The Core Curriculum provides a foundation for using the multi-disciplinary approach in the study of health.

All the offerings in the undergraduate college years and the M&PH phase will revolve around three main areas:

• Medicine and the Individual – which refers to Clinical Medicine Training. Basic courses in Biology, Chemistry, Physics and Math will be taught in the pre-professional phase. Mentoring is an integral part of the program.
• Medicine and Population – which refers to the Public Health components of health and communities.
• Medicine and Society – which refers to the application of other disciplines in the Social Sciences, Humanities and Management to the area of health.

If at some point the student decides not to become a physician, the program has been designed to provide the necessary training for a graduate to pursue a career in the heath sector other than being a physician.

Mission/Vision


Doctors for the Future: Reshaping the Health Sector

Health defines life and its quality. It is also crucial in development of a nation. It is in this context that the Ateneo seeks to develop leaders who possess a broad and expanded view and understanding of the health sector. In preparation for this task, the BS Health Sciences (BS HSc) program was envisioned to be the pre-professional phase of the Ateneo School of Medicine and Public Health (ASMPH).


Objectives of the BS HSc Program
• To prepare and form students for their future roles as competent physicians, health care providers and managers.
• To provide students with a comprehensive understanding and orientation of health, based on concepts and application of skills derived from the study of various disciplines that influence the health sector.
• To develop among the students an appreciation and recognition that health is an important and vital component of development.
