The Journey Towards the Jubilee Year in 2026

Aug 20, 2021

Every milestone must be celebrated and cherished as a way to give thanks to the Lord for His faithfulness. 45 years since the inception of the very first medical school in Mindanao, we continue on with our mission to ensure “Healthy Communities Enjoying Quality Life” while still being heralded as one of the nation’s top performing medical schools for the last several years.  This is a testament to God’s faithfulness over the Davao Medical School Foundation, Inc.

Last August, Davao Medical School Foundation, Inc. launched it’s journey towards the golden jubilee year in the year in 2026. From its humble beginnings in 1976 to the massive growth and expansion of the institution to the present day, we have truly been blessed.  From the very beginning It is only by faith that we are able to receive blessing after blessing from our Heavenly Father.

Sr. Florida Manzano, OP painted us a picture of how everything transpired in 1976 with her very own words:

 

We have no money,
we only have faith….

Now, 45 years later, even in the midst of a pandemic we will continue to walk by faith and not by sight.  We entrust the next 5 years and beyond to the palm of God’s hand knowing that where His leading will be, there His provision will be too.

We also would like to thank the pioneers, the members of the board of trustees, school administration, and staff for paving the way for members of our local community to have quality medical education within its reach.  We would like to acknowledge the efforts of all past and present key people of our institution for staying committed to the mission and vision imparted to us by our Lord 45 years ago.  By faith, with integrity, respect, and excellence we will continue to march forward with the same passion when our institution was first established – to keep the fire burning in our hearts and give all the glory and honor to our Most High God.
