On Shoulders of Giants: A Message from an Elder Fellow to New Diplomates

Teodoro P. Llamanzares

 

Abstract:

Magandang Gabi po sa inyong lahat lalo na sa mga bagong specialista (o Diplomate) ng ating samahang PBO-HNS na pinararangalan natin ngayon; Ganuon din sa kanilang mga kabiyak, at mga magulang, mga marangal nating panauhin at syempre sa mga dati kong kasama sa PSO at PBO HNS. Itong samahang ito ang hindi tumitigil na paunlarin ang mga patakaran ng Society at para ang ENT Diplomate ay maging tunay na specialist at hindi “ispecialista daw.”

 

For the single ones among you, let’s give your parents special citation for having sacrificed not only once during your medical student days but twice-during your residency days. Their encouragement and material aid are phenomenal. Likewise to those married, your spouses either had a more challenging housewife’s role or became “housebands” during your busy training days.
