Top 10 Best Medical Schools In the Philippines


The Top TenXW

1Fatima Medical Colleges (OLFU - Medicine)

Being a Fatima Instructor, we do the other way around. We go down to the students level, and together we rise to the top. Unlike other schools, students have to level their minds with their professors which is very unlikely because not all people are born with a brilliant mind. We at OLFU, forms our students to be brilliant. We believe in equal opportunity, and that students must be admitted to school regardless of there previous academic performance. NMAT or entrance exam in not a base of students capacity.. It could be developed.. Together we rise to the top!

In Our Lady of Fatima Univ, the are really true to their mission to "IMPROVE MAN AS MAN. " Go OLFU! Raise to the top!

Actually, we are on our way!

wow! really proud to be a fatimanians! my alma mater... OLFU always on the top... not only in nursing, but also in medicine, medtech, and physical therapy... that only shows that fatima gives a very good quality of education. YOU DID A GOOD JOB!

What can I do for admission

2University of Santo Tomas - Faculty of Medicine and Surgery

I'm from Ateneo Law School and also from Ateneo college, but currently, I'd pick UST Medical Faculty as the best in the Philippines. Another competitor would be UP Medical School. The current 3rd based on this year's Board Exam (98.39%) is Ateneo Med School in Ortigas. In the south, we have CIM; in the north, we have St Louis as the best.

Med school is easy in Philippines. Nobody reads books. Its all in a two page hand outs.

who beats 400 years of excellence and practice? even the pope was amazed right? my comment maybe short. but once is enough for the wise. go uste!

Viva UST! Viva Santo Tomas!

The most prestigious medical school in the country. Molding individuals with intellectual, moral and spiritual growth!

UST Med School remains the best in most categories

3University of the Philippines - College of Medicine

University of the Philippines. That explains it. Studying here says that you are not less than excellent, but even more than that. UP College of Medicine has been on the forefront of medicine practice in the country by choosing to open its attached hospital, the famed Philippine General Hospital, to all sectors, most especially the needy. UP's excellence comes not only from its excellent faculty but also its desire to serve the people.

My brother is a very smart doctor-to-be. He is studying at UP College of Medicine. Many think that this school is not best because of its faacilities but I think they produce the best and most competent doctors who eventually become popular. Life in UP MED is the best and most fun of all because not only is it a good school, but you also get to be with your friends taking up medicine who come from very rich families.

How come UPM is not on top? PGH is free and sets the medical standards of the COUNTRY! There is no better med school... One does not equate UP with being one of the best (unheard of! ), UP is best! Passing rates never go down 100% with a tagline as usual...

The name says it all. College of Excellence. Harvard of the Philippines.

4Far Eastern University - Dr. Nicanor Reyes Medical Foundation

It's not the number of topnotchers dictates the performance of the WHOLE's the over all PASSING rate. A number of topnotchers is useless if the university cannot maintain a high passing rate. You can have 6 topnotchers but that is just an individual performance. But if you look at the passing rate of the university, some even got only 33 percent out of 1, 000 med students who took the exam... In FEU, they always maintain an over all high passing rate. NO one is left behind. They work together to bring out the best from each med students...FEU has a name and credibility ever since the institution has been established.

The best doctors in the country are graduate from this university

FEU NRMF has already established it's name since 1957... Their college of medicine is one of the best. In 1986, the Board of Medical Education, DECS, and the Association of Philippine Medical Colleges gave the Institute the highest level of accreditation, and awarded it as a Center of Excellence in Medical Education. For 50 years, they have already produced more than 7, 000 graduates and more than 100 top notchers. It's pretty obvious that FEU is one of the best med school in the country. Most of the best surgeons I worked with were also graduates of FEU. Their students are smart and classy. Hindi mukhang trapo. Laugh out loud. Take note, PRC also announced FEU-NRMF as the top performing med school in the country on the recent physician board exam. Making the university as the only med school with the largest population of board passers in the said exam. =)

Medical students were taught to be independent!

State of the art hospital, competent medical doctors and staffs... And a good Samaritan to social responsibility.

I just need information about your college. As you know, some of university from your land started operation in India. I am also from southern part of India (Near chennai).

Friendly and compassionate.

7University of the East - Ramon Magsaysay Memorial Medical Center

Graduates of this school possess an aura of self confidence that comes from knowing they had an excellent training in clinical skills. They are also usually well-loved by patients and peers alike because of the way they conduct themselves.

Physicians who graduated from this institution are very conscientious, globally-competitive, holistic and well-bred.

Excellent training grouNd. We are molded to be clinically competitive in every specialization

One of the best medicine school in the Philippines.

8Ateneo School of Medicine and Public Health

Good training for student to be good behavior concept.

1st graduates and already placed 3rd in the board

As far as I know, the first instructors of medicine in Ateneo are Thomasians and Maroons... so I think they should get the credit for making it to the top 10 for until the first graduates of Ateneo takes over the instructor duties.

Quality and excellent teaching performance.

