SLCM Otorhinolaryngology Chairman receives international recognition
Benjamin S.A. Campomanes, MD, Chairman of the Otorhinolaryngology-Head & Neck Surgery Department has been invited as member of the International Editorial Board of the Journal "Clinical and Experimental Otorhinolaryngology". Sponsored by the Korean Society of Otorhinolaryngology, the journal is set to be launched this coming September.
One of the major roles of the International Editorial Board is to provide developmental goals and to create constructive directions for the journal instead of just reviewing the submitted papers. It is likely that the Editorial Board meetings will coincide with renowned International Otorhinolaryngology conferences held in Europe or the United States.
Dr. Campomanes is no stranger to international gatherings. He is frequently invited to lecture at international conferences such as that of the International Rhinologic Society (IRS), International Symposium on Infection and Allergy of the Nose (ISIAN) and the Asian Research Symposium in Rhinology (ARSR). Furthermore, he is also repeatedly invited as faculty in international courses such as the Endoscopic Sinus Surgery Courses at the Seoul National University in South Korea and AO Craniomaxillofacial Course in Davos, Switzerland.
Dr. Campomanes graduated with a degree of Doctor of Medicine at the University of Santo Tomas where he also took his residency in Otorhinolaryngology-Head & Neck Surgery. He did further training in the subspecialty of Rhinology at the University of Utrecht in the Netherlands and University of Graz in Austria.
Benjo, as he is fondly called, joined St. Luke's Medical Center in 1992. He started teaching at St. Luke's College of Medicine in 1998 and in 2005 became Chairman of the Department of Otorhinolaryngology-Head & Neck Surgery. Aside from sharing his expertise to aspiring medical doctors, he has also undertaken significant researches in his field of specialization. Furthermore, he is part of St. Luke's College's Management Committee, where he actively shares inputs towards improving the learning experience for the students.
Such international recognition by Dr. Campomanes provides a big boost to St. Luke's College's vision of becoming the best in the country.
