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.



“High School in MCU prepared me well in the long road where I am today. It has taught me the basics of leadership and teamwork. High School in MCU made me experience successes and frustrations, as well as how to deal with these. Some of my mentors in High School continue to flash in my mind, when I am confronted by situations that they taught how to deal with.”
