DEPARTMENT OF SURGERY
THE RESIDENCY TRAINING PROGRAM

Keeping-up with the nationwide thrust of the Philippine College of Surgeons (initiated during the presidency of Dr. Augusto P. Sarmiento - the first OLLH Chairman of Surgery as the OLLH departmentalized) in designing a structured training program for general surgeons, the OLLH surgery initiated the department's accreditation in GS Residency Training in the late 1970's. From then on, the department has sustained the GS Training Program and expanded into multiple clinical specialty sections. The program has graduated around 50 general surgeons to date. True to its vision of producing competent surgeons capable of practicing in rural and urban areas, our graduates are successfully practicing surgery in northern and Central Luzon, Southern Tagalog, Bicol Region, the Visayas, North Eastern Mindanao and the National Capital Region and the USA.
