This will be the first call for volunteers for the Bukidnon mission.
Again the dates are from 2/2 to 2/7 or 2/8. The clinics will end on 2/6 but there will be a CME conducted by UPCM alumni for the local MDs and RNs on 2/7. Also the evaluation session will be tentatively in the morning of 2/7 followed by a local tour of Bukidnon.
The Pahinungod group may go ahead with the R&R on 2/7 before departing for Manila in the evening.
The rest can leave on 2/8 following an R&R. Note this is still under consideration.
As for flights, everyone will have to fly to Cagayan de Oro to arrive before 9:00 am on 2/2. Both PAL and Cebu Pacific have 2 early flights from Manila. The buses provided by the governor will depart from the airport around 9:30 am for Malaybalay.
Note the official email for the medical mission chair. Please do not send email to my yahoo account. Thanks
Preparations – Malaybalay, Bukidnon from Feb 2-7, 2020.
Again please make sure your PRC licenses are current. If not, you (MDs and RNs except for the DTDTs) will have to apply for a Special Temporary Permit. Go to the website of the Philippine Regulation Commission and under the section of International Affairs, download the application and the requirements. Note that as of May 2019, PRC no longer requires authentication of US licenses by the Philippine Consulate provided that your US license will have the Apostille stamp by the respective Secretary of State. For more information, google Apostille stamp and your respective state. After completing the requirements, please mail the documents to Jovel Dacumos of Pahinungod. Her address is Ugnayan ng Pahinungod, Mezzanine Floor, PGH Central Building, Taft Ave, Ermita, Manila, Philippines. I can also deliver the documents when I go to the Philippines in October.
