Medical education in the Philippines
« on: November 09, 2008, 08:33:29 PM »
Medical education in the Philippines is principally offered and developed by accredited and government recognized medical schools in the country.
The Philippine medical schools are graduate schools offering the Doctor of Medicine (M.D.) degree. The M.D. is a four-year professional degree program which qualifies the degree holder to take the licensure exam for medical doctors in the Philippines.

Admission to medical schools

Before applying to any medical school, a candidate must earn a bachelor's degree with credits in certain required subjects. The most common pre-medical degrees include biology, psychology, medical technology, pharmacy, nursing, and physical therapy.

In addition, a candidate must take and pass the National Medical Admissions Test (NMAT), the national entrance exam for all medical schools in the Philippines.
