MARIANO MARCOS STATE U ALLOWED TO CONDUCT F2F CLINICAL CLERKSHIP
THE COMMISSION on Higher Education has allowed the Mariano Marcos State University to conduct limited face-to-face clinical clerkship program for students of its College of Medicine.
The Certificate of Authority given by CHED allowed the university to deploy medical students to hospitals and medical centers in the Second Semester of Academic Year 2020-2021.
“The certificate signifies that MMSU has complied with the requirements of CHED and Department of Health, under Joint Memorandum Circular No. 2021-001,” the MMSU said.
CHED officials earlier inspected and verified the school’s policies and procedures.
CHED Regional Office I Director Rogelio Galera Jr. handed the certificate to MMSU President Shirley Agrupis.
Vice President for Academic Affairs Prima Fe Franco, Vice President for Planning and Development Ami Ruth Cocson, Dean Ricardo Guanzon and other CHED officials witnessed the turnover.
MMSU is also seeking the approval of its other health allied programs to hold in-person laboratory classes.
“The CHED also assessed the preparedness of the College of Health Sciences in conducting limited face-to-face laboratory sessions among its nursing and physical therapy students,” the university said.
