UPHS-PDP holds groundbreaking rites for new campus

The University of Perpetual Health System–Pueblo de Panay (UPHS–PDP) held a groundbreaking ceremony for its new campus recently at Pueblo de Panay Township in Roxas City, Capiz.

The new campus was a product of the partnership between Pueblo de Panay Inc., owner and developer of 670-hectare Pueblo de Panay Township, and University of Perpetual Health System JONELTA, which operates six other UPHS campuses in the country.

UPHS-PDP started its operations in July 2019 with senior high school and college departments with degree programs in dentistry, medical laboratory science, radiologic technology, pharmacy, physical therapy, and entertainment and multimedia computing.

Just this Academic Year 2021- 2022, the university started accepting enrollees in junior high school and grade school. This project has opened the doors to high quality education and has made accessible other degree programs previously locally unavailable, especially in the allied medical sciences.

Along with other JONELTA campuses, UPHS-PDP had been using an E-Learning platform, which is also a first in Roxas City.

When the Covid-19 pandemic struck, this platform made distance learning easier as all materials, exams, and activities are available 24/7.

Like other JONELTA campuses, UPHS-PDP plans to expand the courses offered: marine engineering, marine transportation, programs within the business spectrum, information technology, and other health allied courses like nursing and medicine. It also aims to increase accessibility by undergoing certification and forging partnerships with the LGUs, NGOs, and private individuals for scholarship grants.*


New campus  of the University of Perpetual Health System will rise soon at Pueblo de Panay Township in Roxas City, Capiz.
