The University of the East Ramon Magsaysay Memorial Medical Center (UERMMMC) is a world-renowned training ground for the medical, nursing and physical therapy professions. As one of the leading health care facilities in the country today, it serves as a witness to the remarkable vision and foresight of its founders.

The UERM Memorial Medical Center believes in the development of the healers of tomorrow who are capable of being relevant, compassionate, and ethical in the practice of his profession. Thus, its graduates are imbued not only with technology but with the power to continue growing with a commitment to lifelong learning.

The University of the East Ramon Magsaysay Memorial Medical Center (UERMMMC) with its
Chairman of the Board of Trustees, Dr. Panfilo Domingo (left), signed an educational partnership
agreement with HCMI President, Mr. Singh, to promote the University’s Medical Programmes.

The centerpiece of the UERM Memorial Medical Center is the College of Medicine. From the time the UERM College of Medicine produced its first graduates, it immediately established itself as one of the finest medical schools in the country. Soon, it was acknowledged as one of the best three schools of medicine, mentioned in the same breath as University of the Philippines and University of Santo Tomas.

All the Medicine graduates of 1996 passed the Medical Licensure Examination given last February 1997. The Professional Regulation Commission awarded the Center a plaque in recognition of the feat, the fifth time for the center since 1993.

The College of Medicine provides a solid foundation for world-class medical education.

The College of Medicine offers more than the usual and conventional medical curriculum, giving its students a more solid foundation in the study of medicine. Creativity has always been a hallmark of the Center. It has enriched medical education through its integrated approach to the teaching of psychiatry and neuroscience; effective teaching methods to produce more appropriate physicians for the country, some of which were adopted by other medical schools.

The College of Medicine periodically reviews and upgrades its curriculum by instituting general changes such as the implementation of the core curriculum, granting of the M.D. degree after the Fourth year; upgrading of selected subjects; teaching by objectives; role-based curriculum and competencies; and integration of Primary Health Care in the curriculum.

Specific changes have also been installed in its search for relevance to the national and local health needs, as well as in keeping with international trends. It places more emphasis on science and art in the teaching of all courses, in order to produce graduates who shall internalize science and art and use them as the bases of medical practice. The curricular structure was made more flexible, allowing the student to participate in directing his learning and providing him adequate time for self-study and greater exposure to non-hospital settings of training.

The Information Technology Center and Cyber Library are equipped with vast sources of data for students’ dynamic learning. A number of computers with effective connections to the information superhighway are installed in the internet rooms managed by the staff of Management Information System Department. Interactive learning with the use of CD-ROM is installed in the cyber library.

Hence, developing their self-understanding and self-direction. Aside from a class adviser assigned to each year level, the Office has a highly-trained guidance counselor who provides guidance and counseling to students.
