SUMMARY MISSION STATEMENT “T owards L eadership and Excellence in Com m unity-Oriented Medical Education Directed to the Underserved”. UPCM VISION The UPCM shall be: 1. A Center of Excellence for graduate medical education in the country; 2. A leading medical school in the ASEAN region; 3. A recognized medical institution in the global community. Committed to produce excellent and socially responsible doctors in the Philippines, especially in underserved areas.
The REGIONALIZATION PROGRAM Historical background The University of the Philippines Manila, College of Medicine (UPM -CM) and its teaching hospital, the Philippine General Hospital (PGH) are institutions that are heavily supported by the government. The Filipino tax payers subsidize the medical education of its students. In return, medical graduates of the UPM-CM must therefore perform a role that is relevant to national development in a way that its unique resources enable it, even mandate it to accomplish. In the past, majority of students admitted to the UPM-CM and who eventually graduated came from the National Capital Region (NCR) resulting in the inequitable distribution of medical graduates in the various regions of the country. The Admissions Committee of the College in 1979 under then, Dean Gloria Aragon took on the challenge to address this inequity by proposing the creation of the Regionalization Program. It was in 1984 under the term of Dean Alberto Romualdez when the Regionalization Program was approved by the College and the University System as a category for admission to the UPM-CM. The program was implemented the following school year of 1985-1986. Initially, only five regions were included in the program but this eventually involved every region of the country including the ARMM and the CAR. Even in it its inception, there was already a recommendation to formulate a contract with the recipients of the program that stipulates that the graduates will serve their regions for an equal number of years of their medical education. Failure to do so will mean that the graduates will reimburse the College the amount spent for their education.
Through the years, a social contract to serve the country was formulated and signed by the student and the College, but full compliance to the contract is yet to be achieved. In 2005, the Regionalization Program Committee (RPC) deemed it necessary to bind the students in the Program through a legal contract to serve his/her region for an equal number of years of his/her medical education. The Acceptance to Serve and Assumption of Liability Agreement (ASAL), a legally binding contract to serve the country was implemented beginning academic school year 2005-2006. Members of the Regionalization Program of the graduating Class 2010 are the first UPM-CM graduates under ASAL Agreement. 2
The SCHEME Regionalization is a ter m used in r efer ence to a scheme that would involve the acceptance of candidates from the various regions of the country deemed to be in need of doctors . These candidates will be the future leaders, experts and educators upon their return to these areas. Candidates for admission to the UP Manila College of Medicine should signify their intention to be considered for the Regionalization Program upon submission of their application form. The candidates will then be oriented with regard to the essence, goals and requirements of the program. Before acceptance to the Program, the applicant is required to sign a legally binding contract, signifying service to the Philippines, after graduation, with his/her parent(s)/guardian(s) as cosignatories.
