Department of Health (DOH) will once again offer scholarships for medicine and midwifery for the academic year 2018-2019 to prospective students willing to work in public health after graduation.
You may check the list of partner schools and universities in your respective region that offer the scholarships below.
The DOH scholarship programs will cover tuition costs and provide partial support for the many additional expenses accrued when studying, including book allowance, uniform allowance, lodging and transportation allowance, and medical insurance under PhilHealth.
The DOH Medical Scholarship Program includes all four years of medical education, including summer immersion programs prior to the second and third years of medicine, and one year of post-graduate internship.

The DOH Midwifery Scholarship Program covers all four years of a Bachelor of Science in Midwifery. In return, scholars will be expected to work for two years in public health for every year of schooling shouldered by the DOH.
Priority will be given to prospective students from low-income families, from geographically isolated and disadvantaged areas or from the country’s twenty poorest municipalities and cities, and from indigenous communities or the national minorities; dependents of government employees and active police and military personnel; victims of calamities; and Barangay Health Workers and traditional birth attendants. Prospective students should apply directly to any of the DOH’s partner schools listed below; only those who have been admitted to their school of choice will be eligible for the scholarship.
The DOH Medical and Midwifery Scholarship Programs aim to decrease the stark inequity in health human resource distribution within the Philippines by ensuring the presence of service-oriented human resources for health in identified priority areas, usually geographically-isolated rural areas.
