The Manila Med, School of Medicine’s base teaching and training hospital, is a tertiary training institution accredited by the Department of Health, an ISO9011: 2008 certified institution since 2011, and PhilHealth accredited Center of Excellence in 2010; a rare distinction among tertiary private and government hospitals in the Philippines. It is competently manned by active and visiting consultants, who are well-respected in their various fields of expertise and committed to teaching both the students and resident trainees during bedside rounds and conferences In addition to this, the School of Medicine is also affiliated with other teaching and training hospitals like University of the Philippines – Philippine General Hospital (UP – PGH), Ospital ng Maynila Medical Center (OMMC), and the corporate-owned Emilio Aguinaldo College Medical Center – Cavite, which is strategically located in Dasmariñas, Cavite and that is best suited for community health-oriented programs. Community rotations in Pasay City, Metro Manila and selected government units in Cavite, through the Department of Family and Community Medicine, are also included to provide the students with a better exposure and learning experience to caring for the marginalised sectors of our society.
