The BMC Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology was established in 1975. Dr. Antonia Vilgera, an Associate of the Philippine Obstetrical and Gynecological Society for 13 years (1975 - 1988), led the department with two other consultants, Dr. Rizaline Cuadro and Dr. Lourdes Jurado. During this time, the department was accredited by the DOH for service.
In 1988, under the guidance of Dr. Elna Chia, the department was accredited by the Philippine Obstetrical and Gynecological Society for service. A year later, in 1990, the Residency Training program was accredited and continued in the ensuing years. There were six graduates during the pre-accreditation period and 48 graduates post-accreditation. All are doing well in their respective practices.
The department started with five consultants who initiated the department's accreditation.
