SPEAKER Ferdinand Martin G. Romualdez congratulated Tacloban-based Doña Remedios T. Romualdez Medical Foundation (DRTRMF), also known as Remedios T. Romualdez (RTR), for topping the list of schools nationwide in the Physical Therapists licensure examination this year.

Likewise, Romualdez who is a Representative of the First District of Leyte, is elated after learning that two out of the 10 top examinees in the said board exams came from the Tacloban school:

Dodievic Arma, who placed 5th, and Fatima Therese Doyon, who placed 10th.

“It gives me great pride whenever a school in my hometown achieves a remarkable feat in any event. And Doña Remedios T. Romualdez Medical Foundation or simply RTR as it is called in Tacloban, have made all Taclobanons proud by placing first nationwide in the PT board exams,” Speaker Romualdez said in congratulating the performance of RTR, especially the college of physical therapy led by Dean Jay Anthony Cañete.

“And it also gives me great pleasure to know that we have topnotchers in the city! This calls for a double celebration!” he added.

According to the Professional Regulation Commission (PRC), 708 out of 1,026 passed the board examinations for physical therapists given this June.

RTR registered a 92.11% passing rate when 35 out of its 38 board takers passed the examinations, making it the top school nationwide in the category of having 30 or more examinees.

It posted a 100% passing rate for all first-takers of the board exams.

“I congratulate the officials, faculty, employees and students of RTR for this wonderful achievement! It really goes to show the top-notch caliber of education in your institution. Keep up the good work of training excellence for years to come!” Speaker Romualdez said.

RTR was founded in 1980 through the initiative of Romualdez’s father, then Leyte Governor Benjamin Romualdez, and named after the governor’s mother, Remedios T. Romualdez.
