UPCM Class 1983

Most Distinguished Class of the Year Award

Class 1983 is celebrating its Ruby Jubilee in 2023. The class has many achievements in

various categories in the past 40 years. Many have served in government positions (such as

Secretary/Undersecretary of Health, and advisers in agencies), in academe (Vice Dean and

Chairs in UPCM and in other medical schools), and as administrators (in UP as EVP, Vice

Chancellors, directors and other positions). The members have a respectable publication history

with over XXX books and chapters, XXX journal article publications, and numerous scientific

paper presentations, and as journal editors. Many have also received prestigious awards for

their life work from national bodies (including the Ramon Magsaysay Award, Metrobank

Outstanding Teacher, TOYM, TOWNS, Outstanding physicians, and others) and from the

university and the professional societies (including UP, alumni associations, UPMASA and

others). Many have also served as leaders, presidents, and head of professional organizations

both locally and internationally. These achievements are a reflection of the dedication of the

class members to serve the profession, the country and the institutions. We are proud to have

reached this point in large part due to the strong foundation provided by our UP college of

medicine education.
