Henry Sy, Sr. Hall Groun-breaking at UST Manila Campus

A ground-breaking ceremony took place at the UST Manila campus last October 7, 2023. This is for the 7-storey Henry Sy, Sr. Hall which will be for the UST Research and Endowment Foundation Inc., to help further level up the UST Faculty and Medicine and Surgery. 

The new building will serve as a hub for simulation in medical education, interactive student centered-learning, collaborative multidisciplinary research, and interprofessional education. It will also house the Sts. Cosmas and Damian Simulation and Research Center. 

"The Henry Sy, Sr. Hall will be a state-of-the-art structure designed to meet the challenges and expectations of a digitally-inclined medical education landscape. It will house technologically advanced facilities and equipment, which will complement the existing teaching, learning, and research practices of the University. It is yet another milestone, securing the UST FMS a relevant spot, a significant spot in Catholic medical education in the country, the region, and the world," said FMS Dean Dr. Ma. Lourdes Maglinao. 

"Medical students can access a broad range of digital tools and resources to enhance their learning and education as we were compelled to shift to e-learning and online course platforms," said Rev. Fr. Richard Ang, UST Rector. 

"Nowadays, keeping up with the advances in medical education is paramount to ensure that our students are competent, agile, and well-prepared to meet the challenges and opportunities of the ever-changing educational landscape of modern medicine, and this building, this edifice, will give us state-of-the-art equipment, which will give our medical students a cutting-edge knowledge on how to use robotics as well as other equipments."
