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.

Last August 15, 2016, the Supreme Block Council of the Philippine General Hospital’s current batch of interns held PRN: Party As Needed, an acquaintance party for all UPCM interns and post-graduate interns at the Robinsons Place Residences function room. All interns not on duty were encouraged to attend for a night of good food, fun games, and great company.
