WHAT IS THE CURRICULUM OF MBBS IN THE PHILIPPINES

WHAT ARE THE SUBJECTS TAUGHT DURING 1ST YEAR MBBS IN PHILIPPINES?

MBBS in the Philippines is gaining popularity by the day. During the 6 or 6 and a half years, students are taught everything from theory to practice in all areas. If you talk about the MBBS Program in the Philippines, it is broadly divided into 2 parts – BS and MD. In a way, MD abroad is equivalent to MBBS in India, although some people might confuse it with the post-graduate degree in medicine in India. However, the graduate program of medicine in the Philippines is called MD. 

 

In the first one and a half or two years, the students are entirely taught the Bachelors of Science or AB Psychology course. This is a pre-medical course, and the duration for an Indian student can be 1.5 or 2 years, depending upon the university you have taken admission in.

NMAT is required once you are through with the pre-medical course so that you can easily take up admission in the MD course.

Talking about the subjects taught during the BS course, these are the few subjects and areas covered during the first year if you opt for BS Biology-

Cell Biology
Bio Chemistry
General Zoology
General Botony
Biostatistics
Med- Entomology
Genetics
Ethics

However, if you wish to go for AB Psychology, then the subjects would differ. The areas covered broadly are-

  • General Psychology
  • Psychological Statistics
  • Developmental Psychology
  • Personality
  • Psychological Assessment
  • Psychology and Counseling
  • Human Behaviour in Organization

The subjects could vary a little bit, depending upon the college and their curriculum.

Students who are through with their BS and have appeared for the entrance test and cleared their MD Course often have this question of what all areas are covered during 1st year of MD course.


Here is a list of areas or subjects that are taken care of during the first year:

  • Biochemistry– 2 semesters
