Bicol Regional Training and Teaching Hospital continually enhances the quality of training offered in medical through constant upgrading of its own personnel as well as accreditation of various training programs and hospital facilities. One of the departments that underwent accreditation last 2019 was Department of Anesthesiology.
Members of the Philippine Board of Anesthesiology who visited the department were Fidel C. Payawal, MD, DPBA and Anita V. Ocampo-So, MD, DPBA last October 16, 2019. Verification of requirements, and inspection of operating rooms were made by the accreditors to ensure that the hospital and the department have the capacity of giving quality residency training to residents in the field of Anesthesiology.
After the inspection, checking of all documents and discussion with consultants, visitors from the Philippine Board of Anesthesiology granted a 3- year accreditation of residency training program to the department. With this successful accreditation, BRTTH can continue providing efficient residency training to aspiring anesthesiologists.
