    The Dean in Action

  • History

    Bicol University College of Medicine’s birth is a product of long and tedious planning, and its start experienced the usual “birthing pains” that provided its strong foundation.

    Dr. Faye Lea Patria M. Lauraya, 7th BU President, established the Bicol University College of Medicine with support from influential leaders and the Regional Development Council. Under her leadership, the curriculum was approved. Her determined efforts resulted in the college’s esteemed reputation and commitment to excellence in medical education.

    On September 3, 2012, the BU Board of Regents approved the proposal to open the College of Medicine. A week later, a three-person team of the CHED’s Technical Panel for Health Professional Education, Technical Committee on Medical Education, and Professional Regulation Commission visited BU and recommended that the medical school heed the world-wide call for transformative education to develop 7-star physicians.

    • The BUCM aspires to be the leader in transformative and integrative medical education. It seeks to develop doctors who are active agents of health systems transformation toward self-sustaining and resilient communities.

      1. To produce physicians with transformative qualities ready to serve the  local and global communities; 
      2. To undertake research that evolves measures and models of response to health issues and challenges sensitive to anthro-socio-medical realities in Bicol; and 
      3. To extend proactive services in health education, disaster preparedness, and environment sustainability  programs that will develop healthy  communities.

  • Programs

    The BUCM Program of College of Medicine is a 4-year program.  The First Year to Third Year of the program is bi-semestral.  The First semester usually begins in August and ends in December, while the second semester starts in January and ends in May.  Classes are conducted from Monday to Saturday.  

    The Fourth Year is the Medical Clerkship Program. It is a 12-month mandatory program for Year Level IV Medicine students of BUCM.  It is structured to provide maximum exposure to mandatory clinical areas such as Internal medicine, Surgery, Obstetrics and Gynecology, Pediatrics and Community Medicine, as well as minor subjects such as Psychiatry, Radiology, Otorhinolaryngology, Pathology and Anesthesia. 

    The unique features of the BUCM program are as follows: 

    • Problem-Based Learning

      It is an innovative strategy which is student centered in which students learn by working in groups to solve significant, contextualized, real world situations.  Students are provided guidance and instruction as they develop problem-solving skills. It represents a paradigm shift from traditional teaching which is lecture-based to an outcome-based education.

    • Hybrid Instruction

      The instruction and implementation of the curriculum are hybrid.  This approach combines mix in-person and online activities, traditionally conducted lectures with problem-based learning in small groups. 

    • Integrative Health systems oriented

      The program include   integrative health care courses from First to Third Year based on the principles of relationship-centered care integrating conventional and evidence-based complementary modalities for the prevention and treatment of illnesses, believing in the innate healing capacity of individuals, engaging body/mind/spirit, and maintaining that healing is always possible even when curing is not. The aim is transformation in healthcare: from a purely biomedical to a more holistic medicine. This is also aligned to the World Federation of Medical Education’s advocacy for traditional, unorthodox and alternative medicine.

    • Community Health Programs

      Community health courses are in every semester from Year I to Year IV.  This is strengthened by conduct of community immersion every year where students take part in the transformation of local barangays from community-oriented (Health to the People) to community – based (Health with the People), and to community-managed (Health by the People) barangays.

    • Scholarship and Return Service

      Students are trained to give back after their medical education to their locality.  The “Return Service Agreement” is a requirement for all students admitted in BUCM which entails that they have to give service in the Philippines for a minimum of 2 years.  On top of this, medical students of BUCM are also eligible to apply for the Medical Scholarship Return Service Program of the government which provides support for students from first year until internship.

  • The Mapalad Program

    One of the most important achievements of the Bicol University College of Medicine in CY 2022 and in this first quarter of 2023, aside from garnering a very high percentage in the passing rate of those who have taken the Physician Licensure Examination, is the approval of the MaPaLad (Medisina Para sa Lahat Dapat) program. 

    The MaPaLaD program is a two-edged project because it aims to achieve two of the basic rights of the Filipino people: the first is equitable access to education; the second is equal access to health services. This program aims to produce highly competitive Bicolano medical doctors on par with the best doctors in modern countries in the world who can provide the best services to the Bicolanos in terms of their health and medical needs. 

    This is to solve the scarcity of medical doctors in the Bicol Region and even throughout the country. At present, there are only 28.8 thousand doctors in the Philippines, with a ratio of 3.7 per 10,000 population. This figure falls short of one doctor per 1,000 population (1:1,000) prescribed by the Department of Health (DOH).   In providing health care and medical services to the people, BUCM adheres to the government’s policy of promoting equality.

    It assures equal opportunity for every individual to receive adequate medical and healthcare services, regardless of their status in life. The provision of proper health education to the people makes them well prepared for the onset of a pandemic; it makes them aware of the necessary measures to avoid contamination.

    II. Extension

    Bicol University’s extension services play a crucial role in fulfilling the institution’s mandate as an educational and research institution. Extension, alongside instruction and research, form some of the three main mandates of Bicol University. The concept of extension at Bicol University encompasses the systematic transfer of technology, innovation, and information generated by the university and its partners to address specific developmental concerns. It is a purpose-specific, target-specific, and need-specific program of action that aims to leverage the best available data, science, and evidence from various disciplines to inform systematic approaches to developmental solutions.

    The university is expected to collaborate with communities, businesses, and industries to facilitate the transfer of knowledge or technology in areas that directly affect the lives of individuals, families, and communities. This collaborative effort serves to initiate, catalyze, and sustain the development of various communities while considering their experiences and available resources. By doing so, the extension services enable the university to contribute to the improvement of production, community, institutions, and overall quality of life while enhancing its academic and research programs.

    Moreover, the essence of community existence is recognized, and the university acknowledges the interconnectedness and interdependence between the success and development of both the university and the community. As such, it becomes imperative for the university to establish collaborative partnerships to ensure the overall development of the region and the country as a whole.
