What are the top medical schools in PH?

The House Committee on Higher and Technical Education has formulated a list of the Philippines' leading schools for doctors of medicine.

Committee chairman Pasig City Rep. Roman Romulo said the list was “based on the outstanding performance of their graduates” in the last Physician Licensure Examinations administered by the Professional Regulation Commission (PRC).

At least 80 percent of the examinees who graduated from the top schools passed the last two licensure examinations.

The following schools made the cut:

University of the Philippines-Manila (100%);
Pamantasan ng Lungsod ng Maynila (100%);
Ateneo de Manila University (100%);
Cebu Institute of Medicine (100%);
University of Santo Tomas (98.88%);
University of the East Ramon Magsaysay Memorial Medical Center (96.80%);
Cebu Doctors’ University (95.74%);
West Visayas State University-La Paz (95.29%);
Xavier University-Cagayan de Oro (93.94%);
Cagayan State University-Tuguegarao (86.36%); and
University of St. La Salle-Bacolod (85.71%)

According to the PRC, around 74.65 percent, or 2,259 out of 3,026 examinees, passed the Physician Licensure Examinations in February 2014 and August 2013.

Dr. Ananias Hibo, Jr. is already a doctor but, apparently, he has dreamed of being a lawyer for the longest time.
