407

DAVAO CITY—The medical students of JMCFI College of Medicine will soon be deployed to renowned institutions, namely the Southern Philippines Medical Center in Davao City and Davao Regional Medical Center in Brgy. Apokon, Tagum City, Davao del Norte, while some will participate in community immersion initiatives in Barangay Salumay, Marilog District.

This historic send-off ceremony conducted by JMCFI College of Medicine marks a significant milestone for both the College and the fifty medical clerks. As they embark on their practical training, they are entrusted with the responsibility of becoming skilled and compassionate physicians, driven by a deep commitment to service and nation-building.

The medical clerkship, known as a clinical clerkship or clinical rotation, stands as a vital pillar in the education of future doctors. Typically undertaken during the advanced stages of medical school, this hands-on experience equips students with the necessary skills across various medical specialties.

Throughout the clerkship, students will work alongside licensed physicians, including attending physicians, residents, and fellows, actively participating in patient care under their expert guidance. This immersive learning experience enables students to translate their theoretical knowledge into practical application, fostering their professional growth and instilling a profound sense of compassion.

Addressing the medical clerks, Dr. Nestor A. Arce, the Dean of the College of Medicine, imparted his heartfelt advice. He emphasized the significance of their role as physicians with compassionate hearts, dedicated to serving their fellowmen and contributing to the betterment of our nation.

Dr. Arce encouraged the clerks to uphold the institution’s vision and mission, rooted in values of integrity, respect, and justice. He reassured them that comprehensive knowledge is not expected from the onset and emphasized the supportive nature of their mentors and colleagues. The Dean also urged the clerks to voice any concerns about patients or themselves and seize every opportunity as a learning experience, as the field of medicine is constantly evolving, offering endless possibilities for growth.

The JMCFI College of Medicine stands as one of the flagship programs envisioned by Pastor Apollo C. Quiboloy in his endearing commitment to improving the health of the impoverished and marginalized sectors of society. This inaugural send-off ceremony, with fifty medical clerks, marks the realization of his dream that accessible healthcare services will one day be within reach for his fellow countrymen.
