The Philippine Children’s Medical Center, Child Neuroscience Center is the biggest and the most comprehensive multidisciplinary training center in the country and perhaps in Asia. It is committed to promote the neurological and mental health of children, through excellent training, socially responsive and comprehensive service, and relevant research, using a collegial, interdisciplinary approach.
The Center continues to provide quality care and service to a huge number of children with varied neurological problems. It has shown a steady increase in the number of patients seen in the ward and at the out-patient. In order to be efficient in delivering service, the Center has embarked on creating clinical pathways on certain diseases such as status epilepticus, febrile and afebrile seizures, acute motor weakness, depressed sensorium and ADHD.
From its fellowship program it has produced 39 Child Neurologists, 11 child and adolescent psychiatrists, 12 neurodevelopmental pediatricians, 2 epileptologist and 1 otolaryngologist – all successful in their respective areas of practice.
With the great number and extensive array of neurological and neurobehavioral patients seen, the Child Neuroscience Center is a rich ground for initiating relevant research. The Center has a research unit with its research committee closely supervising and monitoring the consultants’ and fellows’ research projects and investigations.
