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.




I have been privileged to be of service to MCU for the past many years where I grew and developed personally and professionally, thereby being able to contribute to the development of many young minds in MCU while in pursuit of the university’s mission and vision. My learning and experiences in MCU have enabled me to meaningfully contribute and influence towards the enrichment of groups and organizations outside of MCU.
I am very hopeful that MCU will continue its successful endeavors as an educational institution. May the 110th foundation of the university usher in more decades of offering quality education and produce world-class graduates.
