Chapter President’s Message

Warmest greetings!

We gladly invite you to participate in the 23rd PAMET Midyear Convention on May 9-12, 2018. The convention will be held at SM Trade Halls, San Miguel Street, General Santos City.

With the theme “Strengthening Competencies Towards Globally-competitive Medical Technologists”, this event will focus on the enhancement of the competencies of medical technologists for many opportunities are available in the area of medical technology.

Cognizant of the dynamism of our profession, we zealously commit to strengthen our competencies to contribute greatly to our health care setting. With firm belief that increased competence can be an edge in whatever we plan to achieve in our chosen field, we will present series of topics which will pave the way for greater opportunities for every medical technologist.

In behalf of the officers, board of directors and members of PAMET SOCSKSARGEN Chapter and all medical technologists of Mindanao, I enjoin everyone to come and be part of this memorable occasion. Let us be proactive in our profession by taking responsibility over our learning as well as taking the chance to enjoy the sites, experience the hospitality of the people and taste the bounty of SOCSKSARGEN.

See you at the convention!
