Postgraduate Medical Education in Philippines

Schools of medicine in the Philippines are graduate schools offering the Doctor of Medicine (M.D.) degree. The M.D. is a four-year professional degree program which qualifies the degree holder, after a one-year postgraduate rotating internship, to take the licensure exam for medical doctors in the country. The first five medical schools in the Philippines were opened under the University of Santo Tomas, University of the Philippines, Southwestern University, Manila Central University in 1949 and Far Eastern University in 1952. Today, these five schools are still in existence with the two oldest and the fifth oldest schools as the three most prestigious in the Philippines being the recipient of the Center of Excellence Award in Medical Education in 1986 by the Department of Education, Philippine Board of Medical Education and the Association of Philippine Medical Colleges. The University of the Philippines and the University of Santo Tomas were also honored by CHED with the same award in 2005.

All I want to know is, where will it allow me to teach? Secondary schools? Or will it allow me to teach in a college? If not, what qualification would I need to teach in a college?
Thanks. (:

Technically a PGCE will allow you to teach any age and any subject regardless of what you train in. However I'd guess that the integrated PGCE will enable you to be a secondary school music teacher. Primary PGCE's enable you to teach all subjects at Primary level. Secondary PGCE's you have to choose a specialist subject (usually the subject of your degree). Further Ed requires a PGCftE. Give the music department a buzz and get them to clarify exactly what PGCE it is.
For further ed take a look at the GTTR ( - it's UCAS but for PGCE's. A quick look shows that Birmingham City University …
