Medical interns traded their scalpels and scrubs for dancing shoes and vampy outfits during a night of fun, entertainment and sharing knowledge at Pharex HealthCorp's Grand Interns Night held recently at the Le Pavillon.
"This celebration gives our interns the opportunity not only to have fun but also to empower themselves as future doctors, as Pharex is committed to educate, enlighten and guide our young interns to become our good partners in providing better healthcare for Filipinos," said Tomas Marcelo Agana III, president and chief executive officer of Pharex HealthCorp.

Pharex made the gathering even more exciting with a New Moon-themed party, which had them dressing up in fashionable vampire costumes. The venue mirrored the "vampirific" mood of the occasion, with its dark and mysterious ambiance, highlighted by a big crescent moon on center stage, which set the mood for a fabulous, fun-filled night.
Hosted by Y Speak's Bianca Gonzalez, TJ Manotoc, Atom Araullo, Mo Twister, and Xian Lim, the event opened with a dance medley of Michael Jackson's famous hits by ASAP '09s dance floor jock Gab Valenciano. Guests were also entertained by exciting performances by Kapamilya stars Jon Avila, Wendy Valdez, Cass Ponti, Niña Dolino, and Duncan Ramos, plus a special musical number from Sandwich.
Highlighting the event was the search for Alternative Pinoy Stars, where teams from the Philippine General Hospital, Chinese General Hospital, University of Perpetual Help-Biñan, AFP-V. Luna Memorial Hospital, Fort Bonifacio General Hospital, Medical City, Ospital ng Maynila, Far Eastern University, De La Salle University Cavite, and the Department of Health battled it out to showcase out-of-the-box performances.

Select interns also competed in alternative mini-debates, where they tried to outwit one another in wacky vampire-themed topics. Special awards and prizes were also given away to Early Pack of Wolves, the first group of 10 to arrive at the event; the Male and Female Stars of the Night; and the winners of the Team Chant contest, supporters and fans with the most unique and alternative chants.
