Despite the orders from the Association of Philippine Medical Colleges instructing medical interns to pull out from hospitals, over 100 interns at the Philippine General Hospital volunteered to go back on-duty to help the patients and the remaining health care workers in the hospital.
These interns are our modern heroes, putting their lives on the line to give their utmost care to COVID-19 patients.

“Last March 14, 2020, the Association of Philippine Medical Colleges gave out a directive to pull out medical interns out of all NCR hospitals. However, over 100 interns at the Philippine General Hospital volunteered to go back on-duty to help the patients and the remaining health care workers in the hospital.
The PGH Administration has since welcomed these reinforcements with assurances of PPE, food, lodging, and standby medical care for all of them.
The University salutes the hard work and bayanihan spirit among the frontliners, health workers, and medical professionals in the country’s battle against COVID-19.
Mabuhay po kayo!”
