Mu Sigma Phi Sorority

The first medical sorority in the Philippines and in Asia.
An unbroken line of over a thousand lady doctors from the University of the Philippines Manila.


Apol Palma Valparaiso, μΣΦ '06

Surgeons are artists dazzled by each case presented to them unto the operating table. With every incision they make, they venture into the human body in search of the root of the problem, fix it to make people better, and hopefully, let them live better. There are plenty of calculated risks and there are no shortcuts. More than will power, a subconscious habit of success and extreme patience are needed in the course of every operation. These statements somewhat describe Apol’s current life as a surgeon and her ideals even before she entered the UP College of Medicine.

Aurora Salegumba-Genuino, μΣΦ '57

Dr. Aurora Salegumba-Genuino is a pediatrician-neonatologist, professor, researcher, inspirational speaker and volunteer worker based in Manila. Despite assuming all these roles, she has been married to an equally accomplished anesthesiologist with whom she actively raised five children who grew up to be successful physician-specialists themselves.

Perla D. Santos-Ocampo, μΣΦ '55

In the world of medicine, the acronym PSO is enough to star-struck anyone. Dr. Perla D. Santos Ocampo, or PSO for short, is an excellent clinician, a prolific writer and researcher, an inspiring teacher, a trailblazing leader, a children’s health advocate but above all, a dedicated and loving mother.

Geraldine Victoria Q. Gomez-Pinder, μΣΦ ‘71

She’s that name every sis knows and encounters everyday, her words flowing through invisible wires and reaching us on cold screens, her passion palpable despite the miles between. Meet Sis Gerry Gomez-Pinder. With sharing her story her enthusiasm is no different from the sis seated beside you—it’s just like sitting with her right here in the Hut.
