What started out as a noble idea of Brod Johnny Yee Fong Φ1966 soon became reality as the new College of Medicine of San Beda College began operations in April 2002. Serving as its previous deans were Mariano Vinluan Dela Cruz, Jr. Φ1949, Noel Giron Guison Φ1977 and Ferdinand Francis Maria De Leon Cid Φ1977.

Congratulations, Brod Dino! All for PHI!

Phi Class 2013


It’s official.

Last September 14, 2013 at the Plenary Hall of the Philippine International Convention Center (PICC), fourteen Loyal Sons of the Phi Kappa Mu Fraternity were among those who recited their Hippocratic Oaths to be part of the country’s newest batch of physicians.

The afternoon started with the board passers taking the seats at the front of the hall, while their proud parents sat at the back. The topnotchers of the recent board examinations, which includes Brod Abdelsimar “Buddy” Tan Omar II Φ2008B, were asked to occupy the table situated at the front of the stage.

The program began at around half past one o’ clock in the afternoon with a processional and an invocation, which was immediately followed by the singing of the Philippine national anthem and the PRC Hymn. After the opening remarks, the soon-to-be officially licensed physicians took the Oath of Professionals and Oath of Hippocrates with uncontainable pride and excitement.

The program proceeded with the awarding of Plaques of Recognition to the 8 top performing schools, starting from number 8 to number 1. The University of the Philippines – College of Medicine, being one of four schools bagging a 100% passing rate (149 passers out of 149 examiners), was awarded last. When the name of Dean Agnes Mejia was called to receive the award, loud cheering and a standing ovation welcomed her, soon followed by Brod John Faustine Danan Gutierrez Φ2008B, Class President of UPCM Class 2013, leading the class cheer with his familiar, resonating voice:

“Dos Mil Trese! Lahat Posible! What’s your bet? All in! 2013!”

The master of ceremonies next recognized the examinees who registered grades that were among the top 10 in this batch of board passers. The UP College of Medicine produced 5 topnotchers in the Top 10, headlined by the class valedictorian Dr. Daniel Guevara and Dr. Buddy Omar Φ2008B, both with a score of 88.75%, earning them the 2nd place among all examiners. Brod Buddy Omar went up the stage accompanied by his mother, Dr. Farrah Tan Omar, who herself is a PHI. They were met with the warm congratulations of Dr. Mejia as they descended the platform.

With a message by board first placer Dr. Ang and the closing remarks of Dr. De Ocampo, the program ended with the Philippines having 1,834 new licensed physicians.


The Phi Kappa Mu Fraternity congratulates the newest PHI doctors:

Buddy Omar

Dr. Abdelsimar Tan Omar II, MD Φ2008B

Buddy was the most studious of the batch and it shows whenever he answers the most difficult of questions, tops the end-of-the-year comprehensive examinations and amazes with his excellent endorsements of the patient’s cases. There is no wonder why he was elected as the Fraternity’s Standard Bearer in 2011, and placed at number 2 in the recent physician licensure examinations. Buddy plans to return to his hometown as a Neurosurgeon.

Jayson (or Papi, as he is fondly called by the brods) is the Fraternity’s culinary expert, making pulutans taste like exquisite delicacies.

Papi plans to go back to Pangasinan as a General Surgeon, and vows to continue the annual PHI fellowship at Dagupan.

Dr. Jon Paolo Sandico Pineda, MD Φ2008B

Paolo’s main thrust in the Fraternity was the recruitment of worthy, noble men into the Fold. He served as the Brother Prior who welcomed the talented and dedicated men of Phi Batch 2011.

Congratulations brods! All for PHI!

In the evening of August 24, 2013, banters and cheers filled the penthouse of the MediCard Lifestyle Center in the heart of Makati as doctors from all over the world, of different generations and of various backgrounds gathered for what figured out to be a night of merrymaking. Neither incessant rains nor the consequent flooding could dissuade them from giving in to the call of brotherhood. It was only proper, as the Phi Kappa Mu is celebrating 80 strong years as the Most Venerable Fraternity of the UP College of Medicine!

