The Commission on Higher Education (CHED) has released the approval for PhD in Health Sciences by Research, Doctor of Dental Medicine and BS in Clinical Psychology.

The Doctor of Philosophy in Health Sciences by Research aims to develop a high level of competence among health professionals in carrying out independent health research for the advancement of science and practice of their specific discipline as well as the broader health sciences. It highlights inter-professional approach and evidence synthesis as essential elements for the advancement of health care practice and education. This is a higher degree program by research. Full-time students can finish the program in three years while part-time students can complete it in 4-5 years.

The Doctor of Dental Medicine program is a combination of Pre-Professional and Professional courses that covers the Basic Medical subjects initially followed by the professional subjects specializing in Dentistry.

The BS in Clinical Psychology program covers a wide range of professional education subjects that will equip future graduates in helping individuals with mental health problems and apply psychological principles in real-life situations. It is a four-year semestral undergraduate program that caters to mental health wellness, different therapeutic interventions to treat and diagnose psychological behaviors, and proper administration of psychological tests. It is designed for students who want to pursue their careers in educational institutions, industrial companies, and health care settings.
