The gears of a clock, turning towards the future. Each tick assured by perfect craftsmanship to be as good as those that came before it, as well as those to come. Classic, the work of a master. The mark of brotherhood, the years show that the fraternity has withstood the test of time, continues to move forward and reminds the future generation of those that came prior.

The gears of a clock, turning towards the future. Each tick assured by perfect craftsmanship to be as good as those that came before it, as well as those to come. Classic, the work of a master. The mark of brotherhood, the years show that the fraternity has withstood the test of time, continues to move forward and reminds the future generation of those that came prior.

Only a few institutions can claim to hit their 85th and keep the fervor and fire as when it was made. Still, we see in the fraternity that the flames of brotherhood still burn brightly. As we hit the 85th year, let us remind everyone why time favors the strong!


Expect a bigger and wilder Med-Law party in the Metro, as this year brings forth the 10th iteration of Verdict! In partnership with Regina Iustitiae sorority of Ateneo Law, Verdict X will be an awesome party as medical and law students put their books down for one night and have the time of their lives. Celebrate life ala-Day of the Dead as Verdict dons skulls and gets adorned with marigold to the theme of Día De Los Muertos. Have a great time with friends and strangers as you groove to the sick beats of the awesome DJs, win awesome raffles, and have an all-around magnificent night.

One Big Phi!

Witness the introduction of the newest batch of brods and sisses to the world in the great concert, One Big Phi! Get ready to soothe your souls as they take center stage and show the world what they’re made of. As they showcase their talent in music and dancing through their own special performances in OBP, look forward to musical performances from various bands inside and outside UPCM, not to mention the famous UPM band Ben&Ben. Rock to the music, drink with friends, and allow us to jam your night away.

Fraternity Induction Ball

It is often said that “there is a destiny that makes us brothers”. That destiny will soon be fulfilled once again brothers come together for the event that formally inducts the Untouchables Φ2017B to the fraternity: the Induction Ball. After going through the fires that all brothers have gone through, their conviction will finally be rewarded as they formally enter the Venerable Fold. This will also be the celebration of the Golden and Silver Jubilarians, Φ1967 and Φ1992, Cranial Nerves, respectively.

85th Founding Month

Each generation has celebrated the founding of the Most Venerable Fraternity every year, but this year’s celebration in particular will be greater than the others. Everyone will be reminded once again how the pillars of Excellence, Leadership, Service, and Brotherhood held up the creation of the fraternity. The wisdom of 85 years cannot be perceived by most people, yet here it is, giving us time and time again the teachings only an institution that lasted this long could give. Long live the legacy of the Phi Kappa Mu!

Project Hero

Expect a brand new beginning to PROJECT HERΦ, our flagship service project that gives hope to those who need it, the pediatric patients of Philippine General Hospital who face the burden of cancer. This year, we will launch the official first issue of SINAG, the comic book associated with the service project, at Rizal Park, Children’s Playground. With famous artists like Rico Rival and Peejay Catacutan, along with writers Christopher Salamaed Constantino, MD Φ2009, and Ace Chin, the comic book is sure to bring joy to the pediatric cancer patients. The comic book, which instills hope through the power of heroism, will be used to raise awareness and funding for donation to the Cancer Institute.

Usapang Isipan

A new service project launched last year, expect Usapang Isipan to grow even bigger in its quest to increase awareness and to address the mental health issues of the common Filipino.

Going further than training seminars for the students near the college, the project will now have a series of training in partnership with the UP-PGH Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Medicine to train Barangay Health Workers and students in recognizing common psychiatric disorders for prompt referral and management by physicians. A targeted implementation is planned at the Phi GK Village, placing a Mental Health Module study in the area to tackle any mental health issues there. As the training for delivering mental health services goes further to local communities, we are all humbled as we remember that we could all be part of the solution to the relevant mental health issues faced by people of the country.

Surgical and Medical Missions

Service, one of the Pillars of the Phi Kappa Mu, is the exemplary trait of a good doctor. With our burning desire to serve the people, expect the yearly circumcision missions, as well as various medical missions to treat those not regularly treated. As early as LU3, the brods are expected to uphold the pillar of Service and to give back to the Filipino people. While mainly for the service of the Filipino people through their treatment, the amount of experience the brods get from these missions also increases their skills, enabling to become even better doctors in the future. It is through this idea that the country benefits from these missions not only in the short-term, but also for the long haul.

Alumni visits

As Phi is forever, the warmth of brotherhood extends even past the corners of medical school. Expect Phi Dagupan, a yearly tradition of the Phi Kappa Mu Fraternity and the Phi Lambda Delta Sorority, and its offshoots to be even grander, as brods and sisses come together in this special time of fellowship. Taking times out of the year to go out and visit brods and sisses in the places far from Manila, it’s a great time to spend time with those too busy with their practices to regularly visit Manila.

Even “regular” get-togethers like Slambang and other inuman sessions cannot be relegated to mere regularity, as the 85th year is the best time to savor the warmth of brotherhood. As PHI, the moment that all of us cherish the most is when we get to spend time with our brods and get to know more about them. These moments and bonds forged through the fire of the Phi Kappa Mu is forever cherished, and always celebrated.

85th Ball

To cap it all of, get ready as we end the year with the 85th ball! A momentous occasion, expect the brothers from around the world to get together for this moment. If the legacy of 85 years cannot be easily imagined by mere mortals, never will proof ever be more concrete than in this event! History will unfold on this night, and everyone there will be overcome with the feeling that they are part of something bigger. A recap of the various activities that the Fraternity has done on its 85th year will be shown, and the memories of the history of the Most Venerable Fraternity will flood the minds of all who have attended.

The Year Ahead

The year looks as bright as ever, and the flame of the Phi Kappa Mu will be set even more ablaze. The 85th Year is the year that brotherhood grows ever stronger. Nothing less than great things are expected from us, and its delivery is something that is assured.


Established in August 1933 by the UP College of Medicine's best medical students, the PHI KAPPA MU (Fraternity of the College of Medicine) continues to uphold its tested tradition of Excellence, Leadership, Service and Brotherhood in the College, University and in our country.

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.
