Davao Doctors College

“Through Excellence We Shall Lead”

Davao Doctors College Davao as Doctors Hospital School of Nursing

Davao Doctors College (DDC), initially known as the Davao Doctors Hospital School of Nursing (DDHSN), was the brainchild of a group of medical doctors in response to the increasing demand for nurses in Davao Doctors Hospital. Its pioneering founders were Dr. Agusto Abela, Dr. Juan Belisario, Jr., Dr. Rodrigo Casiño, Dr. Valeriana Castillo, Dr. Honorio dela Cruz, Dr. Jose Gantioqui, Jr., Dr. Luisito Guanlao, Dr. Honorio Hilario, Sr., Dr. Benigno Magpantay, Dr. Gerino Pangan, Dr. Pacita Sanvicente, Dr. Crisostomo Serrano, Sr., Dr. Leo Sicat, Dr. Amador Villanueva, and Dr. Herminio Villano, Sr. DDC was originally housed within the hospital premises and offered only the 3-year Basic Course in Nursing leading to graduate nurse. There were 52 students in the first batch of enrollees, 32 of whom eventually graduated. One hundred percent of the batch passed the Nurse Licensure Examination in 1978.

Davao Doctors Hospital School of Nursing Expansion

In 1979, DDHSN expanded its curricular offerings. The Graduate Nurse Program was upgraded to Bachelor of Science in Nursing. Bachelor of Science in Biology and Pre-Dentistry opened in the same year.

Davao Doctors Hospital School of Nursing became DDC

In 1981, DDHSN officially became Davao Doctors College (DDC). Its track record of 100% passing average in the Nursing licensure examination for seven consecutive years inspired the school administrators to open more courses and improve the school’s facilities.

Davao Doctors College Expansion

The following decade saw full-scale academic and structural expansion. In 1990, two more courses opened: Bachelor of Science in Physical Therapy and Bachelor of Science in Radiologic Technology. The 4-storey main building was constructed in its present site; a 5-storey annex soon followed to house additional facilities. Both buildings now stand prominently in downtown Davao, a stone’s throw away from its mother company, Davao Doctors Hospital.

Davao Doctors College offered the Doctor of Optometry

In 1994, DDC offered the Doctor of Optometry program. A 2-storey building was built and utilized exclusively for the program.

Davao Doctors College offers more courses

Year 1998 ushered the opening of more program offerings like Bachelor of Science in Psychology, Bachelor of Science in Hotel and Restaurant Management, Bachelor of Science in Computer Science and Bachelor of Arts in Communications Arts. In 2001, the College offered Bachelor of Secondary Education and Bachelor of Elementary Education.

Davao Doctors College geared for the accreditation

In 2000, DDC geared for the accreditation of its Nursing Program to the Philippine Association of Colleges and Universities – Commission on Accreditation (PACUCOA). Currently, the Nursing Program holds a Level IV Accredited Status and while the Biology, Hospitality Management and Radiologic Technology Programs hold Level II Formal Accredited Status. Moreover, the Physical Therapy, Optometry and Psychology programs leveled up as they were granted the Candidate Status on September 2013.

Davao Doctors College offers TESDA courses

In 2009, the College offered Bachelor of Science in Occupational Therapy and short term TESDA accredited courses.

Davao Doctors College on another milestone

Year 2012 brought another milestone to DDC. Graduate Programs in Master of Arts in Nursing (MAN) and Master in Business Administration (MBA) in consortium with the Ateneo de Davao University were offered. Beginning the 1st Semester of School Year 2014-2015, DDC offers new academic programs like Bachelor of Science in Pharmacy, Bachelor in Medical Laboratory Science (MedTech), Bachelor of Science in Entrepreneurship and Bachelor of Science in Biology major in Medicinal Horticulture.

Davao Doctors College as of Today

Today, DDC offers 15 health and wellness academic courses distributed in two colleges, the College of Medical Entrepreneurship (CME) and the College of Allied Health Sciences. From its modest beginnings some 38 years ago, DDC has metamorphosed into a prestigious institution of learning. Today, DDC stands proud and remains steadfast in its quest for academic excellence and leadership.
