Cagayan State University (CSU)

 Study Mbbs in Cagayan State University

The Cagayan State University (CSU) is the largest state institution of higher learning in the Cagayan Valley Region, in terms of enrollment and number of curricular program offerings. The University was established through Presidential Decree 1436, later amended by Republic Act 8292 by the integration of all publicly supported higher education institutions in the province of Cagayan.

The university is composed of eight(8) campuses in the growth areas in the three congressional districts of Cagayan; the Aparri, Lal-Lo and Gonzaga campuses in the 1st District; the Piat, Lasam and Sanchez-Miracampuses in the 2nd District; and in the 3rd District, the Andrews and Carig campuses in Tuguegarao City. Each campus is headed by an Executive Officer (CEO) except in Andrews Campus where the University Presidentconcurrently acts as the CEO. The seat of governance of the university is at the Andrews Campus, where the central administration holds office.

In March 2012, Dr. Romeo R. Quilang, former President of the Isabela State University (ISU), was elected by the CSU Board of Regents to serve as the CSU System's fourth president.

The governance of the University is vested in the Board of Regents of the Cagayan State University (or Lupon ng mga Rehente in Filipino) and commonly abbreviated as BOR. The board, with its 12 members, is the highest decision-making body of the CSU system.

A Commissioner of the Commission on Higher Education (CHED) serves as the Board's Chairperson while the President of the Cagayan State University is the Vice-Chairperson. The Chairpersons of the Committees of Higher Education of the Senate and the House of Representatives are members of the CSU Board of Regents which are concurrent with their functions as committee chairpersons. The President of the University Student Government also serves as Student Regent. While the Faculty Regent is likewise nominated by the faculty members of the whole University. Alumni are represented by the President of the CSU Alumni Association. Two members of the Board come from the private sector.


On April 1- 4, 1979, the First Academic Council Work - Conference was conducted in Aparri Institute of Technology (ATI). The council designed the following policies: curricula for various courses; proposed courses to be offered in each unit; policies on recruitment, employment and promotion of faculty; guidelines for faculty benefits, rules on discipline and leaves; guidelines on faculty load and faculty development; requirements for admission and scholarship of students, research and extension programs.

At present there are seven campuses under the university system. CSU- Caritan and CSU Carig were merged under one nomenclature, CSU- Tuguegarao. All campuses continue to operate as complementary satellites of the University. Although difficult at times, the unique arrangement of a multi-campus institution, which has prevailed over an ideal compa ct-university being located in one site, is succeeding in terms of providing educational access and equity to its rural communities. On the other hand, owing to the peculiarities of the geographical diversity and multi-ethnicity of its people and socio-economic, educational and political conditions obtaining in its catchment’s areas, the CSU institutional structures and arrangement are functioning well.

  Students from India after class 12 first enrol in a Pre-medical course for 8-10 months before they are eligible to be admitted to the 4 year medical course. Students with a Bachelors Degree can be admitted directly to MD course.

  The four-year medical course progresses from the study of the normal to the abnormal human being. Most subjects are yearly courses taken up for two semesters.

  The first year covers the normal Human Anatomy, Biochemistry, Physiology, Preventive Medicine & Community health, Psychiatry and Medical Practice I. Class lectures are delivered mostly through computers using LCD projectors complemented by slide/ film showing, laboratory work and group discussions. Pedagogy and Bioethics are incorporated in Principles of Medical Practice I. An introduction to Medical Informatics is incorporated in Preventive Medicine and Community Health before the biostatistics session. Problem-based learning is gradually introduces in certain topics in Biochemistry and Physiology.

  The second year deals with Pathology, Microbiology, Parasitology, Pharmacology, Preventive Medicine and Community Health, Psychiatry II and Medical Economics plus introductory courses in clinical subjects. In small groups, students begin to meet patients in actual hospital setting where they are introduced to history taking and physical examination.

  The third year involves didactic lectures on common diseases encountered in clinical practice as well as interesting or rare conditions. Pathophysiology is reviewed while clinical features, diagnostic approaches and principles of management are emphasized.

  The fourth year or clinical clerkship is mainly spent in actual patient care with 3 affiliated Hospitals serving as the clinical laboratory. Hospital rounds and group discussions give the student a good perspective on bedside manners, diagnosis and management. The clerks rotate through the different clinical departments for 48 weeks with periodic evaluation. The University has arrangement with Govt. Hospitals and the AFP Hospital for Clerkship.

A. Lectures

  During the lectures, important concepts and principles are explained utilizing material in clinical contexts, and providing a sense of direction in which a field is moving. All core lectures are accompanied by reading assignments, which are taken from recommended textbooks, or from other references that may be cited by the lecturer. If new core material is introduced in the lecture that is not covered in the assigned readings, supplemental handouts will be provided.

  The lectures do not present all the material covered but instead focus on explaining difficult aspects of the subjects, or demonstrating how the core information is used in scientific inquiry and medical decision making.

B. Laboratory

  The laboratory activities are packaged into modules which the students may accomplish at their own pace with faculty supervision. The students may be allowed to go back to the laboratory after class hours for independent study with prior notice to the department concerned.

C. Plenary Discussions

  Clinical cases, community experiences or experiments are discussed in a plenary session in an interactive manner to stimulate critical thinking. Recitation in class is encouraged to develop the students' confidence in speaking in a large group as is the case in most medical conferences.

D. Small Group Discussions

  These sessions provide an opportunity for students and faculty to interact in small groups at which time critical thinking is stressed and application of the core material to clinical medicine or research is emphasized. These sessions are used to facilitate learning during actual patient encounters, clinical case discussions or journal clubs.
