The Department of Internal Medicine of UCMed is now accepting incoming residents to its roster.

Spearheaded by its chairman Dr. Lamberto M. Garcia Jr. and training officer Dr. Nello Bayani IV R. Roa Jr., the Department of Internal Medicine welcomes applicants for this year and aims to make the residency program a leading training vehicle designed to level up medical professionals into competent
