Top Ten Medical Schools
Facing interviews is an integral part of the admission process conducted by the various medical schools. Medical study in Czech Republic has a long tradition dating from the 14th century, with the first medical school starting at the First Faculty of Medicine, Charles University in Prague in 1348, making it the 11th oldest in the world and highly prestigious.
As stated above, I would suggest graduating from a foreign medical school, take the USMLE’s, and then apply as an International Medical Graduate (in that case, however, it is extremely challenging to be accepted to any of the more competitive specialties).
The Dominicans, under the Spanish Government, established the oldest medical school in the Philippines in 1871, known as the Faculty of Medicine and Surgery (at that time was one with the University of Santo Tomas Faculty of Pharmacy , also considered the oldest pharmacy school in the Philippines) of the Pontifical and Royal University of Santo Tomas in Intramuros, Manila.
I have been bemoaning the lack of responsibility for medical students since I became an intern in 2007, when I started a new system and saw that the medical students weren’t allowed to write progress notes on anyone who wasn’t postop, and weren’t allowed to write ANY H&Ps.
In fact, even before medical school, I was already busy with the preparations (moving in, enrollment, etc.), that I was not even able to finish my bucket list ( 10 Things I want to do before medical school starts ). Sad as it may be, the bucket list’s accomplishment remains a dream.
