International School of Medicine
The Emilio Aguinaldo College School of Medicine was founded and established by Dr. Paulo C. Campos, a National Scientist in Nuclear Medicine. It was formally opened on July 23, 2001 with 24 enrollees. Dr. Salvador R. Salceda, an ophthalmologist, became the first Dean (2001-2003), followed by a gastroenterologist, Dr. Esteban P. Pineda (2003-2010), and a surgical oncologist, Dr. Conrado C. Cajucom (2010-2013). The fourth and present Dean is Dr. Asuncion L. Abaya-Morido, a general surgeon and the former Hospital Director of Medical Center Manila, now known as the Manila Med.
Our founder envisioned the School of Medicine to be an outstanding institution for medical education and health research. As such, the School shall provide an education and scientific environment that prepares the students to become professionally competent, socially-relevant and compassionate physicians with a strong commitment to lifelong learning. It is also committed to undertake relevant reforms on medical education in response to changing national and global health needs and scenarios, as well as newly generated medical information.
The School of Medicine is staffed by dedicated, respected and competent academicians, as well as clinicians who are well-known in their fields of specialty. It implements an outcome-based, synchronized curriculum, with early clinical integration and emphasis on interactive learning process. It also boasts of well-equipped classrooms, basic science and skills laboratories and a library.
In the past, classrooms, laboratory facilities and offices were all confined at the 9th floor of Building 7, and Building 5. But due to the growing population of both medical students and faculty members, expansion to the EAC Building 7, 10th floor became necessary.
The Manila Med, School of Medicine's base teaching and training hospital, is a tertiary training institution accredited by the Department of Health, an ISO9011: 2008 certified institution since 2011, and PhilHealth accredited Center of Excellence in 2010; a rare distinction among tertiary private and government hospitals in the Philippines. It is competently manned by active and visiting consultants, who are well-respected in their various fields of expertise and committed to teaching both the students and resident trainees during bed-side rounds and conferences In addition to this, the School of Medicine is also affiliated with other teaching and training hospitals like University of the Philippines - Philippine General Hospital (UP - PGH), Ospital ng Maynila Medical Center (OMMC), and the corporate-owned Emilio Aguinaldo College Medical Center - Cavite, which is strategically located in Dasmarinas, Cavite and that is best suited for community health-oriented programs. Community rotations in Pasay City, Metro Manila and selected government units in Cavite, through the Department of Family and Community Medicine, are also included to provide the students a better exposure and learning experience to caring for the marginalized sectors of our society.
The Emilio Aguinaldo College - School of Medicine is an active member of the Association of Philippine Medical Colleges Foundation, Inc. (APMCFI) and has been granted the Government Recognition by the Commission on Higher Education (CHED).
