PAMANTASAN ng Lungsod ng Maynila (PLM) received approval from the Commission on Higher Education (CHEd) to conduct limited face-to-face classes for medical and health allied programs in the university.
Last April, officials from CHEd assessed the school’s preparedness and observance of minimum public health standards and its compliance with CHEd’s guidelines.
“We thank CHEd for allowing our medical students to return to hands-on learning. This will definitely help PLM do its part in reinforcing the health care frontlines and ensure that our future doctors and nurses will be equipped with the proper training as they join our brave health workers in healing fellow Filipinos,” said PLM President Emmanuel Leyco.
CHEd Chairman Prospero de Vera 3rd visited the Bicol University, College of Medicine for campus inspection.
“I will continue to go around other (HEIs), this year particularly … as we go around, we will do activities simultaneously, it will be very efficient,” said De Vera.
In total, 62 HEIs have been approved to conduct limited face-to-face classes.
This came after the Inter-Agency Task Force for the Management of Emerging Infectious Diseases (IATF-MEID) gave authority to colleges and universities to hold limited face-to-face classes.
