By Nefren Lobitana, Class 2020

Last March 1st 2017, representatives of clerks and interns met with Philippine General Hospital Director Dr. Gerardo D. Legaspi in a dialogue set by the 40th Medicine Student Council (MSC) to discuss their plights about the hospital and what can be done to alleviate these problems. The agenda included concerns regarding medical supplies (colloquially known as “stash”), the working conditions of the Emergency Room and its call rooms, electronic medical records system, mental health, and the shelling out of clerks and interns for the labs of their patients.
