  • Dr. Thane Oke Kyaw Myint (SPHS60) was the top Paulian in his class, but the Brothers were disappointed when he missed the top five positions by a mark each. He founded the group “Alumni of the Institute of Medicine in Myanmar (Overseas)” and wrote about his mentors and other trail blazers.
  • Dr. Kyaw Win (Robin Ban, SPHS61) stood 2nd in Burma.
