Intarmed Program

The seven-year program of the UP College of Medicine which shortens the whole medical education by two years. The program aims to develop physicians whose knowledge and skills in medical science are equally matched by their sense of social responsibility and humaneness; provide the students with a clear perception of what the medical profession is by exposing them to medical knowledge and practice as early as the first two years in the program; evolve physicians who will not only be specialist in their fields, but who will also have the basic knowledge, skills, and attitudes to enable them to practice comprehensive health care and to work as member of a health team; and reduce the number of years of medical training and education to meet the immediate demand for medical manpower in the Philippines.
