Ms. Sumulong is an associate professor from the College of Pharmacy, De La Salle Medical and Health Sciences Institute. She is a pharmacist by profession with a Master of Science in Chemistry. Her experience and expertise in clinical pharmacy led her in seeing the importance of role identity and patient safety in healthcare delivery through interprofessional education and practice. She is one of the few Filipinos who was formally trained in IPE from the Gunma University (Japan), WHO-CC for Interprofessional Education Research and Training (2015). Currently doing her PhD in curriculum and instruction, she aims to utilize her IPE knowledge to continually develop and conduct IPE-focused trainings for health science educators and students as one way to solidify the PHIPEC Network which she co-founded in 2018.
