    For those who interested in going to Philippines for medical school!

    I m a third medical student at UST. I think there are many people wondering what is the main different between US cirrculum and Philippino cirrculum? In the process of studying for my step one rite now, i come to recognize the main different is simply this Phi medical school cirrculum focus on the What instead of the Why. What i mean is this: In Dr. Goljan's audio for patho, he mentioned over and over that to be successful in step one, u cant just memorize. You have to understand the why behind every mechanism. Unfortunately, in Philippines memorization is the key for medical school education. They emphasize on remembering facts after facts but the main concept and in depth understand is not a piority. Therefore, when their students study step one, they find it difficult because it's a new way of thinking. That is most of the students from philippines medical school have to take six months to prep for step one. I think if i have to do it over again- and Philippines is my only choice-I would start watching the kaplan video and listen to Goljan's audio since first year. Go to class but focus on Kaplan videos, which u can get if you know the rite people via boot legs hahaha. This wont help you to do well in school, but u will be better prepare when it's time to take step one. So ask around and get those kaplan videos and books, start your prereading and review since first year, you can do by subjects of the semenster like anatomy, physio, biochem. Do your prep early? Unlike me found out too late. So i hope this help clear up some confusion about Philippines medical school for anyone interested.

    The person who made that quote about Perpetual posted it in 2007. You could be in for a long wait for that reply.

    Well this seems to be a very old thread which has been posted since 2006. I would be interested in the latest fee structure to study the course in Philippines for medical school!
    If any one has these details, I would appreciate if you would post it here as an update for this year

    The fee structure for Philippines can vary, anywhere from $6000 per year (excl. accomodation etc) to over $15000 per year (excl.).
