Student Activities


Inter-house competitions

The UPH, Faculty of Medicine students developed the concept of  “Houses” for the student body with the aim of foster a positive development of students academically, socially, spiritually and as individuals. It also provides a foundation to develop leadership, team building and a sense of belonging. This is a new program initiated by the senate of  the year 2008 with the  vision of leaving  a legacy for the younger generation of Medical students. So they will carry the torch of teamwork, leadership, fellowship and a competitive spirit.



The students of the Faculty were randomly selected into four groups/ houses. The house names were selected by senate and mandated to remain. Each house will be lead by a house captain and be supervised by a suitably selected Faculty member. The competitions cover academic, social and sporting events. The houses are Hermes (Green), Claudius (Yellow), Asclepius ( Blue) and Xavier ( Red) all representing healing and restoration of life in the medical world.
