Healthway Medical has formalized its partnership with Ateneo de Manila University School of  Medicine and Public Health (ASMPH) as the institution’s affiliate community clinic. With this  collaboration, 4th and 5th year medical students of ASMPH are granted the opportunity to  complete supervised training at Healthway’s clinics during their clerkship and internship.  

This development is in line with the existing partnership between AC Health and Ateneo  Professional Schools (APS) that focuses on healthcare advocacy, research, and recruitment and  training.  

The signing event was held on February 23, 2021, with Paolo Borromeo, President and CEO of AC  Health, Dr. John Paul Vergara, Vice President of Ateneo Professional Schools, and Dr Cenon  Alfonso, Dean of Ateneo Professional Schools as acting signatories. The event was also attended  by Paul Darroca, President and CEO of Healthway, Dr. Irene Limpo, General Manager of  Healthway Family Clinics, Dr. Suzanne Pama, General Manager of Healthway Multi-Specialty  Clinics, and Dr. Sonny Duran, Medical Affairs Head of Healthway.  

“AC Health and the Ateneo Professional Schools continue to work towards our shared vision of  creating an integrated healthcare ecosystem which relies on doctors that are more than just  clinicians, but are also dynamic leaders and social catalysts. We are excited to welcome future  Atenean doctors into Healthway and provide them opportunities to enhance their patient care 

advocacy, ensure their professional competence, and maximize the resources available for  learning and formation, especially in this time of crisis when we need them most,” said Paolo  Borromeo, President and CEO of AC Health.  

“ASMPH is excited to launch this program with AC Health and to provide an opportunity for our  students to train across Healthway’s clinic network. Through the years, we continue to take pride  in our Atenean doctors who have served in the leadership and medical teams of AC Health’s  network, and are excited to open up this experience to our students, working towards providing  quality and accessible healthcare to patients,” mentioned John Paul Vergara, Vice President of  Ateneo Professional Schools.  

The first batch of interns began their rotations last January at select Healthway Family and Multi Specialty clinics. Under this partnership, Healthway provides a venue for practical skills training  supervised by physician mentors from Healthway’s pool of physicians. This is in line with ASMPH’s  advocacy for health leadership, public health research, and community engagement.
