The Central Philippine University College of Medicine (commonly referred to as CPU-ColMed or ColMed) is the medical school of Central Philippine University. Established in 2003, it is one of the newest college and academic program of the university. Currently, the College temporarily sits at the fourth floor of the Loreto D. Tupaz Building, with a separate Anatomy Building behind the CPU Church or University Church and the Fine Arts Building of Central.

The college offers undergraduate degrees in Respiratory Therapy and Lifestyle and Fitness management, a program of which the college pioneered and the only one that offers in the Philippines and the (professional) degree in Doctor of Medicine (MD).[1] Although the medical school was founded in 2003, the idea of establishing a medical school at Central Philippine University was conceived in the 1930s. The Iloilo Mission Hospital serves as the base hospital and partner institution of the college.

The medical school produced its first topnotcher since its founding in 2003 when its graduate Jomari Rieza Biñas ranked number three in the March 2016 Physician Licensure Examination in whole Philippines.[2][3][4][5]
