Br Augustine (President), Br. Getachew (Academic Vice President), and Mr. Taye (MLT Department Head) paid a visit to De La Salle Medical & Health Science Institute and De La Salle University in Dasmarinas, the Philippines.
The main purpose of the visit was to establish a linkage between the three Lasallian Institutions based on the existing shared vision of providing high-quality Lasallian education and training to the young people in various areas of specializations. During the visit, a Memorandum of Understanding was signed for future partnerships which will help foster student exchange programs, experience sharing among academic and administrative staff. Thus, future linkages will be geared towards promoting academic excellence through research and program developments among the three institutions located in different continents.
De La Salle Medical and Health Sciences Institute, which was established in 1977, is a premier higher education, health care, and research institution in the Philippines that forms future medical and health professionals. Br. Getachew indicated that these three institutions will have a promising future for further collaboration.
