Due to the high cost of medical education, its a tough decision for me to transfer to a new medical school..
I finished 1st year medicine in one of the prestigious schools in Mindanao and is currently planning to enroll in SWU as second year med student..
The school here implemented a 5% increase in its tuition and other fees. Second year assessment reached 84,000 per semester as compared to SWU's 96,000 PER YEAR (48,000 per semester)..

With this, I decided that I will be continuing my studies in SWU to help my parents reduce their expenses. I know that with this decision entails a great deal of adjustment since I will be living alone for the first time. I know I can do it. I must.

To the present and past students of SWU-College of Medicine, can you please help me know what is it like to become a SWU med student?What must I know? What should I expect? Curriculum?How are the grades being computed?Types of exams?Are there daily quizzes?

These important things will greatly prepare me once I will be starting there..thanks a lot! (",) :rolleyes:

please visit SWU-MHAM College of Medicine Website: www.mhamedu.org

I think MHAM-CM has the lowest tuition fee among the 4 medical schools in Cebu.
The system of teaching there is purely Traditional method in the first year, sa second year may Case conference and presentation sa Pathology, pag third year pure traditional uli.

Though it is not one of the best schools of medicine but what really matters most is the student's dedication, the thirst for knowledge and his/her love to become a doctor.
And beside, hindi naman always kulelat ang MHAM, yun nga lang lenient kasi ang school sa mga students. They accept students na bumagsak sa ibang schools eh. ang dami pa foreigners galing sa ibat ibang bansa :crazy:

Plus, the school is continuously improving the facilities, visit nyo po at mai -impress ka sa Cadaver Collections and AVRs nila and the impressive faculty resumes, MHAM has been known as a Good institution for Obstetrics because the great "legend" of Ob is here, Dr. Rebecca Gucor, kahit mahina na sya, love nya parin magteach....(she is a UST graduate pala)

If you want to learn the Classic method of learning Physical diagnosis, wla nang dadaig pa kay Dr. Lorena Yu, 86 years old na pero nagtuturo parin :mrgreen:

MHAM got an impressive faculty in Patho, mga award winners lalo na ang chairman si Dr. Salillas, siya ang first Filipino to present a Cytology case sa World federation of Cytology sa Chile.

As i've said, kahit gaano pa ka impressive ang School mo, pero hindi naman ganun ka-stiff sa selection prhocess ng Students, eh siguro ganun parin ang kinalabasan diba? :blush:

Sa MHAM po parang wala naman silang cutoff, basta 850 and above ang added scores mo sa Biology and Verbal

Thanks. I am contacting them and hopefully I will get accepted soon.

I am debating between university of visayas also and am trying to make a decision between gullas and mham.

What do you all think would be a better choice if the goal would be to come back to USA?

Comparing between the two schools swu and gullas which have the most medical students?

Which have the most American students including fil-ams?

Any differences between the professors and their teaching methods?  I think they both teach traditionally…

if you really want to know which is better among the two med school that you mentioned then i would choose swu-mham but im not saying this is the best school in cebu,if you really want to enrol for medicine and you aim for the best then better choose CIM (cebu institute of medicine) but CIM is more costly compare to swu-mham, yeah you're right swu-mham uses traditional way of teaching, swu-mham has the biggest number of foreign students compare to UV. choose swu so that we can be classmate. im planning to proceed to medicine this coming june hopefully
