||Eduardo Vicente S. Caguioa, M.D.
Dr. Vic is strict, organized, and disciplined in his ways, making sure that everything is in order and that all interns and fellows get the quality education and training from his proud institution. He works fast, talks fast and looks like he takes mental note of time. He is the former GME head, a cardiologist, and an educator. He shuffles from the GME office to his clinic to the Heart Station.
For him, discipline is the key, and time management is a must, concepts he learned from childhood.
Dr. Vic says what he means and means what he says. Tardiness and being ignorant of set guidelines irk him, and he will not mince words to let you know that. But he is not an unforgiving man. He listens to reason and looks within so that he can initiate corrections.
After his fellowship in Cardiology in UST, he married charming colleague Priscilla, and they took off to US. While she was working on her specialization in medical oncology, he went to Harvard and finished his Fellowship in Cardiology with subspecialty in non-invasive procedures. Back at home in 1994, Dr. Vic entered as Faculty of the Department of Pharmacology and the Department of Medicine and Surgery. In 1995, he became the Training Officer of Residents in the Department of Medicine, concurrently the Training Officer of Fellows in Cardiology and Head of Echocardiology. Then, from 2003 to August 2010, Dr. Vic became the head of GME, managing the training of all interns and fellows in the UST Hospital.