At around 6 pm, the resident brods started welcoming alumni, young and old, to the event. The host, MediCard Philippines president Brod Nicanor Cesar Bruno Syquia Montoya Φ1987, was with them in making sure that everything was in order. Early birds included the pioneer of neuroradiology, CT scanning and MRI in the Philippines, Brod Benjamin Dimaano Adapon Φ1953, and the very first neuro-ophthalmologist in the country in Brod Timoteo Baltazar Jimenez Φ1946. Brod Jose Santiago Eustaquio Φ1937 also graced the brods with his presence as he continues to prove to be an expected presence in the gatherings of the recent past.


Trays of appetizing food and bottles of exquisite spirits brought by the brods were lined up at the balcony for everyone to share. The program began when Brods Angelo Maria Mendoza Salonga Φ2012, Jose Nicolo Domingo Antonio Φ2012, and Jose Joaquin Herrera Arroyo Φ2012 called the room to order, as Brods were finishing up their meals and wrapping up for the meantime their individual conversations.


Brod Jose Castillo Gonzales Φ1969A then presented an update regarding the status of the Phi Residence Hall. Immediately after addressing the crowd, even Brod JoeGon was surprised to find himself approached by brods who readily pledged their assistance for such a purposeful undertaking, and by those who volunteered to help out more.


The selection of a new Board of Directors for the Phi Kappa Mu Alumni Association was included in the night’s agenda. Arriving at the end of his tenure, outgoing Phi Kappa Mu Alumni Association President Jose Jonas Dino Del Rosario Φ1986 oversaw the election of his successors. Chosen were Brods Gil Martinez Vicente Φ1977, Bernardo Dimacali Dimacali Φ1978, Jubert Pasion Benedicto Φ1987, Nicanor Cesar Bruno Syquia Montoya Φ1987, and Christopher Mallore Enriquez Calaquian Φ1991. The newly elected officers then decided among themselves who was to take on Brod Jonas’ mantle as alumni president. Deservedly, Brod Gil Martinez Vicente Φ1976 emerged victorious, and was proclaimed president with immediate effect.

Brods Maloy Calaquian '91, Nicky Montoya '87, Gil Vicente '76 and Bernie Dimacali '78 were chosen to head the Alumni Association.

Just as the excitement stemming from the recently concluded elections was dying down, brods were then regaled by video presentations prepared by Brod Ryle Siegfrid Ong Li Φ2012 describing what has been and what is yet to come in celebration of the Fraternity’s 80th year.

As the program came to a close, Brod Orville Cortez Ocampo Φ1987 took the liberty of acknowledging the presence of brothers coming from other countries. Brods Arsenio Gonzales Buendia Φ 1964 SE 1968-1969 (Oklahoma City, OK), Henry Caoili Echiverri (Warrenville, IL) and Ernesto Serrano Rivera Φ 1984 (Roseville, CA) represented the many brods in the US in this night’s celebration.

PHI International. Brods Bong Rivera '83, Henry Echiverri '77A and Archie Buendia '64 SE '68-'69 live and practice in the USA.

Brod Orville then called forth every PHI in attendance to sing the hallowed Fraternity Song. Led by Brod Jose Santiago Eustaquio, Jr. Φ1937 and Brod Arsenio Gonzales Buendia Φ1964 SE 1968-1969, the gathering hall shook as voices representing the various eras of the Fraternity throughout its existence rang as one. It was a sight to behold; it was a memory worth cherishing. Truly, the brotherhood that is the Phi Kappa Mu is very much alive within every PHI.

The night ended in the warm fellowship of the Fraternity as one would recall only the laughs, cheers and songs when thinking of what has passed. With the overwhelming success of this event, every PHI went home looking forward to the Anniversary Ball on the 17th of December 2013.




The 80th Anniversary Dinner would not have been as memorable were it not for the generosity of our gracious host, brod Nicanor Cesar Bruno Syquia Montoya Φ1987 and the dedication of Venerable Preceptors Kenneth Roy Perez Mendoza Φ 2010 and Kim Paolo Lugtu Lorenzo Φ2010, and brod John Harvey Monzon Beza Φ2012.

