The Manila Adventist College or MAC (formerly known as Manila Adventist Medical Center and Colleges, Inc. or MAMC) is a private coeducational Christian tertiary health sciences institution. The campus is located adjacent to its own integrated private hospital the Adventist Medical Center Manila within the city of Pasay, Metro Manila, Philippines. Both the colleges and hospital are run by the Seventh-day Adventist Church of the Philippines.

It is a part of the Seventh-day Adventist education system, the world's second largest Christian school system.[1][2][3][4]

History[edit]

The colleges were first established as a school in 1993. It was incorporated with its parent hospital, the Manila Sanitarium Hospital, upon its establishment, thus adding the hospital name with a “school of medical arts” (SMA).

In its opening year, the college offered five vocational and allied health courses: three-year Associate in Radiologic Technology, two-year Midwifery, two-year Physical Therapy technician, one-year courses in Nursing Assistant and Emergency Medicine Technician.

After a year, the college wished to upgrade its Physical Therapy Technician and the Associate in Radiologic Technician into a five-year and four-year Bachelor's degree. The college wrote to the Commission on Higher Education (CHED) asking for the authority to implement the upgrade, which was agreed on, and the upgraded courses were offered in school year 1995-6.

In 1995, the college expanded its grounds by constructing a three-storey building with a capacity of six classrooms, five laboratory rooms and two offices. The building was finished in 1996.

In 2000 the college introduced two new programs: the six-month Caregiver Program and the four-year B.S. in Nursing degree. The hospital and school were renamed from Manila Sanitarium Hospital to Manila Adventist Medical Center in 2002 and from School of Medical arts to Colleges in 2007.
