^thanks sis! Yes, I'll keep that in mind :) Sana makita ko agad yung right barkada for me. Yung mga passionate sa pag aaral nila para mas ganahan ako.. Madalas kasi pag di sila ganun kainteresado mag aral, mag isa na lang ako nag aaral. Medyo nakakalungkot :(

@Fourever: goodluck sa med school. Okay lang iyan, welcome naman dito ang mga medical students. :) My advice is take one step at a time and enjoy. :) Don't worry, you'll find your friends/study buddies & don't forget to relax/chillax once in awhile.

Is it difficult to transfer to a different program during residency?

^ I don't know. I guess it depends on where you're transferring and the program.

^sis she can start taking 3rd yr december batch.. 2 yrs lang kasi validity ng nmat :)

May brains review center saka piccs ba yun near ust. Pero ako self study lang mas mataas nakuha than most of my blockmates na nag review center.. Basta focus lang pag nag rereview. Mahirap sa review centers kasi mabilis ang pacing tapos pansin ko minsan nagkakatamaran mga classmates ko pumunta, that's for me ha.. Yung reviewers, bumili ako pero page 1 lang nabasa ko kasi di ko naintindihan. Masyadong complicated ang tanong. Mas ok na yung HS books at yung books nung college aralin.. Basic principles ang inaral ko then ok na ako..

Ask mo na lang daughter mo kung saan sya mas makakapag aral :) and good luck!

hi doctors,

I'm currently in a rut right now. Unfortunately, I failed Pathology. It was rather a big surprise for me dahil ok naman un grades ko during the 1st and 2nd sem, although bumaba lang ako nun 2nd sem, i just need to pass the final exams to pass the subject, unfortunately, I wasn't able to do so since I studied Pharma instead, knowing that I was already safe for Patho. So there, I took the remedials tapos, I was short of 5 correct answers to finally pass the subject. I had my paper rechecked and talked to the department chair to be reconsidered since patho lang un maiiwan ko, sadly, my appeal wasn't granted since the minimum passing level has been set prior to the remedials. As of this time, I'm really confused if i should go on with my studies. I have this worries like may tatanggap ba sa akin na reputable hospitals for PGI and residency, considering my really really bad set of grades, plus, up to now, I'm still way too afraid of doing iv insertions and phlebotomy, so much for my fear of needles. I cannot help myself but wonder if am I just pushing myself to go into the field? I'm really confused. Appreciate any insights on this. thanks.

PS.pre-med was psych so i have zero knowledge on the clinical application part of medicine.

^ Hi sis. I'm sorry to learn about your fate in Pathology. Failing in 1 subject is not the end of the road and stopping your medical studies is not the best solution. If you quit, you'll disappoint your parents instead of promising them that you'll do better. I have a lot of colleagues who have failed in 1-2 subjects during their academic years (& consequently repeated 1 yr) but that didn't stop them from still pursuing their dreams of becoming a physician. Now, they're licensed physicians. Some PGI and residency programs do not look deep into the transcript of records (unless you pursue a specialty training related to your failed subject before). You'll learn the skills of IV insertions, phlebotomy during clerkship. Lahat naman dumaan sa takot, kaba. Don't worry, matututunan mo rin iyan. For now, concentrate/focus on redeeming yourself. Saka mo na isipin yung IV insertions, phlebotomy, etc. One step at a time.

You start to learn the clinical application of Medicine by 3rd yr. Then you'll learn more pagdating ng 4th year and beyond.

Goodluck to you and huwag kang bibitaw sa pangarap mo na maging duktor.

^thanks doc, your words somehow resurrected that dying hope in me. My mom wants me to continue studying despite of what had happened. I hope and pray that I would be able to redeem myself and work on the lack of skills and dexterity, and to overcome my fear of needles and other application/s thanks again:)

Hi sissies! I'm officially enrolled na and my first day in medschool is on June 4.. Actually that week, puro orientation kami so next 2nd week talaga ng june start ng classes.. Hehe! Ano ba ang mga dapat inaaral ko ngayon to prepare myself? Like lahat ba ng muscles at bones dapat kabisaduhin ko na? And the structures in biochem? Pati ba mga positions sa anatomy? Sorry sissies.. Anxious lang talaga ako and excited at the same time :D THANKS!
