Nueva Ecija’s 1st medical college opens
The first medical college in Nueva Ecija province is now open.
Retired judge Benjamin Turgano, president of Wesleyan University-Philippines (WU-P) in Cabanatuan City, announced the launch of WU-P’s College of Medicine, realizing a 10-year dream to offer medicine courses to students in Nueva Ecija.
According to a Punto Central Luzon report, WU-P’s College of Medicine is only the second medical college in Central Luzon, after Angeles University Foundation in Angeles City.
Turgano said the project to establish a college of medicine became possible with the support of the Paulino J. Garcia Memorial Research and Medical Center (PJGMRMC), a government-owned hospital.
“We have to do everything to ensure that the delivery of education here… is a quality education, that we gather the best faculty members to do this,” he said.
Faculty members came from institutions like Saint Louis University in Baguio City and Pamantasan ng Lungsod ng Maynila.
The school collaborated with university vice presidents in creating a faculty development plan for local professors in Nueva Ecija, said Dr. Lawrence de Guzman, medical director of WU-P Hospital.
