In upholding its tradition as a Catholic educational institution committed to the Christian formation of the Filipino youth as its service to the Church, the Philippine society, and the world, San Beda College established its fifth unit in 2002, the College of Medicine. With its vision of providing holistic medical education, it aims to develop competent primary care physicians who are committed to the service of people and communities, who will be leaders in service, training and research. The formation of The Bedan Physician is accomplished through disciplined, reflective, collaborative, and service-oriented learning experience in the classrooms, laboratories, hospitals, and the community, that will promote the development of the biomedicalknowledge base, as well as the relevant professional skills and attitudes. Guided by the ministry of the Divine Healer, the learners shall be moulded into transformative agents who will become responsible and responsive stewards of health, of individuals and of society.
San Beda College of Medicine offers a 4-year MD program designed according to the Commission of Higher Education’s Outcome-Based Medical Education model. The medical curriculum develops a strong foundation in the basic medical sciences leading to effective clinical reasoning and decision-making. Medical students engage in a wide variety of learning activities where they are actively applying evidence-based biomedical knowledge, as well as honing their skills in providing up-to-date, relevant health care. The Bedan Medical Education amply provides opportunities to grow as expert clinicians, proficient professionals, and compassionate health care providers.
