Fortunately due to his high academic standing, Dr. Collantes received a government scholarship which allowed him to attend ten years of an accredited college of medicine. Upon graduation, Dr. Collantes took an internship and residency training in general surgery. He then traveled to the United States to work in the emergency room in Columbus, Ohio.
