Pray Alumni that as You read word for word of what I have written that it is for a Beloved Alma mater

The UP College of Medicine began as the Philippine Medical School?. It was built in 1905 at the former Malecon Drive (now Bonifacio Drive). In 1910, it was integrated as one of the colleges into the?University of the Philippinesand was renamed to U.P. College of Medicine and Surgery. The name was later shortened to the University of the Philippines College of Medicine. Its first Dean was Dr. Paul Freer, while Dr. Fernando Calderon, an alumnus of the University of Santo Tomas Faculty of Medicine and Surgery, became the first Filipino Dean of the College.

The?Calderon Hall?is currently the main building of UP College of Medicine students.
The Fernando Calderon Hall is the main building of UP College of Medicine students. Named after the first Filipino dean of the college, the building was transferred from Bonifacio Drive to its current location in Pedro Gil Street, Manila in 1910.[2]

The Calderon Hall and the University of the Philippines College of Medicine was the only UP unit that was open and functioning during the height of the Second World War, to provide medical services needed during that time. After the War, the building was rehabilitated in 1951 under the leadership of Dr. Agerico Sison.
It is unknown to me when the Basic Science Lecture Rooms were built but after serving for so many years groundbreaking for a new Academic Center occurred on April 11, 2016.

UPMASA has committed to fund the First Floor Auditorium. UPMASA committed to ensure that Medicine is taught in facilities conducive to the education of the Filipino Physician in the modern world.

Many alumni have supported . It is my great expectation that every Alumni share a legacy of being part of a new edifice to enshrine a connection to a beloved Alma Mater. Every cent or centavo will count.
