Program of Learning
The Ateneo School of Medicine and Public Health (ASMPH) offers the first dual degree for physicians in the Philippines and Southeast Asia with an integrated roll out of the MD and MBA Program over a five year curricula. The Dual Degrees are the vehicle through which the school forms Outstanding Physicians, Dynamic Leaders and Social Catalysts. The integrated curricula hope to inculcate the values that we desire for our students.
ASMPH trains the best and brightest students to become future physician-leaders through three important teaching and learning strategies – interactive classroom learning, practical application and leadership formation.
First, students will be trained in the best possible way as clinicians, in the basics of medicine and curative care. Second, they will also be taught how to understand health and health systems from the wider vantage point of organizations, populations and society. In the third and fourth years, students’ application of clinical knowledge in the hospitals, clinics, communities and other health facilities is complemented by courses in management and in the understanding of social determinants that affect the public’s health.
At the end of the five-year Professional Phase, the graduate is awarded a degree of Doctor of Medicine and Master in Business Administration.
The ASMPH seeks to attract the best students who come from a number of undergraduate programs. All applicants will be assessed based on requirements such as NMAT scores, grades (QPI) and compliance with the different natural science and health cognate prerequisites. In order for applicants from the various disciplines seamlessly integrate into the professional phase of ASMPH, they will be provided with a preparatory session called the Transition Module conducted during the intersession prior to the opening of the first professional year in August. This module will familiarize the students with the various areas that ASMPH seeks to highlight, as well as introduce them to the values, culture and foundational principles that animate the school.
