Dr. Carla Elize G. Derain from Brooke’s Point, and Dr. Nicole Anne B. Palay and Dr. Christine P. Salazar from Cuyo. Additionally, Dr. Christian M. Dela Torre represents Magsaysay, while Dr. Justine Keith E. Abuel and Dr. Jansen O. Saldajeno hail from Puerto Princesa.
At present, a total of seventy-five (75) medical scholars from the Palawan Provincial Government have triumphantly passed the examination, transitioning into committed healthcare professionals.
Many are actively contributing to diverse hospitals overseen by the Provincial Government across Palawan municipalities, fulfilling their commitment to provide service for a duration equivalent to their scholarship period.
Governor V. Dennis M. Socrates expresses confidence that this scholarship program will not only strengthen the education sector but will also elevate healthcare services in the province.
