Reynante E. Mirano, MD, FPCEM

Dr. Ryan, as he is often called by his colleagues and friends is one of the pioneers of Emergency Medicine in the Philippines.  As one of the founding members of the Philippine College of Emergency Medicine and Acute Care (PCEMAC), he worked tirelessly to promote and advance the practice of emergency medicine in our country.  Notwithstanding humble beginnings, Doc Ryan finished his medical degree at the University of Santo Tomas and proceeded to complete his emergency medicine residency training at the Makati Medical Center.

He recalls it was not easy to practice EM in the past.  He juggled several duty shifts in between family activities and hospital administrative tasks.  Early in his practice, he was entrusted with the care of the Emergency Department (ED) as chair of the St. Luke’s Medical Center (SLMC), Emergency Department Services.  Recognizing the need to develop future EM specialists, he and his fellow EM consultants established the residency training program in SLMC.  Since then, a long line of doctors have experienced his firm yet quiet leadership as well as his warm and encouraging mentorship.  His passion for teaching is reflected not only in the ED but also in the College of Medicine (SLMC-William H. Quasha Memorial) where he is clinical associate professor.  In spite of his busy schedule, he has even found the time to educate and train health care professionals on disaster risk management as HOPE (Hospital Preparedness for Emergency) instructor and on resuscitation as Advanced and Basic Life Support Instructor.

“Stay focused and committed to your career,” is his advice to younger consultants who he continues to inspire with his hard work and perseverance.
