Silliman University is celebrating its 109th founding anniversary this week with a bang — this time with the 100 percent passing average of its seven graduates in the pioneering batch of the SU Medicine School.

Now, Dumaguete and Negros Oriental are producing their own doctors! Our own graduates don’t have to go elsewhere to study medicine. They can save a lot of money by getting quality medical education right in their own hometown!

In any course, especially one that requires a board examination, the pioneering batch is always the most difficult, because this is the batch that everyone will be waiting for. This batch’s performance will either make or break the college. But with the stunning 100 percent passing, the SU Medicine School can be assured that it will not be wanting in students in the coming years.

This is a wonderful achievement not only for Silliman but for the team of doctors in Negros Oriental led by Dr. Jonathan Amante, who had long been toying with the idea of starting a medical school. It was an idea whose time had come.

The 100 percent passing average is also a triumphant moment for the province of Negros Oriental because four of the seven new doctors were scholars of the Province.

Under this scholarship program initiated by the late Gov. Emilio Macias II, these doctors will be required to serve Negrenses for a few years before they go out to more lucrative frontiers.

With so many reasons to rejoice, the success of the seven new doctors is not just Silliman’s success. This is something every true Negrense can be proud of. This achievement is ours!
