Top 10 Best Medical Schools In the Philippines


The Top Ten

1 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!

The best in the Philippines!

2 University 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.

How can I get information about university of philippine

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.

It is not true that UP College of Medicine grads always pass the Board Exams. The rumor was that Class of 1960 had 2 failures and so the freshman Class of '65 got hammered hard. Unfortunately, the Instructors in the freshman year are there not there to teach but to intimidate you. You ask them a question and the answer is, " go read the book ". Thank goodness that we now have Google to ask. That is not to say however that I do not owe any thanks to the UPCM. I just think that there are better ways to teach medical students without making them feel that they are dumb. by the way, 92% of our class left for the USA and majority stayed permanently here in the US. Our Class however during the years donated more than a million dollars to the PGH and the UPCM.

3 University 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!

Top notcher, 400yrs.

4 Far 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

It's my daughter's choice to take her Med tech course and will proceed to medical studies in FERN because of high quality of teachings and medical facilities and laboratiries of the school; nothing less is the rating of the board passers yearly.

How much is the tuition fee for those who are thinking of becoming a doctor? - doctorstargazer

6 St. Luke's College of Medicine

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).

More than the scholarships and comfy environment of St. Luke's College of Medicine, the institution didn't just develop a pool of the brightest students and best physician/professors; but a family which promotes cammaraderie, support system & opennes among its students. With its new curriculum, which was develop to improve their passing rate in the local boards, is indeed commendable. From a passing rate of 65-75% to both first and second time takers; has risen up to 94% (100% for the 1st time takers), which indeed is a big deal for something as young as this institution.

Number 1 in training!

7 University 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.

One of the best medicine school in the Philippines.

My name is hana I am somali I need to study in Philippines for medicine

8 Ateneo 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.

My daughter admission for mbbs

9 De 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 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!

10 Saint 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!

12 Pamantasan 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.

Unlike other schools where all you need is money for admission, this school requires superior intelligence. Low cost, but very high quality medical education at par with UP and even above UST.

Top 1 and 100% passing rate (along with St. Luke's) during the September 2016 Physicians Licensure Exam.

13 AMA 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

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.

College with best facilities, faculties and best education ethics

Good college of Phillipines

16 Cagayan 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!

Best in region 2

17 University of Perpetual Help

Am joining in this university may I think it's good

UPHSD Education Methodology is based on Dale's Learning Pyramid. Teachers at UPHSD medical university function more as a facilitator than as a lecturer. At the University of Perpetual Help, special care is taken not just to improve the memory capacity of the student but also to improve the thinking capability of their student. Because of their educational methodology UPHSD repeatedly tops the best medical colleges in the Philippines.

Best medical college to study the medicine for the students of India and abroad

This university is close to 50 years old and it teaches more than 20000 students every year in various disciplines. I wonder why university of perpetual help is not at the top.

One of the pioneering and best University in Medicine.

19 West 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.

Looking' at those positive comments about this University, it really drives my passion as a Solomon Islander, that I wants to be there,undertakin' the field of medicine. But HOW will I get the admission?
