Survive Medical School

The moment you get enrolled in a medical school, things become a level playing field.

Visit the UV Gullas Medical College to explore the student’s life in the campus.

In the Philippines, the Doctor of Medicine degree is a five years graduate program that will lay out your foundation as a doctor.

The initial three years covers the academic instructions delivered through a combination of laboratory work and lectures.

Fresher should expect to study basic sciences such as Preventive Medicine, Community Health, Biochemistry, Human Anatomy and Psychiatry, Physiology, and Medical Practice I.

After the completion of the first year, you will spend a year studying the basic concepts of Microbiology & Parasitology, Pharmacology, Medicine and Surgery, Pathology, Medical Economics, and Psychiatry II.

On the third year, you will be engaged with disease management, learning more about the diagnosis, & clinical management of common as well as rare medical conditions. At this phase, you will start interacting with the patients in the actual hospital setting.

In the fourth year, you will be doing as a junior intern. This phase is also referred to as clinical clerkship during this phase you will be rotated in various hospital departments.

You could expect to spend anywhere between a few weeks to two months in various fields such as Obstetrics,  Surgery, Pediatrics, Internal Medicine, Gynecology, and various subspecialties. You will be under the supervision of a faculty who will then evaluate your performance after each duty.

Once you get graduated, you will then transition to post-graduate internship. This will be the last phase of your training where you will work alongside residents & other members of the healthcare team.

Just like before, you will be under the supervision of a faculty member called “attending physician.”

In the UV Gullas Medical College, you will be assisted by an experienced faculty, who will guide you in each field.

The post-graduate internship lets you get trained more intensively in the different subspecialties like Urology, Dermatology, Pediatrics, Gynecology, Obstetrics, etc. It’s a crucial period in your medical education since you would not be allowed to take the licensure examination and practice your profession if you fail to complete the required hours of internship.

Knowing what lies ahead is different from actually being there and surviving med school. The best way to properly navigate your student life is to seek advice from those who already came out of it.
