Hi there. I just graduated medicine myself and am taking my postgraduate internship. I see from your profile that your in the philippines so let me recommend my school, Pamantasan ng LUngsod ng Maynila. Since its founding, it has never ranked lower than 5th among the medschools in the philippines and usually has passing rates of 90 and% and up despite being poorly funded. The tution fee is around 30,000 per semester. The only setback is the lack of facilities so sometime you'll have to mcgyver things up. Plus for your junior internship, you gain a lot of skills at the sametime serving the poor. Other good schools would be UP, UST, UERMMC and FEU though UST, UE and FEU have tuition fees way beyond my budget

Yes very much so. Time is very precious for a medical student and as much as possible you want to develop the habit of reading daily. The amount of information that you have to know is really vast and sometimes its very tiring. Medicine isnt for the faint of heart. There are alot of sacrifices if you really want to be a good doctor.Personally, my social and romantic life suffered before I received my MD. And there are times when you will literally shed tears for unrewarded efforts.(i.e doing your best bur still flunking. But as i look back at it, i think it was worth it. Its a good feeling when people come to you for help and you ,having worked diligently through medschool, know what to do. The hardships shouldnt discrourage as it will all be worth it later on.

Oh yeah i almost forgot, it takes 4 years to complete your doctorate, The 1st 3 years will be spent studying, followed by the junior internship of 1 year. You then graduate then take your post graduation internship, then take the boards. After that you can take a specialty, if you really want one.
