College of Medicine

  • 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 through 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 and 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.
