Philippine Ambassador weighs in

Rate this Entry

by Chris Musillo

Willy C. Gaa, the Philippine Ambassador to the United States has written a strong letter to FSBPT Director William Hatherill condemning the FSBPT's recent testing ban on Philippine, India, Egyptian, and Pakistani graduates. In the letter Ambassador Gaa said that the testing ban was "arbitrary" and "a blanket indictment" on the credibility of all Philippine Physical Therapists. He calls for the FSBPT to revoke the testing ban and to work with the Philippine government to address the problem of review center abuses.

Ambassador Gaa outlined efforts that the Philippine legislature has taken to ensure the integrity of standardized tests, including a fast-track bill to give broader authority to the Philippine Commission on Higher Education (CHED) to regulate review centers.

    Hi Naga:
    The AILA Annual was a normal event. There was no dramatic news, which is why I didn't bother to put up a special posting. Is there something specific that you're asking about?

    Dear Chris,
    Thanks for the response. I just wanted to find out if the Nurse visa bill discussed and waht are the possibilities of introducing or attaching to to a major bill. I learnt that DREAM bill may be passed by congress this year. Is it true and what is the likelihood of passing.
