Some colleges offering medical and allied medical courses have started their classes and many students can be seen rushing to their respective colleges.
One noticeable trend in local schools is the rise of medical school and medical technology enrollment. This may be due to the decrease in opportunities for nursing jobs abroad.
One college offering medical technology for example went from having single-digit number of sections to about 15 sections.
Meanwhile medical schools are also experiencing a resurgence in enrollment. There are even a few international medical students. Are more nursing graduates deciding also to enter medical school since they can hardly get a job opening abroad?
One thing's for sure. It will be a busy year for teachers of these schools.
