The year 1967, marked the auspicious beginnings of what is to become a premier educational institution in the country particularly in the field of medicine, nursing, and paramedical courses.
It all started when Jose C. Olivares, a chemistry professor by vocation but with strong entrepreneurial spirit, and his son-in-law, Dr. Vicente M. Santos, an obstetrician, founded the Our Lady of Fatima Hospital in 1967
It soon became the primary provider of medical services to the residents of Valenzuela and its neighbouring towns. With a vision of creating medical complex that will be a training centre for competent health care providers, Mr. Olivares created the Fatima Medical Science Foundation Inc., and initially established the Our Lady of Fatima College of Nursing in 1973.
More curricular programs were added in the 1970s including courses in Midwifery, Chemistry, and Veterinary Medicine.
Through the years, the Our Lady of Fatima University has responded to the rapid changes in medical science and technology and the social milieu through constant modernization of its facilities and continuing development of its faculty.
From the 1980s through the 1990s the country witnessed the development of OLFU with the inclusion of other courses and programs such as Physical Therapy, Hotel & Restaurant Management, Computer Studies, Maritime Education and Criminology.
To date, the Our Lady of Fatima University has 4 campuses: Valenzuela City (Main Campus), Quezon City (Hilltop Campus) Anti polo City and Pampanga.
The Medical School is always conscious of the need for close collaboration with its local sister health units as well as other respected affiliated medical institutions, i e Qiqihar Medical University in China and the University of the Philippines College of Medicine – Philippine General Hospital Medical Centre, in order that EAC becomes a true Health Science Centre that is recognized not only nationally but also internationally through its significant contributions to the health manpower training needs of the country and the rest of the world.The unrelenting and concerted efforts to establish a centre of excellence in the medical sciences and other disciplines by the administration, faculty and staff of the Our Lady of Fatima College have finally come to fruition. As an affirmation of the commitment to uphold the highest standard and quality of education, the Commission on Higher Education (CHED) granted the College the University status in December 2, 2002 by virtue of Resolution No. 401, series of 2002
OLFU has a dedicated 200 bed tertiary care hospital apart from 1000+ beds in secondary and primary care facility. The amount of patient exposure the students can get is comparable to any of our Government medical colleges back home and superior to any of the private colleges.
