Last August 2014, it came as no surprise as nine out of the nine medical board exam takers from the Phi Kappa Mu passed with flying colors, exemplifying the Fraternity’s Cardinal Virtue of Excellence. The fraternity would like to congratulate these Loyal sons, imbued with PHI values throughout their medical school life, as they formally took the Hippocratic Oath last October 4.
