UP, UE, and UST are by far the best med schools for me, sunod ang CIM.
It's funny and sad how people easily get attracted to these type of thread discussing which is best or better.
You'll be fine from whichever school, UP, UST, UE, CIM or even Ateneo perhaps, you will finish your medicine course.
A very good or worse doctor I believe is not determined by which school he came from because both kinds can/have come from either school mentioned above - except of course Ateneo, since it has not produced one.
A very good doctor is one who continually studies and never stops at improving on the science and art of his profession. He has the joy and passion for healing, and you can see it in the way he approaches and treats his patients. He is never lazy, complacent or dismissive. The corridor to his clinic is always lined with patients, from almost all walks of life. He makes sure he attends to his share of poor patients, many times on pro bono basis. And yet for all these, he chooses to remain a humble instrument of God, usually unnoticed, for he knows that the power to heal is a gift and privilege accorded to him by God alone.
Ateneo might be a new med school but they're getting bright students, especially their homebreds from the Loyola Schools. As far as the board exam is concerned, I'm expecting Ateneo Medicine to garner a high passing rate.
First batch of Ateneo med grads this August Physician Boards. Goodluck!
The logic of p/e ratio is universal, is it not?
Top performing schools in the aug 2012 physician licensure examination
1. UP - 99.35%
2. UST - 98.71%
3. ATENEO - 98.39%
4. Cebu Institute of Medicine
5. Pamantasang lungsod ng Maynila
7.West Visayas state univ
8. St. louis University
This is legit.
Anyway, I can say that Ateneo has an edge and has game! Mga atenista to. Hindi to sanay matalo. Its either they aim big or aim bigger!!!!
go to UP Med and learn medicine the "fun" way hahaha.
Don't have a tourniquet with you? no problem use a foley cath or a glove.
Need to do a blood extraction? you dont need a syringe all you need is a g23 needle and the tube.
Learn to do a speculum exam, IE and PAP smear in less than a minute and with only one gloved hand!
Wanna do minor surgery all by yourself on only your third year? Go ahead (although I'm pretty sure this is illegal somewhere according to Med Jur haha)
Learn to resuscitate hypotensive pediatric patients on the fly! Walk in the ER not knowing anything and after a 12 hour stint and 12 toxic patients later you've learned what to do! just...you dont know what to call what you're doing you just know how to do it haha.
Don't know how to deliver a baby? learn by doing it. Just rotate, pull and hope for the best.
Enrolled with a negative PPD? You're gonna graduate with a 25mm induration HAHA!
Sterile gloves? puh-leeaaaase we just need clean gloves.
Ayer's and cytobrush? nope! cotton pledgets right here.
Enjoy histo lab with microscopes from WEST germany (yes when there was still a west germany)
Due to "energy saving" features of the hospital expect your night vision and other senses to be heightened after a few weeks. Just like batman. Oh yeh.
>>>> seriously though: If you plan on going to UP-PGH, dont expect to get the best lectures in the world (it's still a lot of you gotta read it yourself kinda deal) or the best working conditions. It's more of just really soaking in the experience and learning to deal with what you have and how to still discharge your duties as a budding physician despite the I ******** you not inhuman working conditions and really "holy hell" states most of your patients will be in. Personally I believe the only real edge you get out of training in UP-PGH is temperance. Everything else, lectures, lab work etc. etc. any other school can do that.
meh was bored thought I'd post my thoughts on the topic. Note: the first part was purely for entertainment but completely based on the reality that is PGH.
Yung tiga Ateneo na intern sa Medical City hindi marunong gumamit ng Steth sa pag BP sa akin!
^ huh? how can anyone be unable to use a steth? @_@ its just a tube with earpieces @_@
I'm from UP-PGH but I dunno somehow I feel that the direction Ateneo is taking is the "future" of medical education in the Philippines. But that's just my opinion. Hahahaha
Ayyyyyyy! Buko juice ko Inday! Dali! N.K.K.L.K.!
Hinimatay ako! Nabasa ko ang thread title!

Ateneo was clever in starting its own medical school. With most slots in PGH and UST Med being reserved for its own graduates, a lot of applicants from Ateneo, La Salle, UP and UST enrolls at UERM and FEU Med. Given its brand name, it knew it can easily snag a big portion of these bright students. The clever part is partnering with a fancy private hospital instead of establishing one which will be costly and highly risky. Fr. Nebres managed Ateneo well.
It's a venture La Salle should have taken decades ago. They should have partnered with the Asian Hospital and opened a college of medicine in Alabang. Instead, they took the safe road by purchasing an existing medical school and excluding it from DLSU-Manila.
Ateneo's performance with the last Board Exams speaks for itself - that it is a promising school for having bright students.
Personally though, I would rather enrol in UERM and FEU than Ateneo Medical School. Mahirap na sa practice ng walang alumni support.
One reason (if not THE reason) why Ateneo lawyers are successful - THE ALUMNI SUPPORT. Unwritten rule sa Ateneo Law School: its a sin to say NO to colleagues - especially kung fraternal brods. hehehe
