Invited Keynote Speaker, 25th Anniversary, 2019

 

Feedback of Dean Fortunato Cristobal on the 25th anniversity of the ZMSF/ADZU-SOM in July 2019:

 

“I still feel that ADZU SOM owe much to you for setting us 25 years ahead of the rest of the Medical School in the country. What they are talking now about Terminal Competencies, 5 star physicians and Outcome Based education, OSCE etc, you had well articulated them in the  ADZU SOM curriculum. These cannot be erased in our history.”

 

“Looking back your mind set was way ahead of our times by 20 year+.  It is only now the other medical schools are considering seriously about Terminal Objectives, and about the 5-star physicians, when in fact you were the first to introduce the terms: Physician Clinician, Physician Manager, Physician Researcher, Physician Leader / Manager, and Physician Teacher ….. You were also the first to introduce PBL, competency-based, and COME curriculum in the Philippines, not to mention assessments like OSCE.”

In 1994, I HELPED established and developed ZMSF / ADZU-SOM;  still in existence as of 2019 (25 years now).

 

I HELPED design the innovative medical curriculum – problem-based, competency-based, community-based in 1993.

 

Majority of graduates are practicing in the region – 80% are practicing in the underserved municipality in Western Mindanao.

 

Graduates are serving as municipal health officers in underserved communities in the region.

First medical school in the Philippines with a dual MD-MPH degree program which started in 1998; has produced 381 MD-MPH graduates as of 2018.

 

 

 

Medical education program for faculty [1993 to 1996] Taught the faculty of ZMSF / ADZU-SOM on pedagogy and the innovative curriculum

Teleconference as a learning mode for surgical trainees based in Zamboanga City.

The University of the Philippines Manila Journal

June 1995 1(1):22-25

Teleconferencing is a form of distance education in which a conference is held between two parties who are not face-to-face with each other. This paper describes the authors experience with teleconferencing using audio equipment as a learning mode for surgical trainees based in Zamboanga City (ZC). Teleconferences were utilized in the authors General Surgery Course in ZC starting March 1994. The objectives were to evaluate the progress of students learning in the General Surgery course, to provide more teaching and learning activities, and to promote more frequent interactions between the ZC students and Metro Manila faculty. The design made use of active student learning and participatory activities, such as case discussion, panel discussion, and debate. At the end of five teleconferences held so far, the objectives were assessed to have been attained and teleconferencing will continue to be used to enhance the General Surgery Course of the author.

Invited Keynote Speaker, 25th Anniversary, 2019

 

Feedback of Dean Fortunato Cristobal on the 25th anniversary of the ZMSF/ADZU-SOM in July 2019:

 

“I still feel that ADZU SOM owe much to you for setting us 25 years ahead of the rest of the Medical School in the country. What they are talking now about Terminal Competencies, 5 star physicians and Outcome Based education, OSCE etc, you had well articulated them in the  ADZU SOM curriculum. These cannot be erased in our history.”

 

“Looking back your mind set was way ahead of our times by 20 year+.  It is only now the other medical schools are considering seriously about Terminal Objectives, and about the 5-star physicians, when in fact you were the first to introduce the terms: Physician Clinician, Physician Manager, Physician Researcher, Physician Leader / Manager, and Physician Teacher ….. You were also the first to introduce PBL, competency-based, and COME curriculum in the Philippines, not to mention assessments like OSCE.”

You can only do so much

My late brother, Ed, told me this before (circa 2014) and which I cannot forget: Rey, you can only do so much. I have heeded his advice but up to now, I am still struggling between enough and more. I have to keep on reminding myself – you can only do so much, Rey, in your whole life time! in a day! Accept this reality. Be contented with ENOUGH and with the MINIMUM activities, tasks and projects in a day and in your whole life time. Just be productive, contented, enjoying and happy! Use this as one of the strategies in your stress management program.

Monthly Reminder to Myself – ROJoson

Slow down but remain productive each day, each month, and each year guided by the formulated life plan @70to75.

No rat race.

Condition yourself to stay home in preparation for the eventuality.

My late brother, Ed, told me this before (circa 2014) and which I cannot forget: Rey, you can only do so much. I have heeded his advice but up to now, I am still struggling between enough and more. I have to keep on reminding myself – you can only do so much, Rey, in your whole life time! in a day! Accept this reality. Be contented with ENOUGH and with the MINIMUM activities, tasks and projects in a day and in your whole life time. Just be productive, contented, enjoying and happy! Use this as one of the strategies in your stress management program.
