UDM to resume F2F classes for nursing, physical therapy classes
The Universidad de Manila has been granted to conduct face-to-face classes for Nursing and Physical Therapy classes.
This after the university passed the inspection conducted by the Commission on Higher Education (CHED) on Wednesday, November 17.
UDM President Felma Carlos-Tria said that face-to-face classes will resume starting Thursday, November 18, as it pledged to provide quality education without comprising the health of its students.
"We look forward to welcoming our Nursing and PT students back to a safe campus. Although these are the first two courses that will go on limited face to face, we are already preparing the facilities for our other programs as well," President Tria said.
"All our efforts are geared towards giving Merlions quality education in a safe and conducive environment," she added.
Pres. Tria assured the parents of its students that safety measures are being strictly followed as all of its full time employees are vaccinated against COVID-19.
Close coordination with the Manila Health Department and the Department of Health is being made to ensure that students are protected as well.
"We have gone beyond the minimum requirements to ensure a safe campus for our students," President Tria said.
"Our safety measures include following a rigid schedule for disinfection, students staying in the classroom (it will be the instructors who will go to them), implementing a staggered and cyclical schedule to ensure that the students won't be coming in and won't be dismissed at the same time, providing alcohol dispensers in every room, and ensuring well-ventilated classrooms," she added
