SWU PHINMA: Goes Beyond Medicine

Southwestern University PHINMA, traditionally known for its outstanding medical and allied health programs, launched seven non-medical courses through “Down the Rabbit Hole”, a night of magic and boundlessness held at the function hall of Bohol La Roca in 20 January 2018.

Salazar encouraged student to be part of this new journey being undertaken by SWU. “You wouldn’t want to miss this,” he said. “Because this thing that we’re brewing, it’s magic.”

The exclusive launch featured a whimsical performance of acrobats, and jugglers from Jumping Jack Acrobats, and remarkable improve performances by Simon Lastimosa, Jean Seraña, Darwin baliton, James Clapano, Jane Alcala, Erika Naruasa, Joyce Marie Roan, Cornillo Pahang, and Van Duke Gacayan. The event also featured the launch of the SWU Next ad.

“SWU’s PHINMA’s paramount thrust is to develop students to become the best that they can be,” said Chito Salazar, SWU President. “We launched the SWU Next programs to provide more opportunities to achieve that goal. SWU PHINMA has established its distinction in its Medicine and Allied Health programs. Today, we are extending this pursuit for excellence in other areas that are less traditional. And as this event has shown , we are not afraid to go against the grain and do things that have never been done before because we are fueled by our student’s passion to change the world, whether it’s through Architecture, Business, Communications, IT or any other career.

“The programs we have beyond Medicine are diverse and exciting in their own different ways. What ties them together is having a deep understanding of humanity at the core of their curriculums, allowing our students to properly address humanity’s most fundamental needs. And this is what will set us and our graduate’s part.”
