More than 300 people comprised of nurses, medical technologists and physicians including municipal health officers and other doctors from various parts of the country attended the successful 9th PSMID Midyear Convention held last July 5-6, 2012 at the Waterfront Cebu Hotel.

In the superhero-inspired convention, the topics included (but was not limited to the following):
