PHILIPPINE Women’s University alumna Frauline Kathleen Ortiana Galace placed 4th overall in the Professional Regulation Commission (PRC) Pharmacist Licensure Examinations given this month. She obtained a rating of 90.27%.

Out of 1,870 examinees, only 678 passed.

Since 2020, three PWU alumni have been topnotchers in PRC board examinations. In February 2021, PWU’s Philippine School of Social Work alumnus Jefferson Piñon Medrano garnered the seventh place in the Social Worker Licensure Examination with a rating of 81.40%. In July 2021, the PWU-School of Nursing, Haydee Soriano Bacani, emerged as the top 1 in the Nurse Licensure Examination with a rating of 89.40%.

Aside from Galace, seven other PWU alumni successfully hurdled the pharmacist board exams: Leonardo Isaac A. Almero, Hosanna Joy De Mesa, Omelyn T. Gonzales, Jhanela Jhane G. Malate, Chenry Joie M. Pajarin, Ameerah T. Racman, and Marcelina P. Rillo.

In a memorandum announcing the feat of the PWU alumni, PWU President Marco Alfredo M. Benitez commended the School of Pharmacy, Program Chair Mark Harvey Adamson, the faculty and staff “whose efforts in teaching, mentoring, and guiding the students have paid off spectacularly.”

The Philippine Women’s University is a 103-year-old university located on Taft Avenue.
