Sunflowers were abloom last July 29, 2017 as a nod to Simbuyo: The 108th Commencement Exercises and Internship Closing Ceremonies of the UP College of Medicine-Philippine General Hospital at the University Theater, UP Diliman. Countless people, from the faculty and administration to the families and friends of the graduates, came to witness the ceremonial cloaking of the members of UPCM Class 2017 and the post-graduate interns. In attendance was the celebrant, sir Ambeth Ocampo, who delivered a thought-provoking speech on Jose Rizal as a physician for the Filipino people.
