In the academic community, there are many faculty members and researchers who are prolific in research and publication. It is important for their research outputs to be disseminated to interested stakeholders here and abroad. Unfortunately, researchers oftentimes cannot present their research outputs, particularly to the international research community, due to lack of funds. The UPMAS RDG is an award to outstanding UPMAS lifetime members, affiliated with UPCM and/or other institutions as faculty and/or researchers ( including trainees ), who receive invitations or gain acceptance to present their research papers in prestigious international conferences.
With the RDG, UPCM ALUMNI faculty and researchers are encouraged to conduct and publicize high-quality research that would make the University of the Philippines College
of Medicine and its alumni more visible in the international research community. Participation in international conferences would also expose our UPCM ALUMNI faculty
and researchers to cutting-edge research and could provide opportunities to forge collaborations with leading researchers in the world.
