Brotherhood: a timeless bond, a link that goes beyond generations, a quality that sets apart a fraternity from other fellowships. It is in this connection among brethren of the Phi Kappa Mu that one goes back to after his journey as a medical student.

It is in this spirit that the Phi Kappa Mu has been holding its Fraternity Riots annually. This year, the fraternity held its South Riot, Slambang in Alabang at Manong’s, Alabang last June 27. With gracious hosts and Venerable Preceptor John Harvey Monzon Beza Φ2012, the night was met with high anticipation. A bountiful feast with abundant drinks, and boisterous laughter filled the room as brods gathered.


As the night went on, and conversations were exchanged, it was highlighted that being part of the fraternity meant something more than a title. It was in these gatherings that one could see how strong the connections between the Phis have grown as the years progressed and new members were welcomed into the fraternity. The senior brods guiding the younger brods even in endeavors beyond medical school and the younger brods sharing with the seniors even their silliest experiences with the fraternity—the brotherhood was truly felt. The night concluded with the fraternity singing in harmony its esteemed hymn.


That evening might have ended, but the tradition of preserving the flame of 1933 will forever burn brighter as new bonds are forged into the fold.

Alumni brods in attendance were: Romeo Pilotin Ariniego ϕ1967, Venancio Petate Garduce, Jr. ϕ1976, Pio Renato Figer Villacorta ϕ1977, Benjamin Avelino Medalla Abela, Jr. ϕ1979, SE 1983-1984, Renato Trota Jose ϕ1980, Antonio Roberto Marave Abaya ϕ1981, Francisco Catibayan Manalo ϕ1981, Virgilio Mison Novero, Jr. ϕ1982A, Francisco Tupasi Valenzuela, Jr. ϕ1982A, Ernesto Antonio Jamias Valdez, Jr. ϕ1983, Alfredo Caasi Calado III ϕ1984A, Enrico Gil Cruz Oblepias ϕ1984B, Adrian Peter Erfe Desquitado ϕ1989B, Christopher Malorre Enriquez Calaquian ϕ1991, Fabian Arnel Angeles De Jesus ϕ1992, Jonathan dela Cruz Galingan ϕ2005, Ardynne Martin Corcelles Mallari ϕ2008B, Jon Paolo Sandico Pineda ϕ2008B. All for PHI!

Through the Fraternity's ideals and pillars, her Loyal Sons continue to lead, innovate and excel in the practice of medicine worldwide and in preserving the honor and integrity of the medical profession.
