About Angeles University Foundation School of Medicine

Mission Statement

The School of Medicine is committed to promote quality and relevant medical education, thereby producing quality and compassionate medical practitioners with a social conscience, dedicated to the service of God and humanity.

Philosophy and goals

Medical education in the Philippines continues to be charged with being so hospital-oriented that it has failed to produce physicians who are responsive to the needs of the country. Instead, its products, being tailor-made for practice in the developed countries, easily leave the country. Moreover, the cost of medical education has become so prohibitive that admission to medical school is almost limited to the elite.

The Angeles University Foundation established the medical school, which is university-based, community-oriented, and committed to develop broadly educated physicians.

The School of Medicine has the following objectives:

  • To prepare the students to practice medicine in the service of God and humanity;
  • To instill within the students the human qualities of dedication to duty, kindness, patience, tolerance, and compassion;
  • To encourage and maintain awareness of the social and economic conditions of the country and of the world at large;
  • To equip the students with adequate knowledge of and skills in the basic medical sciences, the clinical disciplines, and preventive medicine;
  • To inspire the students to keep abreast with new developments, innovations and researches in the field of medicine; and
  • To motivate the students to pursue expanded expertise in their field of specialization.

With the School of Medicine, the College of Nursing, the College of Allied Medical Professions and the Medical Library as the constituent units, the AUF Medical Center, which is education, service, and research-oriented, aims to:

  • provide
    • undergraduate and postgraduate medical education to qualified students, especially in Region III, who will form a pool that will provide the medical manpower needs of the region;
    • continuing medical education to update medical practitioners in the region on advances in medical science and practice;
  • provide not only secondary and tertiary medical care services to the region but also, through its community extensions, primary medical care;
  • contribute to the advancement of medical knowledge and its effective delivery through research.
