    Philippine Medical Schools, do your students get what and how you teach?

    Advertisements



    I am planning to take medicine after I graduate from my bachelor's degree program. I have already been doing a some researching, surveying and comparisons on different medicals schools on different aspects. Now, I would like to focus on the comprehensibility and teaching methods of Philippine medical schools in training and educating students. I believe that it isn't the passing rate of schools that reflects the overall education experience of the school as selectiveness and leniency in admission may be a great factor in producing outliers. However, I believe that even with a medical school with excellent facilities, high profile professors, and the like, one important thing to consider in the whole medical education is the way the student accepts, processes and understands medicine in general. For example, I have heard that St. Lukes is one of the most prestigious medical institutions in the Philippines with high standards yet great facilities and mentors. However, according to many students, their teaching methods are not that comprehensible. They opt to go to another schools instead to continue their education, and apparently peform better afterwards. Our Lady of Fatima, on the other hand, is very lenient and less selective of students. Despite the projected negative image of Fatima as a medical school, some students actually rate the teaching methods of Fatima as very comprehensible as they make concepts and the learning process very easy and understandable. According to them, the only reason why Fatima has a low passing rate is that most of the time, about 50% of class are smart, 50% of the class are not that determined - this is due to the leniency and less selectiveness of the school on admission. Could you shed some light on the trueness of this dilemma? on the topic as a whole? What can you say about your respective school?

    That is actually an excellent question..... which IMO applies to any school anywhere.

    Many times, schools just fire-away without consideration on how students learn or comprehend. They think since they have taught in a particular way or method for the last XXX years that it still should work.

    Some schools like UERM have tried PBL. I don't know how well it was received.

    what can you say about comments that say Fatima education is only average and spoonfeeding? Some people in this forum say that its only enough to get you a job, but doesn't necessarily encourage or facilitate critical thinking or to strive more for excellence. (no offense intended)
