PIA Press Release

Country looks for outstanding doctors

By Mai Gevera

Davao City (9 June) -- With the exodus of most physicians to foreign nations, an award-giving body now provides recognition to outstanding Filipino doctors who still remained in the country in order to serve their community.

The Outstanding Filipino Physicians 2009 (TOFP), a project of JCI Philippines in partnership with the Department of Health, the Philippine Health Insurance Corporation and the Philippine Charity Sweepstakes Office, is now open for nomination of qualified doctors.

JCI National Chairman Philip Briones stressed that this is one project that would encourage more doctors to extend service especially in far-flung areas.

The award goes to physicians who contribute greatly to public health and community medical services that impact on the Philippine Millennium Development Goal targets.

The doctors must have exemplary achievements or practices that bring about better health outcomes, more responsive health systems, and equity in health care financing.

TOFP is open to every Filipino physician, at least 41 years of age, with good moral character, and has dedication to the medical profession.

"We would prioritize those doctors to the barrio who dedicated their profession by giving service to the less fortunate," said Briones.

Nominees to the TOFP award will be pre-screened using the Nomination Book submitted by the nominator. The nominator must cite in the book the nominees' background, scope of medical activities, and exceptional achievements.

Entries must be submitted on or before September 11, 2009 to TOFP Awards 2009, JCI Senate Philippines or email it to (PIA XI) [top]
