Ospital ng Maynila Medical Center Department of Dermatology
Holds Basic Dermatologic Surgery and Advanced Electrocautery Workshop
The Ospital ng Maynila Medical Center Department of Dermatology welcomed the year 2019 once again with its 7th Annual Basic Dermatologic Surgery and Advanced Electrocautery Workshop held at the OMMC Department of Dermatology OPD last January 10, 2019. The yearly workshop was spearheaded by OMMC dermatologic surgery consultant, Dr. Ida Tiongco, from New York – Presbyterian/Weill Cornell Medical Center.
Around 20 dermatology residents from PDS accredited institutions along with Ospital ng Maynila’s dermatology residents learned the essentials of dermatologic surgery with an interactive lecture given by the specialist herself. This was followed with the workshop proper which focused on the basic methods of biopsy and different suturing techniques.
The participants were able to gain hands-on experience with actual patients under the supervision of Dr. Tiongco and consultants of Ospital ng Maynila Dermatology. It was a successful day for academic learning, a celebration of camaraderie between the PDS institutions, and a heart-warming experience of giving back to the community.
