On February 20, 2011, I need to be in Cebu for the WONCA Asia Pacific Regional Conference and Philippine Academy of Family Physicians Annual Convention. I will also be conferred the title of Diplomate in Family Medicine. After passing only the written examination in December 2009, I was blessed to pass the OSCE (oral examination) last November 2010. And the good news arrived before Christmas.
Before the conference, my family will also visit a friend in Bohol who has been inviting us for the nth time. Nothing changed except for the initials DFM after my MD. I’m still treating and managing cases just like I use to with TLC - tender, love and care.
