The Institute of Urology began as a section of Urology under the then Department of Surgery. It was in 1989 when the first resident signified an intention to be trained in the subspecialty of surgery called Urology. At the time, there was no formal program when Dr. Buenaventura Jose Reyes began his training in Urology, under the guidance of Urology pioneers Dr. Achilles Bartolome, Dr. Ponciano Bernardo
Jr., Dr. Pedro Lantin Jr., and Antonio Tiongson Sr., as well as the interim training officer, Dr. Jaime Balingit.
In 1993, the St. Luke’s Section of Urology was granted full accreditation as a Training Program by the Philippine Board of Urology, as the ninth accredited training program in the country. With Dr. Achilles Bartolome as head of the section, Dr. Antonio Anastacio assumed the role of the first Residents Training Officer in 1993 to 1995.

He was later succeeded in this role by Dr. Josefino Castillo, who was the Training Officer from 1995 to 2009.
Dr. Marcelino Morales assumed the headship of the Institute of Urology in 2009. At the time, preparations were under way for the opening of a second location of the St. Luke’s Medical Center in Global City. Dr. Josefino Castillo was appointed head of the Institute of Urology in the Global City location in 2010, with Dr. Buenaventura Jose Reyes assuming the role of Training Officer. Thus due to the unique structure of St. Luke’s Medical Center as a single hospital in two geographic locations, the training program of the Institute of Urology also became the first Urology training program in two locations.

In 2016, Dr. Dennis Lusaya was appointed the head of the Institute of Urology in Quezon City and Dr. Dennis Serrano was appointed head of the Global City location. Dr. Diosdado Limjoco was appointed the Residents Training Officer.

In 2021, Dr. Diosdado Limjoco succeeded Dr. Lusaya as head of the Institute of Urology in Quezon City and Dr. Josefino Castillo was again appointed head of Global City. Dr. Cristopher Perez was appointed the Residents Training Officer Overall Head / Head SLIU – QC: Diosdado D. Limjoco, M.D., FPUA Head SLIU – GC : Josefino C.

Structure of the Program and Composition of the Training Committee

The distinct set-up of the St. Luke’s Medical Center as one hospital in two geographic locations has allowed for a Urology training program that, with the approval of the Philippine Board of Urology under the chairmanship of Dr. Nelson Patron, maximizes learning experience for the residents, with the Quezon City and Global City rotations serving in a complementary fashion so that residents are able to meet the requirements of the Philippine Board of Urology for trainees.

There remains a single training program with a single Residents Training Officer, who supervises the learning activities of the residents in Quezon City and Global City. The following resolutions have been maintained since the approval of the extension of the training program to the Global City location:
● The training hub of the St. Luke’s Institute of Urology is in Quezon City.
● The Head of the Institute of Urology in Quezon City is the Head of the training program.
● The Residents Training Officer is the consultant assigned to monitor all activities of the residents in training.
● The clinical exposure and learning activities in Quezon City are sufficient to support the minimum requirements of the Philippine Board of Urology.
● The rotation of the residents in the Global City location aims to increase the exposure of the residents to minimally invasive surgeries, including but not limited to minimally invasive surgeries and use of the Robotic Surgical Systems.
● The number of rotating residents in Global City will be in accordance with the rotations recommended by the training committee and approved by the Head of the Institute of Urology training program.
