On top of the regular CPD activities, PAMET has organized several CPD programs for the month of September to be offered free of charge to all participants. It coincides with the extended national celebration of Medical Technology Week, which is observed every third week of September by virtue of Presidential Proclamation 1181 issued on September 6, 1973.
The first of a series of three free CPD programs is that of seminar on “Leadership” offered to Chief Medical Technologists from different institutions in Metro Manila. It was held on September 4 at Black Mamba in Quezon City.
During the Medical Technology Week proper, the pilot training-workshop on Phlebotomy will be given to recommended Medical Technologists from various laboratories. It will be a two-day activity on September 13 and 15, with East Avenue Medical Center as the venue.
Lastly on September 30, qualified PAMET members will have the opportunity to participate in the “Professional Development Program” which will be held at Crowne Plaza Galleria Hotel.
All activities mentioned were properly credited with CPD units by the Professional Regulation Commission.
