College of Medicine and Allied Medical Professions
The La Consolacion University Philippines College of Medicine was established in June 2017 after granted a permit to operate by CHED. Headed by Dean Ma. Cristina E. Zulueta, faculty from different established medical schools from Manila taught the pioneer batch for academic year 2017-2018. Upon its establishment, facilities and laboratory equipment have been ensured to be at par with other established medical schools. It is also a member of the Association of Philippine Medical Colleges Foundation Incorporated. With a strong collaborative support from the local government, students have their clinical exposure at Bulacan Medical Center, a Department of Health Level III Accredited Hospital Facility.
Consistent on its offering of quality medical education, the College is now on its fourth year with a stronger faculty roster who are highly qualified and known with their respective fields of specialties.
The curriculum follows that of the Outcome Based Education Strategy as mandated by CHED. While ensuring clinical competence and unique to the curriculum of LCUP COM, the students are developed holistically to be “doctors with a heart” on a course called: Applied Augustinian Philosophy in the Practice of Medicine.
An LCUP COM graduate is envisioned to be competent, empathetic, holistically trained to manage patients both in the community and hospital setting rendering humble and generous service.
La Consolacion University Philippines (LCUP) envisions the College of Medicine to be a medical school that is known for the excellence of teaching, research and service. We will train our students to be competent, empathetic physicians or health professionals for the medically underserved communities and populations. In addition, the College of Medicine will be an exemplar in eliminating health disparities and in finding solutions through research and public health programs for medical problems found especially in marginalized communities of the indigenous people of Luzon.
The College of Medicine will provide students of high academic potential with a medical education of exceptional quality and will prepare physicians and other health care professionals to serve the underprivileged. Particular focus is on the education of disadvantaged students for careers in medicine. Special attention is directed to teaching and research activities that address tropical diseases in Asia.
The College also seeks to improve the health of Filipinos and the global community through public health training programs and initiatives. Our mission also includes the discovery of new knowledge through research. Furthermore, the College supports the education and training of postgraduate physicians, other health care providers, and graduate students in the biochemical sciences.
