Skinvigorate 2017

The Department of Dermatology in cooperation with the Skin Research Foundation of the Philippines, Inc launched with great success our 15th Post-graduate course entitled, "Synergy of Advanced Dermatology and Lifestyle Medicine" last June 21, 2017 at the Ruby Ballroom of Crowne Plaza Galleria Manila. 

To all those who supported us in making our event a big success, our sincerest thanks! 

Let us share with you an article by the Philippine Dermatological Society which highlights the best moments of this event (click here).

Skinfinity 2016

Thank you so much for the overwhelming support for the JRRMMC 14th Post-Graduate Course, Skinfinity, last July 15, 2016 as we explored the limitless possibilities of cosmetic and procedural dermatology. We are overwhelmed with the record number of registrants and the good feedback. We hoped that you learned and enjoyed Skinfinity as much as we did! We hope to see you again in our future events.

Dr. Lawrence M. Field Visit

The department is deeply honored and grateful for being visited by Prof. Dr. Lawrence Marshall Field - the Father of International Dermatologic Surgery. 

He presented lectures on tangential excision, bilevel anesthesia and showed us some of his previous surgeries.

We also witnessed his expertise as he guided us in some of our procedures at JRRMMC.

Thank you, Dr. Field for giving us the inspiration and enthusiasm to develop our knowledge and skills in the field of dermatologic surgery!

Brand New Conference Room!

February 22, 2016 -  Through the initiative of our very hard-working chairman, Dr. Ma. Flordeliz Abad-Casintahan and the support of the administration, alumni, families and friends who have encouraged us to dream big, we have finally opened our new conference room. The blessing of this new space was graced by the Hospital Director Dr. Emmanuel F. Montana, and representative of the JRRMMC alumni Dr. Remedios Manuel. Finally, we have a venue to call our own for meetings, grand rounds, case and research presentations. Rest assured that this room will be put into good use and will serve as a bridge to excellence in learning and teaching.
