International recognition is a cornerstone of De La Salle Health Sciences Institute’s vision to be a world class, God-centered health institution committed to achieving the highest quality of life and equity in health for our people.


DLSHSI is a step closer towards this mission with the recognition of the Medical Board of California for its College of Medicine. DLSHSI received the notice of certification on July 6 this year.


This recognition means that DLSHSI’s College of Medicine graduates are now eligible to apply for a California Postgraduate Training Authorization Letter or a Physician’s and Surgeon’s Certificate, a requirement for starting residency training in the state of Califonia. This recognition also entitles DLSHSI to be included in the list of recognized medical schools on the Medical Board of California website.
