Hi MD's i want to be a doctor.

I really want to become a doctor but we lack resources (financially). i will apply for scholarships, but i am just an average student. I am posting this message if there's a possibility that i could get a doctor who can sponsor me to achieve my dreams. GUSTO KO PO TALAGA MAGING DOKTOR.

    ^ Baka pwede kang magtanong sa Philippine military. Ang AFP kasi ay may kakayahan na pondohan ang pag-aaral ng mga nasasama dito.

    Mas madali ata kung halimbawa ikaw ay licensed physician or dentist ( ako ay isang dentist ) tapos sasali ka sa AFP. Mas madaling makakuha ng scholarship for residency / graduate studies. Not sure if the same applies to those who have yet to take up medicine. Kaya ng AFP magpaaral sa UP, sa La Salle, kahit nga sa AIM ( pero non-medical graduate studies ). Scholarship means they will shoulder your tuition fee and a lot of the expenses related to your studies ( books, photocopies, scientific seminars, etc. )

    Kung ma approve man ang sholarship mo, siyempre may kapalit ito. You'll have to render several years of service at the AFP.

    Or kung ayaw mo naman sa AFP, baka pwede kang mag-apply sa Pamantasan ng Lungsod ng Maynila (PLM). Sila ata ang may pinamababang tuition fee for medicine. Pinopondohan ang PLM ng local government of Manila.

    Thank you sa reply. question po, do i need to train din as a soldier? ganun po ba? kung ganun po mukhang malabo po kasi hindi ko po nature yung ganun. :) pero magandang option din yung sa AFP.:)

    regarding sa PLM naman po, mag a-apply po ako dun for next school year. hopefully makapasok.. pero if not, sponsor doctor na lang po :(. target school ko po kasi eh sa UST. sobrang gusto ko po kasi mag aral sa UST FMS and be a thomasian doctor someday.

    thank you po sa reply smile warrior. :)
  • If you're interested in bagging a scholarship.. as much as possible, get a good general average (2.0 and higher) in your premed. It's also very, very important to get a high NMAT score (90+). If you exerted enough effort to achieve those 2, you're almost guaranteed a scholarship spot in every med school that you want to apply.

    You may also go for UP or PLM, since those two have the most affordable tuitions. Yun nga lang, the competition can be very stiff.

    Alternatively, meron ding mga scholarships (DOH, PinoyMD, regional etc. ) na available. Just do some research and try applying.

    ^ You'll have to ask them directly ( re: AFP ) punch . Siyempre may physical aspect ang pagpasok sa AFP kahit ikaw ay medical personnel.

    I agree with Kraven, competetive nga ang pag-aaply sa UP ( I'm an Isko ) at PLM kasi ang daming gustong makapasok.

    My mother's a doctor. She studied at both UST (med) and UP (subspecialization). Maganda ang medical program ng UST. Kung hindi ako nagkakamali malapit sa P90,000 or more ata per semester ang tuition.

    Good luck. :)

    Hi kraven! Thanks for posting. average student lang ako.:lol: my gen average is 2.3 something lang kasi super active ko nung college, madami kasi ako organization noon.:p pero because of that scholar ako.

    Yung din inaalala ko regarding PLM sobrang stiff ng competition pero try ko pa rin mag-apply. sa UP given na yun, di na ako makakapasok dyan.:lol: kasi kailangan daw SOBRANG taas ng grades mo dyan. may classmate akong magna ***** and 90+ nmat nya. di sya natanggap.

    naghanap na ako ng scholarship sa net ( DOH, PinoyMD) pero mostly nasa province yung partner schools nila and yung nasa metro manila lang eh UP and PLM (ata).

    so ayun naghahanap ako ng sponsor doctor (kung meron).:(

    ^ I see. I hope things work out for you. Pagpalain ka sana. :)
  • hello! ngayon lang po ako napadaan dito. hehe!

    UST FMS offers scholarships sponsored by alumni associations based in the US. syempre in order to be qualified, you must be officially enrolled to the faculty and you should meet the requirements. during your graduation ceremonies, when you get up on stage, they'll be mentioning that you're a recipient of this certain scholarship whether you graduate with honors or not.

    goodluck & God bless!

  • ^ sorry i'm not sure kung may iba pang scholarships na in-o-offer sa UST FMS aside from the alumni assoc. :(
