UP MANILA (UP COLLEGE OF DENTISTRY) AND GWANGJU HEALTH UNIVERSITY (KOREA)

Wednesday, November 22, 2017


From the Philippine Star
November 21, 2017 issue
MANILA, Philippines — The University of the Philippines (UP) - Manila, the country’s premier state university, and Gwangju Health University (GHU), one of South Korea’s leading health universities, have signed an accord for the setup of a digitally enhanced dental technology laboratory and the exchange of faculty between them.

The Letter of Intent for Cooperation (LIC) signed last Oct. 20 at UP Manila signified the cooperation of the two institutions in seeking a grant from the Korean government for the construction and equipping of a digitally enhanced dental technology laboratory that will further enhance the training of UP College of Dentistry (UPCD) students.

UP Manila chancellor Carmencita Padilla and GHU president Myung Jin Chung led the signing of the agreement.

Padilla said the accord is significant and deep, fusing the technical knowhow and skills of both institutions, adding that “she looks forward to having GHU’s faculty at UP Manila and having our faculty in your university.”

In his remarks, Chung said their government’s assistance is a gesture of gratitude to reciprocate the Philippines’ help during the Korean War decades ago.

“It wasn’t long ago when Korea asked for help and the Philippines was willing to make a sacrifice. Gwangju Health University is proud to enter into (an) agreement today with UP Manila to promote the joint venture to construct a digital dental laboratory to enhance the curriculum at UPCD,” Chung said.

“I am here personally to show my commitment to this project and to meet some old friends for the first time.  GHU has a unique opportunity to share its specialized knowledge and skills to help further develop a leading university in health care. UPCD, a true world-class academic institution, has strong and impressive credentials in dentistry,” he added.

This development has set another milestone for UPCD as it strives to sustain its excellence in providing high quality education for the practice of dentistry as a health service profession.

The UP Manila College of Dentistry Dean Danilo L. Magtanong gives his message to the GHU Contingent.
