Davao Medical School Foundation
The Davao Medical School Foundation (DMSF) was established in July 1976 in response to the recognition of the lack of doctors serving rural communities and lack of specialist in urban centers of Mindanao. Its College of Medicine was thus the first such college to be set up in Mindanao and is dedicated to providing medical education and training of the highest order, leading to the provision of effective medical care in both rural and urban communities.
A consortium, the members of which are the Ateneo de Davao University, Brokenshire Memorial Hospital, the Development of Peoples’ Foundation, San Pedro Hospital and San Pedro College, operates the Foundation. It is registered with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) as a non-stock, non-profit organization and is approved by the Commission on Higher Education (CHED). In addition to the College of Medicine, DMSF operates a College of Dentistry, an Institute of Primary Health Care (IPHC) and a Center for Education, Research and Development in Health (CERDH).

Dr. Vaidehi Desai Sihah
I am the first student of the first batch of DMSF, and my goal was to became a very compentent and efficient Doctor. What i found was that the syllabus of DMSF is conceptual rather than just mugging up the books, and i could gain a good exposure to the practical life of a doctor while studying at DMSF. I believe these were what helped establish a good Doctor in me.
The clinical exposure, the academics everything was very apt, brilliant even, for me to inculcate them in my personal zone, When i came back after my graduation, When i stood among the graduates who done their study in India, I was as good as them and in some parts i was even better than them.
We were having group discussion related to patients since the first year itself and the biggest advantage to me was we had 1 year of clinical rotations at different hospitals, which made me very adaptive to work in any kind of hospital be it government hospital with heavy work load or in private sector hospital
I ranked 2nd in FMGE screening test June-2018, this became possible because of the Quality Education. provided by the best faculties. DMSF gave me the better foundation to became a doctor with good hands-on practice during my clerkship, Thanks to DMSF.
In addition to the excellent teaching and Training offered by DMSF, the DMSF- Pune offers MCI screening test coaching & training. I am thankful to Transworld for these value added services.
I was a little hesitant at first to travel abroad to study. The staff and counselors really helped me understand every bit of information i needed to know. My experience at the college in Davao has been one of constant learning it has not only helped me accademically but has made me more confident overall.
Living and studying at Davao Medical School has been one of the highlights of my life. Transworld has truly made the dreams of many students to study abroad, come true. I couldn't have found any better university or destination to pursue my career in medicine other than DMSF in phlippines
Studying at Davao Medical School added another level to my college experience here in the philippines. The best and most up to date infrastructure and amenities i have truly evolved into a different individual equipped with medical knowledge and skill who can face the world of medicine confidently
