December 2021 : Vol. 5, Issue 2
In this 2021 December issue, we have a total of 15 articles, constituting five clinical studies, two each for Public Health Action Research and Medical Education, and one each for Qualitative Research, Q Methodology Research, Meta-analysis, Case Report, Viewpoint, and Oration. Our cover page depicts the Philippine national hero, Jose P. Rizal, a physician educated at the University of Santo Tomas, a writer, and who on the fateful day of December 30th was executed because of activism. Fast forward, we consider him an inspiration, as we transcend our local boundaries as physician researchers to the global arena.
