The Cebu Institute of Medicine (CIM) had a perfect passing rate with 15 of its 15 takers hurdling the exams.  Cebu Doctor’s University had all its examinees passing the exams save for one repeater.  SWU had a good passing rate with its first time examinees but its overall passing rate was pulled down by a dismal 14% passing of its retakers. Gullas College of Medicine had a below average performance as only 21.57% of its 51 takers became licensed physicians.  All in all, the Cebu schools got a total of 49% which is a few percentage points higher than the national average of 48.7%.
Congratulations to all new doctors!!!
