MP backs tuition of 3 Medicine students
by PIA–Mt. Province

BONTOC, Mountain Province – Three students in the province are benefiting from the Medial Doctors Scholarship Program of the provincial government.

Simonette Clyde Fangasan of the Provincial Governor’s Office said the students are all female, one from Paracelis and two from Natonin. One is in third year of Medicine proper studying in Vigan while the two are in their second year in Cagayan.

The Medical Doctors Scholarship Program, established through an ordinance, aims to address the shortage of medical doctors in provincial government-run hospitals in the province.

In a resolution, the sanggunian panlalawigan noted that for the past several years, there has been a constant change of medical practitioners, particularly at the Paracelis and Barlig district hospitals which caused problem in the delivery of health services.

The ordinance provides that the provincial government will shoulder the actual cost of the grantee’s tuition including laboratory fees, but not to exceed P50,000. The tuition shall be paid directly to the school where the grantee is enrolled.

It also provides a book allowance of P10,000 per semester, which shall be released on the first month of each semester; uniform allowance of P4,000 per year to be released on the first month of the first semester of each year; a monthly living subsidy of P10,000 for five months on each semester, which shall include lodging and transportation expenses.

A grantee  may be terminated from the program if he or she incurs failing grades, refuses to continue schooling, and for other justifiable grounds like dishonesty, other forms of gross misconduct or acts inimical to the interest of the provincial  government.

Termination of the grantee from the medical scholarship program, or refund of all the money spent in the scholarship program or both penalties shall be imposed on a grantee who violates any of the provisions of the ordinance and the terms and conditions stipulated in the memorandum of agreement.
