    The education level in Philippine Medical Schools...

    Advertisements



    Does anybody know how well the education level in Philippine medical schools compares to that of US medical schools? How well does foreign/international medical schools prepare you for the exams? And does anyone know the percentage of Foreign/International medical graduates practicing in the US?

    Philippine medical education is not geared toward passing the USMLE, although it provides excellent knowledge and training. A proof maybe is that the Philippines is the second largest provider of FMGs practicing in the US.

    I agree. They will not prepare you for USMLE (that is not their mission). Most schools there are weaker in basic sciences(compared to US Schools). However, almost all the Americans I know who graduated from there were able to get into US residencies. You have to prepare independently for USMLE.
