The Professional Regulation Commission (PRC) has suspended its frontline services in some of its service centers on November 10, 11 and 16.


The commission cited the conduct of the second Physician Licensure Examination (PLE) as reason.

“In view of the conduct of the Physician Licensure Examination (PLE) on November 10, 11, 15, & 16, 2020 nationwide wherein maximum of the PRC officers and employees are assigned to assist in the administration of the same, the PRC hereby suspends the frontline services in the following PRC National Capital Region Office and Service Centers on November 10, 11, and 16,” read the advisory posted on their Facebook page Monday.

PRC said frontline services are suspended in PRC Morayta Office, PRC-Philippine International Convention Center (PRC-PICC) and all NCR offsite Service Centers at Robinsons Place Manila, Robinsons Galleria Ortigas, Robinsons Novaliches, and Robinsons Place Las Piñas.

The PRC said all appointments set on the said date will be accommodated upon resumption of operations on Nov. 12 and 17.

“Concerns and queries on relevant services may be sent to at the email address: [email protected],”said the commission.

On Saturday, the PRC said the Physician Licensure Examination (PLE) this month shall continue as scheduled as they “recognize the urgent need for physicians during these times of public health emergency” amid the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic.

The professional licensure examination for incoming physicians are administered twice a year.
