In preparation for their application for the Certificate of Program Compliance (COPC) and refer document proposals, the University of Rizal System (URS) held a benchmarking activity to the Bicol University Graduate School (BUGS) – Open University (OU) and College of Medicine (CM) on September 20, 2022.
As one of the institutions awarded the COPC by the Commission on Higher Education (CHED), BUGS-OU revealed their best practices on how they ensured compliance with the certification requirements and the preparation of the required paperwork for the application.
With this opportunity, URS also visited BUCM to assess the university’s readiness for CHED’s issuing of the Permit to Operate the Doctor of Medicine program. They made BU as a point of reference in drafting documentation in an effort to provide the similar program in URS for the next academic year. | by Arnold C. Noda, CPRO
