On April 21, 1977, Cebu Doctors’ College of Medicine (CDCM) incorporation papers were signed and its status as a non-stock, non-profit foundation was approved by the Securities and Exchange Commission on December 21, 1977. CDCM formally opened its doors as a medical institution in June of Academic Year 1977-1978. Out of the numerous applicants, only eighty pioneer freshmen were accepted. Since then, its Board of Trustees has pursued a program of expansion which continues to this date enabling CDCM to grow and earn its mark as one of the best medical schools in the country.

On November 23, 2004, Cebu Doctors’ College of Medicine officially became Cebu Doctors’ University College of Medicine, with the acronym CDU-CM, after Cebu Doctors’ College was granted University Status by the Commission on Higher Education.
