NAGA CITY – After finishing her medical degree in Manila, Dr. Ma. Elizabeth E. Loria-Torres served as a medical officer in the remote town of Siruma in Camarines Sur. In one of the medical missions, she met an official of the Bicol Medical Center, who invited her to pursue her residency in the tertiary referral medical center. Since she is not from Bicol, she shrugged the idea at first. And she went on her plan to take her residency back in Manila. But after her first year of residency, she had a change of heart and reconsidered the invitation.
The BMC's residency training program, facilitated by the Professional Education, Training and Research Unit hailed Dr. Ma. Elizabeth Loria-Torres as the Most Outstanding Graduating Resident of 2021.
