GCM students engage in extra-curricular activities organized by the Association of Philippine Medical Colleges - Student Network (APMCSN). Working in partnership with the Association of Philippine Medical Colleges Foundation, APMCSN endeavors to promote an active role for students in the development of medical education.
APMCSN’s annual activities include the APMC National Convention, the Medicine Student Summit, MedGroove (a dance contest), MediRhythmia (a choral contest), and the Palarong Med (an inter-med college sportsfest).
GCM provides its student body access to webinars and workshops that complement their learning through discussions with distinguished speakers.
Every January 12, the Gullas College of Medicine celebrates Founder’s Day together with its flagship university, the University of the Visayas, to honor the memory of UV founder and first president, Don Vicente Gullas. In unity with all faculty members and students of the entire University of the Visayas System, the GCM community solemnly celebrates the special day with a Holy Mass.
GCM is a cultural melting pot, and on Students’ Day, this is made manifest by the multi-cultural celebration that GCM prepares to promote diversity, equality, and unity among its students.