9Saint Louie University - College of Medicine

The best school ever in baguio city

I love to study here cause it have the quality

So high standard

One of the best medical school outside of manila in terms of training and academics. Percentage of passing in board exam one of the best result..

I believe that to be a good doctor is not based or reflected from the NMAT score, it is in the quality f education the school provides for the students. Saint Louis University International School f Medicine really hones students to be globally competent doctors. Go SLU!

High Standards. Now, even higher. It's called Quality Education.

10De La Salle Health Sciences Institute

The new De La Salle University college of medicine building is the best I've seen. State of the art facilities, classrooms that you'd mistake for an auditorium, beautiful library with friendly staff and a university medical center that provides adequate medical training for the 4thyr medical clerks and interns. Definitely one of the best places to study medicine outside of busy Metro Manila.

I'm a graduate of this school I think and feel that this is the Best Medical School... ! I'm now here in USA... I'm very proud that I studied in this Institution.

This school has the most innovative way of teaching students, this has the most equipped professional teachers and well discipline faculties.

This School has gone a long way! From a humble beginning but filled with the best faculty in their own expertise, it has really surpassed the category of what a medical school should have. Its graduates speak for itself.. Congratulations!

The Contenders

11Pamantasan ng Lungsod ng Maynila - College of Medicine

Who says medical education are only for the rich people?... PLM College of Medicine is being subsidized by the local government of Manila and because of this, students push themselves to study hard and gear towards excellence to make the most of the privilege being given by the city of Manila. Admission is tedious, and maintaining your stature in the college is doubly difficult.

Excellent quality of education for the cost. Highly selective in its admission and produces high caliber graduates. Reputation is comparable with UP and UST.

It has established its reputation as leading school of medicine in the Philippines.

Graduates had gone through rigid training

13AMA School of Medicine, Makati, Metro Manila

College with the best facilities, faculties, placements, and the main thing it has an army hospital for clinical exposures... Better than davao

College with best facilities, faculties and best education ethics

WORST COLLEGE. Very small campus. They Take money in advance and then in case the visa is refused they won't refund your money because the school of medicine doesn't even have a Bank Account. They Take money in the name of AMA computer college. Never choose this college. It's a private commercialised money hungry organisation with no actual substance in them. BETTER NOT STUDY MBBS AT ALL.

14Centro Escolar University

A CHED Autonomous University.
First University to be granted an Institutional Accreditation Status

-Leading university for Dentistry program.
-Recently received its Level IV status for Pharmacy program.
-Also the leading university for Optometry (8 out of 10 in the Optometry Board Exam are from CEU. )

All level 4, and the school is known to be the best medical school.. Except that they don't have college of medicine. Still they are the best for medical related courses!

The best medical school in u-belt!

Best School for Pharmacy

15Cagayan State University - College of Medicine

Quality education at its lowest price

High quality education that molds medical students to become competent and dedicated physicians committed to serve the region. A state university in the north that has proven its caliber, one of the top 15 medical schools for the year 2008-2013 recognized by the PRC.

The best school of medicine in northern luzon.. I wish to take up my doctor of medicine there in the future!

I want it's fee structure

16West Visayas State University College of Medicine

In any field of practice, consistency is the best parameter to judge credibility. West Visayas State University College of Medicine has always shown excellence in their passing marks and this is proof of their credibility.

This University has produced many doctors who are really credible, competent, intelligent and are all trained very well while they are still students of this University despite of the very low tuition fee offered by the College of Medicine- West Visayas State University. Proud to be Taga-West! =)))

I am a lawyer and was once student regent of the West Visayas State University-all I can say is that WVSU-COM is one of the top three leading medical institutions in the country, besting all other medical schools even those which are situated in the country's capital. Records have it.

The best training ground there is...

17University of San Jose - Recoletos

The best medical school ever in Cebu though it is still emerging now.

18San Beda College of Medicine

Above 90% passing rate for first time PLE takers. Only medical school that incorporates the Benedictine Hallmarks of Education.

One of the best medical school that offers an excellent neuroscience curriculum spearheaded by top-caliber neurologists and neurosurgeons in the country. Trust me, you'll learn how to localize lesions of NS in just a count of three. If you want to be an aspiring neurologist, enroll at SBCM.

SBCM is considered to be an "underdog" and a "dark horse" from all the medical schools in the country. But with its above 90% passing rate for first time PLE takers, this medical institution has something to say. PS: They don't gather potential topnotchers during admission because they CREATE topnotchers.

I heard that they already have a new curriculum. Most of the faculty are graduates of UP, and some from other prestigious schools as well like UST, FEU-NRMF, UERMMMC, ASMPH, etc.

School of neurologists, indeed.

19Cebu Doctors' University

Good facilities, good ambiance, good faculties make good conditions for students to become good doctors. It has many hospital branches in Central Visayas which allow Interns & post graduates sharpen their skills to become good doctors. It has a good record in passing percentage in board examinations.

It also has good products! In our part of the Philippines, the heads of the hospital all come from Cebu Doctors'! They also have very good facilities and good hospital support!

By far the most competent medical school in Cebu and probably one of the most in the entire Philippines.

Good school in cebu
