Medical Students Summit Now On Its 8th Year


Medical Students Summit

Still grappling with your fear of medschool application or your dream of becoming the next Dr. House, register for the 8th Medical Students Summit and set out into the world of Philippine medicine!

Ever since its inception, Medical Students Summit has been a platform for medical students and aspirants alike to mingle, ask and get answers. It stands out because it is a joint effort by the various medical student councils in the country under the Association of Philippine Medical Colleges – Student Network (APMC-SN). For this year’s summit, it focuses on the accomplishments of Filipino medical innovators, successful Philippine health programs and the broad possibilities for future doctors, thus, the theme “Victories of Philippine Medicine”.

Medical Students Summit is open to everyone who is interested in everything medicine. This year’s 8th Medical Students Summit is going to be held at the University of Santo Tomas, Espana, Manila on November 9-10, 2013. Here’s what to look forward to on the two-day event:


Befriending the Monsters of Medschool Application

Can’t make up your mind which med school you want to hinge your MD dreams to, or simply scared to give the application a try, MSS offers you a chance to befriend the monsters of medschool application process through its medical school orientation for undergraduate students. Better known as Talk Medisina, this progam lets participating medical schools showcase their respective institutions and medical programs (i.e. Intarmed, MD-PhD, etc.) so undergraduates can come up with informed decision as to which school best fitsthem.


Talks from Medicine Luminaries

To jumpstart a medical student’s semester and inspire new generation of doctors, speakers with known contributions to medicine or any individual associated with the theme “Victories of Philippine Medicine” will share viewpoints in plenary lectures concerning local excellence in their profession.If you’re after ‘real’ medicine and medicine that is at its best, then this session definitely is for you. Along with this, there would be parallel sessions to update medical students on new equipments and techniques. Here, they would also exhibit medical specializations where participants can inquire on the various fields of interest and medical advances in the local setting.

Of course, all these talks and seminars would be a blur without something to cap off the day so MSS prepared a Socials Nightwhere buffet dinner will be served. Who says med students could not have a little fun, huh?



In the gathering of undeniably impressive people, nothing would be more exciting than a showcase of their intelligence and passion.Thus in keeping with this, MSS will hold 3 events, namely: Research Competition, Regional Medical Quiz Bee and The Search for the Advocacy Project of the Year all to recognize the capacity of medical students for excellence in research, academic propensity and socio-civic responsibility. So get those brain cells firing! Who knows those might get you to winning the coveted cash prizes!
