For the past weeks, the Board of Trustees (BOT) of the Ultrasound Society of the Philippines has been in the center of attention regarding the Board Resolution 03-2017. Please allow me to explain as a member of the Ultrasound of the Society of the Philippines for 25 years and for being a Board Examiner of the Society.
It is disheartening to hear and be accused of something untrue and be labelled as a “corrupt” member of the Ultrasound Society of the Philippines (USP) and the Philippine College of Radiology (PCR). I vehemently oppose such accusation explicitly coming from senior members and pillars of our society. Let us all be reminded that these issues are brought about by the changing and needs of time for the organization to endure and not for the advantage and convenience of any person or group of individuals. The favourable effect of this action probably may not be felt by now, but I do believe that someday this will be understood as a good intention for the advancement of this organization. More so, I do hope when time comes, any future member of the board will not suffer from such perceived malicious or malevolent denunciation, whether is it uttered unintentionally or inappropriately posted on social media. We are all professionals and are expected to talk in reasonable manner, for respect begets respect.
The board welcomes and appreciates all comments and suggestions without prejudice to all and we continuously strive to be as impartial as we could be for the greater majority.Read More
