Anyone going to UE?
Is anyone going to UE this June 2006? Is this a good school that will prepare a student for the USMLE? I visited the school and it seems really old. I also learned that its teaching style is PBL = problem based learning.

do you know UERM e-mail address?
I'm planning to apply for this June 2006...Do you know when is the application deadline??
Would you help with UE Registrar e-mail address?
I went to their websites but no info about it.
The deadline for UE was on Dec. 16, 2005. The registrars email is email@example.com. Her name is Ms. DeLos Reyes. Warning: it takes a while to receive feedback.
Why are you planning on going to UE or mainly study medicine in the PI?
I don't mean to disturb the tempo of this thread, but what does UE stand for?
UE--University of the East.. One of the best medical schools in main stream of Manila, Philippines
im looking into Philippine medical schools as well. I know the NMAT is a requirement, however ive read from other posts that it is possible to gain acceptance while the school waits for NMAT scores. I am just wondering if that is true... and also can anybody offer some advice as to how to prepare for the NMAT
are you alread in manila?

Well, UE is more on clinical "approach to the patient".. so they graduate with clinical skills but lack the details that they should have memorized. where as students from traditional system will have memorized all the details, memorized the whole lecture, but they fall short on applying it clinically.

i think your making a BIG mistake on what i have said about PBL&traditional ways of teaching...as what i have said it depends upon the medical student itself on how one can study the art&science of medicine..and you cannot say that PBL is more clinical approach& one forgot the other necessary things&PBL is USMLE...&traditonal way is just memorizing things,forgetting clinical& for Phil boards-but i respect your opinion regarding this matter..The only thing i can say is that whatever&wherever medical schools one maybe in right now the MAJOR part of one's learning depends on oneself...and we are just discussing matters here that might HELP those Fil-Ams/pinoys or foreign students who are planning to study back home and this is the main reason why this forum has been made...im not pointing what medical schools are very good, good or bad or those medical schools w/ PBL method or traditional method are good or bad...the thing is based from my experience traditional way is much better for me because i learned the basic things that a newly graduate doctor should have learned..btw my first 2 yrs of medical school was taught traditionally& the last 2 was by PBL...
