The MCU Crest Award


Manila Central University and the MCU Filemon D. Tanchoco Medical Foundation have produced thousands of graduates now in their respective fields with many contributing significantly to society as leaders and practitioners.

The MCU Crest Award honors the people who have contributed to the success of MCU and have made their mark in the fields of health and allied professions. They are individuals who have selflessly provided their time and effort to make MCU what it is today.



“It was a fruitful and rewarding experience that I studied in MCU. I consider myself as a homegrown talent that led me to become a successful scientist.
Stay focused and continue to strive for excellence in your field of specialization. Then share your knowledge to everyone and always have your feet planted on the ground.”
