The Western Mindanao State University (WMSU) has bared plans to open its School of Medicine by school year 2019-2020 to cater to students interested in pursuing a medical degree.

WMSU President Dr. Milabel E. Ho said in an interview that WMSU is currently preparing all the requirements to be submitted to the Commission on Higher Education (CHED).

The feasibility study on the establishment of the university’s School of Medicine was already completed.

The curriculum for the program has likewise been prepared for the CHED’s evaluation.

This will give a chance for indigent students to study medicine as the program will be offered by a state university.

At present, the city only has one school offering medicine, the Ateneo de Zamboanga University (ADZU) School  of Medicine. (RGAAGo)
