Future post-graduate interns, this is it!
Attached is the announcement of the first round of internship matching for those starting internship on July 1, 2016. This was taken from the website of the Association of Philippine Medical Colleges Foundation Inc., along with this announcement:
The office of the National Internship Program has released the result of the July 1, 2016 1st round.
For those who have not been matched, enough application forms and the list of accredited hospitals with available slots for the SECOND ROUND of matching have been sent out to the schools. It is respectfully requested that all accomplished application forms and documents of each student or applicant pertaining to the National Internship Program be in our office not later than March 18, 2016.

If you didn’t know, most of us from PLM are required to do internship at the same hospital where we did our clerkship year, which is Ospital ng Maynila Medical Center. Right now, OM (as we like to call our home base), is undergoing a hospital-wide renovation, which means there will be no admissions or operations until the brand new hospital is ready.
I’m trying to be positive about this current arrangement, because 1) no admissions as we end our clerkship year is a very welcome surprise, and 2) an improved hospital facility is beneficial for patients and hospital staff alike. So yes – this should be good – for now.
Fast forward to July 1, 2016 and we start our internship in an empty hospital? That’s going to be a problem.
Hoping for the best!
P.S. I have a new blog post category – Intern in Charge. Hihihihi! 🙂
