The University of Santo Tomas (UST) Faculty of Pharmacy Department of Medical Technology set a milestone in the recently concluded First Virtual National Quiz show spearheaded by the PAMET and PASMETH during its 48th Medical Technology Week Celebration. It was held on September 25, 2020 via Zoom. The three-peat back-to-back champion since 2018, UST has been consistently demonstrating academic excellence among the different schools of Medical Technology nationwide.
Justin Victor G. Ang received the Special award having been the top scorer among all competing students. The whole team received a cash prize, trophy, medals and certificates apart from the Key of Excellence that is awarded to the champion school.
This year’s team is composed of 4th year students who hurdled a tough screening process and interview: Justine Victor G. Ang, Alain Kenny N. Chong, Natalie Regina K. Cu and Daphne Sophia T. Javellana. Seventeen schools participated and aimed for the much coveted Key of Excellence.
The UST team is headed by Dr. Gregorio L. Martin along with other coaches, Dr. Edilberto Manahan, Asst. Prof. Alvin Rey Flores, Mr. Clarenz Concepcion, Mr. Earl Adriane Cano and Ms. Diana Mendoza. Former PAMET winners helped the team by conducting coaching sessions.
