The Top Ten

Fatima 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!
[Newest]Have a quality education
More comments about Fatima Medical Colleges (OLFU - Medicine)

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!
[Newest]UST Doctors have good work ethics.

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...
[Newest]How can I get information about university of philippine

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.
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. =)
"SINCE the first batch from the Institute of Medicine graduated in 1957, the Institute has consistently produced board topnotchers. Through the years, it has contributed some of the finest names in the healthcare field: four Secretaries of Health, seven PMA Presidents, one President of the World Medical Association, and six Presidents of the Philippine College of Surgeons. 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. " in short. FEU is a well established med school in the country. Subok na ng panahon. =)

Friendly and compassionate.

6University 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.

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.
Born and bred Lasallian. When I took up medicine, this was the first place I thought of! The facilities are great, the environment beautiful and friendly. Let's not forget to mention the countless experiences here. It's definitely one of the best places to study medicine in Cavite.
This school has the most innovative way of teaching students, this has the most equipped professional teachers and well discipline faculties.

The Contenders

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!

First University to be granted an Institutional Accreditation Status

[Newest]Best School for Pharmacy

15West 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.
[Newest]Be proud of this

16San Beda College of Medicine
School of neurologists, indeed.
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.

17Cebu 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.

18Pamantasan 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.
[Newest]Graduates had gone through rigid training

19Medical Colleges of Northern Philippines

Quality education, modern school facility, one of the best that offers double major in Public health
First school to offer double major. Quality of students are at par in one of the best in the country.

23Angeles University Foundation
Angeles University Foundation School of Medicine already established its name as one of the finest med schools north of Manila. The university has been the consistent number 1 school in all health related courses in Central Luzon and probably the whole Northern Luzon in terms of passing rates, national and international accreditations, and CODs/COEs. The university also owns one of the few tertiary teaching, training hospitals in the north- AUF Medical Center. The hospital pioneers kidney and cardiac transplantation, and other extensive procedures previously performed exclusively in Metro Manila.

However, it is very costly to study in AUF. Its MD program runs 220, 000 pesos/ USD 5500 a year (as of June 2013). It is one of the most expensive provincial medical schools in the Philippines, comparable even to UST's and Saint Luke's. However, with the consistent 100% passing rate it performed in the past 3 years, it definitely proves that what you pay is really worth it especially for the people of Central Luzon. It is actually the only medical school in Region 3, and considering the rapid development of the area, in the presence of Clark, studying in the suburbs can really substantially lessen the stress of medicine comparing it to living in the polluted capital.
Has the highest passing rate in central luzon in all medical related course
The Only Medical School in Central Luzon.

Consistent 100% passing rate for the last 3 years.

Home of the best teriary hospital in Central Luzon.

The best one I must say. Though it is not as popular as the other schools, the College continue to produce 5-star physicians with the right attitude, knowledge, and skills
"We care, we serve."

27Bicol Christian College of Medicine
If you want a fully loaded schedule filled with traditional lectures, e-learning guides, hospital exposure, case studies, exams, exams, and exams, you're in the right place. One thing I like about BCCM is that they encourage students to be an active part of their medical education according to their own needs. BCCM has recently adopted the hybrid method of teaching I. E 70% traditional (lectures) and 30% PBL and e-learning which works perfectly in today's advancing technology.

The best Medical School in Cagayan Valley. Teamed up with the Faculty of Medicine and Surgery of the Pontifical University of Santo Tomas. I'm very much privileged that I'll be one of its graduate soon.
There is high regards for its student's. We, even just at our first year are pretty much treated like doctors already. The faculty is composed of a wide range of specialists (Diplos and Fellows) that excel in their own fields.
