Health Services

The Health Services Unit (HSU) of SPUP fosters a “Healthy Paulinian Community”. Its role is to maintain a healthy atmosphere, to commit health services, to provide health information, and to present responsive health program.

SPUP Health Services Unit offers both dental and medical services. It provides assessment and assistance relative to the health status and concerns of the students, faculty members, staff and personnel of the University. Aside from the annual health examination, consultation, and daily dispensary treatment, the HSU undertakes prevention of diseases; response to emergencies; prescriptions and referrals; and the promotion of healthy lifestyles to all.

As the primary unit responsible to safeguard the health of every member of the SPUP academic community, the Health Services Unit endeavors the following health aspects:

  1. PROMOTIVE ASPECT
