Hello,

I would like to know if there is a reciprocity agreement between the Philippines and the United States of America regarding the practice of physicians in both countries. Specifically, is there an agreement which allows an American who took up medicine here in the Philippines in a Filipino school, to take the Philippine board exam to practice here in Philippines.
