CHED supports PBBM’s prioritization of healthcare system, building of specialty hospitals in regions

Announcement July 27, 2022


CHED is facilitating the production of the critical manpower for the President’s plan to build specialty hospitals all over the country.

These new medical and nursing programs will produce the additional doctors and nurses that will man these new hospitals four to five years from now,” said CHED Chairman Popoy De Vera.
