Residency Training in Philippines

Residency Training in Philippines

The Medical Education Program in the Philippines is patterned after the American model. The Doctor of Medicine degree (Equivalent to MBBS) is given after the 4th year where students will undergo one year of postgraduate internship which is a requirement before taking the Licensure examination.

The graduate of the M.D. program (Equivalent to MBBS) is a primary physician who can go into the different types of medical practice or undergo further training and become a medical specialist.

After passing the Licensure Exam, graduates are eligible to enter the Residency Training program in fields of Specialization (Internal Medicine, Pediatrics, OB-Gyn) which is equivalent to MD/MS in INDONESIA and other countries.

The Residency training program in the Philippines is regulated by their respective Medical Societies. Each society has created an Accreditation Committee/Board whose goal is to assure the delivery of the highest quality medical care by implementing a structured residency program and a standard curriculum in order to ensure the competence of those undergoing training in different fields of specialization in the different training institutions nationwide.

The Residency Training Program in the Philippines is very structured with well defined curriculum in which the Philosophy, learning objectives, content, teaching-learning activities and assessment methods are clearly described, implemented, monitored regularly and evaluated annually for improvement.

ABOUT THE USMLE STEP 1

The USMLE Step 1 is a one-day computerized examination that assesses whether you comprehend and can apply important concepts of the basic sciences to the practice of medicine. Step 1 is commonly seen as the most challenging exam and is more comprehensive than the exams taken throughout medical school.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

The United States Medical Licensing Examination (USMLE) is a set of exams that assesses whether or not you’re ready to practice medicine.

The USMLE consists of 4 exams. Each Step is taken at a different point in your medical career and requires different levels of USMLE prep. Consider each USMLE Step its own individual exam that you’ll need to prepare for.

Step 1 consists of multiple-choice questions designed to measure basic science knowledge, including questions in anatomy, behavioral sciences, biochemistry, microbiology, pathology, pharmacology, physiology, and interdisciplinary topics, such as nutrition, genetics, and aging.

Step 1 is administered by appointment on a year-round basis. Step 1 is typically taken by U.S. medical students at the end of their second year of medical school, or international medical graduates who are already licensed doctors in their home countries, but wish to practice medicine in the United States. As an international medical graduate, you must first register with the ECFMG at www.ecfmg.org. After registering, you’ll receive an ECFMG identification number. To actually book your exams, you’ll need to book an eligibility period for your exam.

Step 1 is a one-day examination with seven 60-minute “blocks” administered in one 8-hour testing session; computer tutorial: 15 minutes; breaks: 45 minutes, self-scheduled

Step 1 consists of 280 multiple-choice questions, broken down into 7 one-hour blocks of 40 questions each.

WHAT KAPLAN MEDICAL STUDENTS ARE SAYING

The Kaplan Medical course had a significant impact on my scores, but more importantly it helped me develop a more profound and comprehensive understanding of the various fields in the basic sciences.
Suman R.
Step 1 Score - 253
Without the Kaplan Medical course, I wouldn't have scored that high. It helped me by creating a solid base of knowledge necessary for understanding and applying medical concepts during my preparation and most importantly, during the day I took Step 1.
Luis C.
Step 1 Score - 250
