To the Editor:—
Dr. Bowers' communication is indeed very timely and informative. We in the Philippines are indeed grateful for the time and effort that Dr. Bowers spent in collecting and putting together quite accurately the various facets which mold the Filipino medical student. I would like, however, to take this opportunity to update your readers, in the briefest possible manner, on recent developments in medical education in the Philippines.There are presently seven medical schools, five of which are in and around Manila and two in the city of Cebu in one of the islands south of Luzon.Of these seven medical schools, only one is tax-supported; one is administered by a religious corporation; one is private and organized on a nonstock and not-for-profit basis; and four are private and organized on a stock corporation basis.Under the joint efforts of the Council of Deans of Philippine Medical Schools
