The Philippine Association of Medical Technologists (PAMET) is the national organization of all registered Medical Technologists in the Philippines.

The association was organized by Mr. Crisanto G. Almario, recognized as the “Father of PAMET,” who sought to standardize the profession and improve and upgrade the practice. After the initial pre-organizational planning and conceptualization, PAMET was born on September 15, 1963 at the Public Health Laboratory at 208 Quiricada St., Sta. Cruz, Manila.

Through the efforts of PAMET under its president, Charlemagne T. Tamondong, Republic Act No. 5527, otherwise known as the “Philippine Medical Technology Act,” was enacted on June 21, 1969.

PAMET was registered with the Securities and Exchange Commission on October 14, 1969 and was accredited by the PRC as the professional organization of medical technologists on July 15, 1975. PAMET was registered with the International Association of Medical Laboratory Technologists (IAMLT) in 1970 and gained membership in the ASEAN Association of Medical Laboratory Technologists (AAMLT) in 1985.

PAMET hosted the 2nd ASEAN in Medical Laboratory Technologists (ACMLT) in Manila in 1986 where the AAMLT Constitution and By-laws were adopted. In 1989, during the 3rd ACMLT in Singapore, Carmencita Acedera was elected to the AAMLT presidency. PAMET hosted the 7th ACMLT, which was held at PICC on December 1-6, 1997. During the 8th ACMLT in Brunei Darussalam, PAMET President Norma Chang was elected President of AAMLT from September 1999 to year 2002.
