President And Dean

Dr Brigido L Carandang, Jr. Dr. Brigido L Carandang, Jr., Fellow of the Philippine College of Physicians (PCP) and the Philippine Neurology Association (PNA), is the new President and Dean of the St Luke's College of Medicine-WHQM (SLCM) starting the academic year 2005-2006. Addressing the SLCM faculty, students and staff at the Opening Ceremonies on June 6, 2005, Dr. Carandang prioritizes Curriculum and Research among the various programs he intends to develop during his term as head of the College to make SLCM the number 1 school of medicine in the country in the next five years.

As a top-caliber institution, President Carandang envisions SLCM to graduate students who have a solid medical education background ready to hurdle the Physician Licensure Examination and be well prepared to go into any specialty residency training of their choice more than any other graduate of institutions that do not have state-of-art technology and expertise available only at the St Luke's Medical Center, the College's base hospital where all its graduates rotate for both clerkship and internship.

An alumnus (batch 1968) of the University of the East Ramon Magsaysay Memorial Medical Center College of Medicine, the President and Dean had one year of residency in Pathology and finished the training program in Internal Medicine. He pursued his residency training in Neurology at the University of California Davis Medical Center in Sacramento, California, USA.

Dr. Carandang serves both as a neurologist and an academician since his return to the Philippines. With his leadership prowess and management skills, he is now the President and Dean of the St. Luke's College of Medicine - WHQM. Among his research initiatives, Dean Carandang plans to pursue his investigative study of the "Bangungot" Syndrome as it inflicts young Filipino males. A major thrust of his administration is the alignment of the direction and programs of the College with that of its base hospital, the St Luke's Medical Center
