The TYKFI-ABI Medical Specialty Scholarship Program continues to make it possible for many specialists and doctors to pursue medical specialty education abroad.
Through this program, each and every doctor who leaves and returns to the country with renewed medical knowledge makes modern, up-to-date and quality medical service available for our countrymen. With the newly-acquired medical skills of our scholars and state-of-the-art facilities of our hospitals in the country, the Philippines will also emerge as a top option for medical tourism in Asia.
In 2015, Dr. Jeremy James C. Munji , a TYKFI-ABI scholar in Orthopaedics, Arthroscopic and Reconstructive Shoulder Surgery, was accepted in a world-class fellowship in Annecy, France. He had the opportunity to work with Dr. Laurent Lafosse, a noted surgeon from Paris and an inventor of several surgical instrumentations for shoulder treatments and author of many studies and book chapters.
Dr. Munji operated and trained in the Clinique General in Annecy, France and Clinique General Beaulieu Geneva, Switzerland, both known for delivering first-class medical care.
