The University of Santo Tomas (UST) held the topping off ceremony of the Henry Sy Sr. Hall last October 7.
The seven-storey building is a tribute of the Sy family, the SM Group, and UST to the SM founder for his life-long education advocacy.
The Henry Sy Sr. Hall will serve as a hub for simulation in medical education, interactive student centered-learning, collaborative multidisciplinary research, and interprofessional education. It will house the Sts. Cosmas and Damian Simulation and Research Center.
“The Henry Sy Sr. Hall will be a state-of-the-art structure designed to meet the challenges and expectations of a digitally-inclined medical education landscape. It will house technologically advanced facilities and equipment, which will complement the existing teaching, learning, and research practices of the University. It is yet another milestone, securing the UST FMS (Faculty of Medicine and Surgery) a relevant spot, a significant spot in Catholic medical education in the country, the region, and the world,” said Dr. Ma. Lourdes Maglinao, dean of the FMS.
Medical students can access a broad range of digital tools and resources to enhance their learning and education as we were compelled to shift to e-learning and online course platforms,
Designed by C.A. Ventura & Partners, the Henry Sy, Sr. Hall is on track to be completed by June 2024.
