    Please do read the article again and this scholarship are only for those who finished their pre-med courses and already taken their NMAT.

    I don't think that you are qualified at all.

    Thanks for your comment and hope that this will help clear things up.

    hi..i am an RN..a minimum wage earner at the moment..i've always had my dreams of becoming a doctor..and now that I'm working in the hospital, my eagerness to fulfill this dream has become stronger than ever..but i have no resources to make this dream come true.that's why i took BSN instead.was able to graduate in college because i attended a state sister scraped out every penny she had to send us to school.but now she has her own family and so does my other siblings.. A resident doctor told me about this scholarship. But I am worried that i might not get qualified for being an RN as it is. Please email me..i need a lot of a lot.. :-)

    hi Yza,
    All I can advice to you is to try to take the NMAT and if you pass the exam it will be easier for you to be qualified for the scholarship program for Medical students. I am sure you will pass it with flying colors.

    Nursing is also a pre-med course so it will be easier for you to review and take the NMAT. And while working you can still review for the exam and after you pass you can apply for the scholarship.

    Get back to me or leave a comment if there are any ways that I can give my advice to you.

    I really want to become a doctor. i am very inspired everytime I see doctors giving their orders, talking with their patients and mingling with the other health care members. by the way, I am a registered nurse, graduated from a university in ANgeles City, Pampanga. I graduated Cum Laude and was a consistent scholar and Dean's list. I studied so hard because I promised to myself that if there will be a chance like this or an opportuniy, I really want to pursue my dream to become a doctor but that wouldn't be easy for me because my family can't send me to a medical school due to financial constraints. My mom is a single-parent and the only one who worked hard for me to finish nursing. She is a government employee here in Angeles. I just searched yahoo about this scholarship and within me, I felt the eagerness to pursue my long-time dream. i hope someone could help me about it, Thank you and more power.

    by the way, I also searched about the NMAT but the test was done last April 5, 09. i just want to ask, if when will be the next date for NMAT?

    Hi Rose!
    As far as I know NMAT is scheduled once a year, the next NMAT would then be April next year again.

    This will be a good news for you so you can review longer for the exam.

    Good Luck!!

    I just met a medical student and asked for some information. There is a good news, MNAT exams are given twice a year one in December and the other is in April.

    Good Luck!

    I'm currently a 4th year BS Biology student. My parents are both employees of DPWH. I havent taken the NMAT yet, but planning to this December. I would like to know if this scholarship is granted to those who are going to study medicine this school year, 2009-2010 only. I will be graduating next year, and planning to proceed to medicine in any school in Metro Manila.

    I would just like to know if this scholarship is still given to aspiring medical students next year??

    Hoping for your response..

    Thank you and God bless.. :)

    This is an ongoing program of the DOH and PCSO and I think the scholarship will cover the next few years. Try to contact the telephone numbers posted above for more information.

    Good Luck!

    good day
    I am currently a medical student.. I want to know if the program accepts lateral entries. If it does, can students who have failed one subject before their application for the scholarship still be a candidate for the scholarship program?

    Greetings of Peace and Joy!
    I'm a 3rd year BA Psychology student at the University of the Philippines-Cebu. I just want to ask if I am still qualified after I graduate in this program given that my parents are neither Barangay Health Workers, government
    employees.Moreover, is this a first come first serve based scholarship?
    Looking forward to your positive response.

    the scholarship program given by the department of health has been stopped by our government. It is very frustrating to know coz I wanted to be a doctor eventhough that I am a registered nurse and been practicing my profession for 5 years.. Eventhoguh that I have a great opportunity waiting for me to our in other countries however my passion is to be a medical doctor. Hoopefully that you will bring back the scholarship that you imparted to the previous years that availed your good offer..