Semper PHI!

Loyal Sons of the Phi Kappa Mu, both resident brods and alumni alike, have joined the social media-initiated nationwide rally entitled Million People March last August 26, 2013 to call for the abolition of PDAF and higher fund appropriation for healthcare, particularly for the UP - Philippine General Hospital.

The student brods marched with the Philippine General Hospital representatives, led by PGH Director Brod Jose Castillo Gonzales Φ'69A. The delegation was also joined by numerous students, faculty and staff of the UP College of Medicine and residents, consultants and employees of the Philippine General Hospital. The group condemns the corrupted pork barrel system and calls for a higher fund allocation for PGH.

Joining the PGH contingents was neurosurgery resident and famed storyteller Brod Ronnie Enriquez Baticulon Φ'03, who earlier this month wrote a column for the Philippine Daily Inquirer about the pork barrel issue. He decries how the gross injustice ultimately affects the Filipino patient. "It's a shame," he writes, "If that amount, or even just a small part of it, had instead been used for the improvement of facilities and purchase of surgical equipment in regional hospitals, or to expand the health coverage of the marginalized... How many families would have been spared the unnecessary loss of a breadwinner, homemaker, son, or daughter?" (Read more: It's a shame)

Present with the PGH delegation were alumni brods Jose Castillo Gonzales Φ'69A, Ronnie Enriquez Baticulon Φ'03, John Paul Emerson Serrato Mariñas Φ'04B, Gerald Marion Maramag Abesamis Φ'05, Alvin Anthony Patricio Anastacio Φ'06, and John Faustine Danan Gutierrez Φ'08B.


Brods from all over the country also joined the cause with their respective groups and families, including Department of Health Undersecretary Teodoro Javier Herbosa Φ'79A, Benigno Amor Agbayani, Jr. Φ'86, Jose Jonas Dino Del Rosario Φ'86, Gary John Vergel De Dios Mercado Φ'86, Winston Valentine Lopez Villar Φ'86, Alfredo Dela Torre Calendacion, Jr. Φ'91, Fabian Arnel Angeles De Jesus Φ'92, Rommel Fernando Fernando Φ'95B, Brian Michael Icasas Cabral Φ'96B SE '00-'01, and Nestor Don Nepomuceno Santiago Φ'02. Brod Ronaldo Aspillaga Paraan Φ'73 and Jaifred Christian Fellicilda Lopez Φ'06 joined the march in Baguio.



Phi Kappa Mu Official Statement on PDAF

The Priority Development Assistance Fund (PDAF), also known as the “pork barrel”, is a discretionary fund made available to members of Congress for the purpose of financing priority development programs and projects identified by its members. The responsibility and power to budget, allocate and eventually use these funds built largely on the money of the Filipino people are thus vested on a chosen few. Recently, we have learned how the potential for corruption can be realized as public officials have been implicated in probably one of the largest political scandals to date.

The Phi Kappa Mu Fraternity of the University of the Philippines – College of Medicine since its founding in 1933 has stood up for integrity and excellence in the practice of medicine and delivery of healthcare in the country. As medical students and physicians affiliated with the Philippine General Hospital, we see every day how many Filipinos suffer and die from their illnesses due largely to their inability to afford medical services. We do all that we can and make the most of all that we have for the welfare and recovery of our patients but, more often than not, the budget for the Philippine General Hospital is barely sufficient to provide even the most basic of their medical and surgical needs, as is the case in most government healthcare institutions.

We strongly condemn the misallocation and downright plunder of the Philippines’ public treasury. We are calling for the complete dissolution of the PDAF and the entire pork barrel system, the lawful and thorough investigation and conviction of all those implicated, a comprehensive probe for similar incidences of corruption yet to be elucidated, and the recovery of funds lost. The public treasury should be instead used to provide basic social services to every Filipino. We are lobbying for a greater appropriation of funds to the healthcare system of the country and to all government hospitals, especially to the Philippine General Hospital, the national university hospital and referral center of the Philippines.


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.
