apmc internship matching round 3

1. Ano ba talaga yung matching na yan? Paano nalalaman ilang slots?

At the start of each year, hospitals apply for a certain number of slots for internship. Depende sa laki ng hospital, manpower na kailangan, facilities na meron sila, at number of consultants na pwede magturo ng PGIs, doon nasesettle kung ilang slots yung meron. Kung ilan yung slots na maapprove, yun yung dami ng interns na matatanggap nila. The goal is as much as possible, all hospitals who applied for intern slots will be given the number of interns they applied for.

 

Usually, nagdadagdag eventually ng slots if the institution will send a request to APMC to accommodate additional interns. Pero hindi assured na bibigyan sila kaagad. Kasi kawawa naman yung hospitals na wala. For some hospitals naman kasi, sobrang crowded na ng interns, so di na talaga pwede dagdagan.

 

Everytime may matching, automatic na lahat ng isinulat mo sa 1st, 2nd, and 3rd choice mo na hospital, isesend yung names mo sa kanila for deliberation. The hospitals will reply with a final list of interns na tatanggapin nila. If natanggap ka sa dalawa, doon ka papasok sa mas mataas mo na priority. With this, super walang sense yung ginagawa ng ibang incoming interns na pare-parehas yung 1st-3rd choice. Sayang yung chances mo na nakaapply ka sana simultaneously sa ibang hospitals. So please, wag na gawin β€˜to for this round. Kaya marami pa ring unmatched ngayon eh, maling akala. πŸ™

 

May forms sa APMC office. By tomorrow, nasend na din ng staff natin by courier lahat ng forms sa respective schools niyo, so pwede din naman na hintayin niyo nalang dyan if hindi kayo makakaluwas agad (for provincial schools). Kalma lang kayo dyan. πŸ™‚

2. Kailan yung 3rd Matching?

Third round of matching started yesterday, May 23. So if wala ka pang hospital for internship, or if hindi mo pa nakita yung name mo sa first two rounds, wala kang choice kundi magapply for this round. Walang deadline yung 3rd matching, however, everytime umaabot sa certain number yung nagaapply for a certain hospital, sinesend na nila agad for processing and deliberation nung hospital na yun. So mas maaga ka mag-apply, mas malaki chance mo mapasok. For this round, our goal is to fill all slots per hospital as soon as possible

 

We received reports na may nagkakalat na: β€œnatapos na yung 3rd matching and results are being encoded na”. Nope. Not true. Please stop spreading rumors like this. Sobrang inconvenient for everyone.

3. Paano magmatching for this round?

TWO options!

 

First option – Punta kayo ng APMC, tapos fill out ng forms ulit. Submit the following: Transcript of Records, passport size picture, and Certificate of Eligibility from your Dean na may rank niyo sa graduating batch. πŸ™‚ So pagpunta niyo ng APMC, papipiliin kayo ng 1st-3rd choice na school. Regularly, sinesend na ng staff natin yung mga nagaapply pero hospital, so mas maaga kayo magapply, mas okay. If wala nang slots sa gusto niyo applyan, hindi tatanggapin ng staff natin yung application form niyo. Results will be published as soon as magreply yung bawat hospital. Hindi na isang bagsakan yung release ng results.

 

Second option – Punta kayo sa hospital na gusto niyo and apply as walk-in. Hindi lahat ng hospital tumatanggap ng walk-in, so confirm niyo nalang bago kayo pumunta. Each hospital, may kanya-kanyang set of requirements for walk-in. If sabihin nila na tanggap na kayo sa hospital nila, eh di happy! Hingi kayo ng certificate or letter of acceptance, tapos punta sa APMC para maprocess yung application niyo. Sure na pasok na kayo nun. Magcocoordinate nalang yung APMC sa hospital kung totoo ba na natanggap kayo.

4. Paano pag ayoko na sa kung saan ako namatch?

Pwede naman magparematch! πŸ™‚ Punta lang sa APMC office personally! Okay?

 

Ang mangyayari, parang sasali ka sa third round of matching. If namatch ka sa gusto mo lipatan, automatic na iuunmatch ka nila sa dati mong napiling hospital.

 

Nakausap ko na din yung staff tapos nag-agree na sila sa arrangement ngayon… hindi mo kailangan magpaunmatch muna bago ka mag-apply sa lilipatan mo. That way, sure na back-up mo na yung hospital kung saan natanggap ka na dati. Wag na matakot na mag-endup na wala kang slot sa kahit anong hospital!


Good luck batchmates! Sana magkainternship hospital na kayo! πŸ™‚

 

PS. Naglagay ako nung list ng hospitals na may additional slots pa. Minsan nadadagdagan yung tinatanggap, pero as of now, yan lang talaga. Wag muna umasa sa wala. :)) More than 500 pa ata yung wala pang internship hospital so good luck. If may questions pa, comment lang. πŸ˜€ Hindi pala nagrereflect sa numbers yung mga nawawalang slots tuwing tumatanggap yung schools ng walk-in. Minsan kasi hindi nila iniinform agad yung APMC office. Kunwari minsan nakalagay may 10 slots pa sa photo, pero tumanggap na pala sila ng 10 na walk-in… so pag tumawag kayo, sasabihin nila wala na. Confirm niyo nalang din through the phone yung data kung kaya. πŸ™‚

 

PS ulit. May conference yung APMC bukas tapos matagal na na-set na sarado sila dapat (ONE day lang yung conference so bukas lang sila sarado, wag magpanic!). Pero dahil sa dami ng nag-aayos ng papers, nakausap na natin yung staff at pumayag silang magbukas nalang sila tomorrow… pero skeletal unit lang nagpapatakbo ng office. Magbaon ng pasensya if bukas kayo pupunta, for sure mahaba yung pila dahil konti lang yung nagaasikaso sa matching.

 

PS last na. Sorry sa cellphone ko lang tinype lahat ito. πŸ™ Paumanhin sa typo at informal na tone. Huhu. Thanks! Ineedit edit ko siya paminsan pag may nakakairita akong word na ginamit hahahah sobrang conversational.
