More about Iligan Medical Center College

Iligan Medical Center College is a private, non-sectarian and non-political learning institution in Iligan City, Philippines.HistoryIn 1975, a group of five doctors recognized an inadequacy in experienced medical care and services in the Philippines. They noted that this was partly because of a lack of trained personnel who are committed to render service, especially in rural areas and the government’s slow delivery of such services to the general public.A careful assessment of the problem led them to consider contributing to the training of personnel and finally deciding to put up an institution that will provide skillful and committed workforce in line with the medical field. Having no experience or education to manage an educational institution, they ventured anyway but with intense commitment and prayer that this noble intention would some day help solve the country’s medical care and services problems. Thus, in June 1975, the Iligan Medical School of Nursing and Midwifery was born.Like any business venture in an unfamiliar field, the institution met rough encounters. In its maiden years, only 37 students enrolled in the College of Nursing. Two years later the Department of Midwifery followed suit. At the start, only one building served as school and dormitory. The first graduation was held in 1978.Strings of difficulties and problems started to crop up; soon afterward the incorporators thought of disbanding. Incidentally, the public involved, including the students, convinced them to hold on. Some interested parties, parents and friends were instrumental to alter the course of the school. A new leash in the life of the school was possible and survival was in the offing.In the succeeding years, survival was not the issue anymore — development and growth were the new long-term goals. With the relative growth of the paramedical courses, other allied courses were offered. To establish a far reaching impression, the name was changed to Iligan Medical Center College. The expansion of other paramedical courses was made possible with confidence and patronage of many parents and students and wider awareness of the competence of IMCC as an academic institution. The department of Physical Therapy, for example, was the first in the region.
