Located in Palo, Leyte, the School of Health Sciences was created in the mid-1970s. Its step-ladder curriculum was approved in 1976. The step-ladder curriculum is in three parts: obtaining a midwifery certificate, a nursing degree, and a medical degree. It was established as a response to growing concerns that students are lacking in social consciousness and commitment to community service.
