TRUE to its vision of being committed to quality service, skills and training, the University of Cebu Medical Center - Department of Anesthesiology held its first graduation rites for the Residency Training Program on Dec.18, 2020, at the University of Cebu School of Medicine Amphitheater.

Three successful graduates led the group of outstanding residents, namely, Dr. Franz Aaron B. Jueco, Dr. Jan Darwin D. Marquez, (who garnered the 96th and 94th percentile rank in this year's Residency-in-Training Examination [Rite], respectively), and Dr. Ronald Vincent L. Letaba. The three residents are pioneer graduates of the program.

Other residents also received awards during the ceremony for acing this year's Rite in Anesthesiology. The awardees include first-year residents Dr. Amai Anthony V. Ong Vaño (with a percentile rank of 90 percent) and Dr. Terence L. Quisumbing (99++ percent), and second-year residents Dr. Michael C. Cotecson (91 percent) and Dr. Gleceil Mae M. Rubillos (94 percent).

Continuing the habit of excellence, two of the residents also topped the national Rite. Dr. Franz Aaron B. Jueco ranked eighth for third-year residents while Dr. Terence L. Quisumbing placed first for first-year residents for the Anesthesiology Rite in the Philippines.

Under the helm of its chairman Dr. Darwin James G. Alvarez and its training officer Dr. Robinson C. Lui, the Department of Anesthesiology aims to continue producing equally competent graduates founded on professionalism, integrity and compassion.

UCMed’s Anesthesiology residency program has been accredited by the Philippine Board of Anesthesiology since 2018.
