    MANILA, Philippines – Coming from two clans of doctors, Ray Zanoria Perez II also dreamed of becoming a physician. This dream would become a reality when he passed the 2019 Physician Licensure Exam (PLE) he took last September 7, 8, 14 and 15.

    As Perez became a full-fledged doctor, he would go viral not only for ranking second place in this particular Board Exam but also because it was revealed that he was also a topnotcher in another board exam in 2013!

    With a score of 92.10%, Perez earned the highest place in the MedTech Board Exam back in September 2013 after earning his BS Medical Technology degree from Velez College in Cebu City.

    As the topnotcher in the 2013 MedTech Board Exam, he decided to pay it forward by becoming a teacher at his Alma Mater and also a reviewer at the ACTS Medical Technology Review Center. He wanted to help other students pass the licensure exams as well.

    Though he dreamed of becoming a doctor, he stayed an educator for 2 years before finally enrolling at Cebu Institute of Medicine (CIM) in 2015.

    The MedTech topnotcher would repeat the feat in the 2019 Physician Licensure Exams, ranking second with a rating of 90.33%.

    “My driving force for this goal was just the recognition that the opportunity to study medicine is a blessing and a privilege, and so I had to make the most out these God-given blessings,” Perez said.

    The 27-year-old Perez is not sure where he would work now that he’s a full-fledged doctor but plans to take up residency specializing in Internal Medicine. Moreover, he plans to ensure that he would give his patients his 100% effort, just like how he focused on his reviews and topping both board exams.

    He also wants to inspire future doctors.

    “Medicine is not a right but a privilege. All the money spent on tuition, books, studying out, all those sleepless nights, the emotional roller coaster that is medical school, will all be worth it in the end; that is, only if one puts it in the proper perspective. Stick with it. Pray hard and work hard,” he advised.

    Congratulations, Dr. Perez!
