Our Lady Of Fathima
College of Medicine
The OLFU College of Medicine is one of the Philippine’s most distinguished centers for medical education. Constantly responding to the rapid changes in science, technology and the social environment, OLFU fulfills its commitment to produce competence, world-class medical practitioners. It strives to create the best environment for students to master the principles and theories of medicine and obtain sufficient knowledge and experience to launch into a successful practice.
It’s the first and only Philippine medical school to have an institutional clerkship program with a foreign hospital. In fact, the University has sent over 100 medical students for clerkship training at the Brooklyn Medical Center and Peninsula Hospital in New York and Jackson Park Hospital in Chicago. Thus, creating career opportunities abroad for young men and women.
In its almost more than 40 years of existence, OLFU has graduated more than 70,000 medical and allied medical health practitioners from all disciplines. Proof that makes OLFU a valuable contributor in the development of the medical and paramedical professions in the Philippines and abroad.
The OLFU College of Medicine is housed in five buildings where you’ll find the school’s lecture halls, seminar and conference rooms, research and teaching laboratories, classrooms, amphitheater, library facilities with audio-visual monitors, and administrative offices of the departments.
The hospital became a primary provider of medical services to the residents of Valenzuela and its neighbouring towns. With a vision of creating a medical complex that will be a training center for competent health care providers, Mr. Olivares created the Fatima Medical Science Foundation Inc. and initially established the Our Lady of Fatima College of Nursing in 1973. More curricular programs were added in the 1970s including courses in Midwifery, Chemistry, and Veterinary Medicine. From the 1980s through the 1990s the country witnessed the development of OLFU with the inclusion of other courses and programs such as Physical Therapy, Hotel & Restaurant Management, Computer Studies, Maritime Education and Criminology.
Officially accredited by the Commission on Higher Education, Philippines, OLFU annually enrolls over-45,000 students. The university offers high education degrees such as undergraduate certificates/diplomas, associate degrees, bachelor degrees, master degrees, doctorate degrees in several areas of study.
