WorldCitiMed Houses Resident Doctor Achievers

World Citi Medical Center is proud to house outstanding Resident Doctors from the Internal Medicine Department who had their Research Papers accepted, presented and published locally and internationally.

In 2018 alone, eight (8) research outputs from WorldCitiMed – Department of Internal Medicine graced the international and local scene of the medical industry.

Four of these are Case Reports and the other half are Meta-Analyses intended to help understand certain medical conditions under the Doctors’ respective subspecialties. These studies paved way to the recognition of both World Citi Medical Center as a learning institution, and grounds for scientific knowledge and improvement of the practice of Medicine.

Dr. Rosalinda Dizon, Training Officer of the Department of Internal Medicine, perceived these achievements as a great prestige because the institution has representatives who participate in these aspects of the medical field. She considers research as a vital part of the residents’ training. Hence, these feats further exemplified the standing of the hospital as a training institution. These are the following:
