Angeles University Foundation

(Abbreviated as AUF), is a private, non-profit Roman Catholic university in Angeles City, Philippines and it is considered as the premiere university of Central Luzon region of Philippines established in 1962 by Mr. Agustin P. Angeles, Barbara Yap-Angeles and family. After only less than nine years of operation, the Institution was granted University status on April 16, 1971 by the Department of Education, Culture and Sports. It is one of few Philippine universities granted autonomous status, with a number of its degree programs having been duly recognized as Centers of Excellence and Centers of Development by the Commission on Higher Education (CHED).

Today, AUF has the highest percentage of faculty with graduate degrees in the Central Luzon region, and among the highest in the Philippines.

Acknowledged for their expertise and integrity, AUF faculty members play an active role in elevating the standards of Philippine education through their involvement as accreditors, technical panelists and board specialty examiners.

The campus is located along MacArthur Highway in Barangay Salapungan, Angeles City. The campus is urban in setting, and it is located within the business area of the city.

The Angeles University Foundation School of Medicine started its operations in June 1983, with an authorized quota of 150 students and a faculty of 18, 8 of whom have had an average of 20 years teaching experience.

The AUF Doctor of Medicine program is the only PAASCU accredited program in Central Luzon. It was the first in the region given ISO 9001-2000 certification by TUV-SUD in 2008 and the only one north of Manila that is ISO 9001-2008 certified by TUV-SUD. AUF has the greatest number of PAASCU accredited programs in Central Luzon region.

The AUF Doctor of Medicine program has produced outstanding board performance in the Philippine medical board exam, stellar performance at the Medical Council of India's Screening Test - FMGE, and a 100% pass rate in the 2014 Nepal Medical Council Screening Test. As a result, an increased number of Indian students are now enrolled in the AUF BS Psychology program leading to the degree Doctor of Medicine.
