Amidst all the talks about an MBBS in the Philippines being one of the best career decisions, the name of the Davao Medical School Foundation has always stood out. Everyone has had a lot to say about this university, especially the quality of medical education being provided here. One also tends to believe them as out of all the medical colleges in The Philippines, this one’s had the best results in the Indian licentiate exam i.e. the FMGE Exam.

However, this post seeks to do something different i.e. look into the progression of a candidate while s/he pursues their medical degree here.

Academic Basics

Academics are the backbone of any educational institution and often the building blocks of a student’s medical journey. Therefore, perfecting this becomes very important, which the Davao Medical School Foundation does.

It prepares the student for the MD course in the university through a detailed pre-med course of 1.5 years. From higher mathematic to the basics of biology, microbiology, environment, and many more subjects, making it a total of 30 subjects in the Pre-med course.

In the actual 4-year MD course, the medical disciplines covered include: -

  • Pediatrics

  • Surgery

  • Neuroscience

  • Radiology

  • Microbiology

  • Pharmacology

  • Anatomy

  • Histology

  • Psychiatry, and over 30 other disciplines.

This gives the student an idea about the basics in each discipline and eventually, makes them ready for other forms of learning.

Laboratory Training

Once the students develop the requisite basic understanding of the various medical disciplines taught in class, they are made to apply and test their knowledge practically. This takes place in the state-of-the-art laboratories of the university that have been mentioned below: -

  1. Simulation Lab: Consisting of mannequins, medical equipment, and rooms running clinical simulations, students get a real-life-like experience here. They develop and hone their skills as well as learn valuable social interactive tools important for a medical professional.

  1. Cadaver Dissection Lab: As the name suggests, students are introduced to human anatomy (outside the textbook) here for the 1st time. This university receives a regular and uninterrupted supply of cadavers for dissection and learning.

  1. Microbiology Lab: This offers a hands-on earning experience to students about the various microbiological process, like the various steps involved in identifying a pathogen and a lot more.

  1. Anatomage Lab: It offers a “Virtual Dissection System”  for the students to practice. This is the most technologically advanced way to learn and explore anatomy and physiology in ways that working on a cadaver isn’t.

Clinical Internships in Hospitals

The Davao Medical School Foundation is one of only 2 medical colleges in the entire region, where students start their clinical rotations during the 3rd and 4th years of their program. What this does is put the students on-field before time and as a result, students get a great deal of clinical exposure, perhaps relatively more than the others.

There are a total of 5 hospitals affiliated with this institution, the likes of which have been given below: -

  1. Davao Medical School Foundation Hospital (Poblacian District, Davao city, Davao del sur)

  2. San Pedro Hospital (Poblacian District, Davao city, Davao del sur)

  3. Davao Doctors Hospital (Poblacian District, Davao city, Davao del sur)

  4. Broikenshire Hospital (Mandapo, Davao city, Davao del sur)

  5. Southern Philippines Medical Centre (Bajada, Davao city, Davao del sur)

All of this is available at an MBBS in Philippines fees of just INR 22-23 Lakh for the entire programme.
