The group of Jess Netziel Belmonte, Bernadeth Josefa Borela, and Jester Galay was declared champion after the Master Your Mind 2020: 2nd Bicol Intercollegiate Health Sciences Quiz Contest organized by the Anatomy Teaching and Learning Academic Society (ATLAS) of Bicol University College of Medicine (BUCM) on February 22, 2020.

Geared by the theme “Intensifying Enthusiasm for Medical Knowledge through a Regional Intercollegiate Aptitude Test,” the biggest health sciences quiz contest in the region happened at the Ayala Malls Legazpi City and was participated by students all over Bicol from different levels taking up health sciences courses.

The academic quiz contest, spearheaded by ATLAS, the first duly-established college-based organization of BUCM, intends to promote, enhance, and instill awareness and appreciation on the importance and value of health science among the participants by displaying their aptitude through a healthy competition. Questions came from different areas of Gross Anatomy, Embryology, Histology, Physiology, and Biochemistry. Current medical trends were also tackled on the last part of the contest.

Moreover, ATLAS hopes that the event will be a venue for students to interact and create links with their future colleagues. The society also expects more dynamic and collaborative health sciences students who are competent and spirited to take on the challenge of becoming the future of our country’s health sector.

The CSPC student delegation was accompanied by its coaches, Ms. Abigail Monge, Ms. Eden Q. Paniterce, and Mr. Alvin Badong.
