1957: The UE College of Medicine Becomes UERMMMCI
On May 17, 1957, the University of the East College of Medicine was organized into a non-stock, non-profit organization. The founders were listed as UE President Francisco T. Dalupan Sr., Santiago F. Dela Cruz, Hermenegildo B. Reyes, Jose L. Torres, and Jaime Hernandez—the same five individuals who founded the University of the East 10 years earlier.
In June 1957, the UE College of Medicine was renamed the UE Ramon Magsaysay Memorial Medical Center Inc., in honor of the beloved Philippine President who perished in a plane crash in March 1957. President Magsaysay was UE’s first ever honorary degree recipient, with the University conferring upon him the degree Doctor of Laws, honoris causa, on January 25, 1957.
