From what I read Philippines is well recognised and their curriculum follows the latest US based systems. Apart from that itís worldwide recognised for a high overall literacy rate with a majority of the population which is English speaking.
Philippines medical schools dont use US cirriculum.
I don't know what schools are you talking about? I should know I went to FEU. Although, we use the same text books, but the cirriculum is far from USA. If u dont believe me, just go to any US medical school website and look at its schedule and compares to PI medical schools. Furthermore, if you want to investigate more into the subject, you can print out syllabus and compare. The fact about USMLE for PI grad is most of PI grads have to take 6-12months off after graduation to study for it compare to US grads-4-8weeks prep times- or even the big three Carribbean med schools.
