Villar (Batch 2017) placed 3rd in the 43rd Interscholastic Clinico-Pathological Conference Competition presented by the UP Medical Students’ Society held at Philippine General Hospital Science Hall on March 5, 2016. They were accompanied by their adviser, Dr. Kristine Latorre-Mendoza.
Rounding up to the top 3 were teams from the University of the East Ramon Magsaysay (2nd place) and the University of Perpetual Help College of Medicine (1st place). The finalists were given a case of an 11-year old boy who was brought to the ER due to increasing lethargy. The final 3 were judged according to how they managed the medical condition of the subject patient.
