Dr. Mary Grace Magallen, the young chief resident of Department of Internal Medicine at San Pedro Hospital, was awarded Most Outstanding Resident in Internal Medicine by the Philippine College of Physicians this week. She bested 15 other nominees from all over the Philippines.
The young doctor has finished several research papers, and has presented some of her work in Taipei and Kuala Lumpur. This year, Dr. Magallen is slated for an oral presentation at the Digestive Diseases Week in Chicago, Illinois.
On a personal note, Dr. Magallen was the resident on duty when we rushed Wifey’s father to the hospital last year due to stroke. She was also Wifey’s schoolmate in the University of the Immaculate Conception.
Congratulations, Doc! You have made Davao City proud.
