The Pamantasan ng Lungsod ng Maynila (PLM) celebrates the success of its College of Medicine graduates who passed the March 2023 Physician Licensure Examination.
CM alumnus Philip Patrick Lee ranked Top 2 out of all the passers, having scored 88.58% in the board exam. PLM's Sjerlive Clare Dioneda, Betina Hernandez, Amanda Nicole Redillas and Lara Denielle Zuñiga are also part of the latest batch of licensed medical doctors.
PLM tallied a 100% passing rate, a rare feat among medical schools in the country. This is well above the national passing rate of 54.5%, or 1,573 successful examinees out of 2,886 test takers.
“On behalf of the PLM community, let me congratulate our new medical doctors led by our topnotcher, Dr. Lee!,” University President Emmanuel Leyco said.
“We salute your perseverance and strength as you pursued your medical studies at the height of the COVID-19 pandemic,” he added. “May you inspire future health practitioners to keep the faith, and may you all use your skills in healing our people and our nation.”
