As a student of GCM, I experienced mixed emotions with a lot of fun and memorable moments. I felt scared during my first day of school, but when I got there people were so kind and approachable. I realized I’m in the right place. The place where I get to find new friends and the place where I learn new things and helps me prepare to become a good and responsible doctor in the future. Here at GCM, you get to have fun while studying. You can choose organizations you like to join. Also, you don’t have to worry where to eat, there’s ATIS inside the campus, “the savior to all kagutom“. GCM is known to be a medical school which has a lot of international students coming from India, Thailand, Nigeria, Africa, and many more but that doesn’t hinder us from communicating with each other. Our admins are also approachable and will make you feel that you are always welcome. Everything is commendable and I’m happy that I chose to study here at the University of the Visayas-Gullas College of Medicine.
I’m happy and proud that GCM is really rising. The development was so satisfying to see. If you’re a student here in GCM, you don’t have to worry about the view and the air you are breathing. Especially now that the school is having a renovation that will make the school’s view one of a kind since it is mixed with nature and modern designs.
To the aspiring medical students, I warn you that the life you are choosing now is kind of toxic. Studying medicine is toxic but satisfying. It molds you to become a doctor. Each day, you have to solve your own challenges and fight your own wants. You really would have to sacrifice things. But it will be so satisfying that at the end of the day, you will learn a lot and will be ready to continue to fight for your dreams. When things get heavy, always think positive and don’t forget to pray. When studying gets harder and harder and you feel like drowning, don’t hesitate to ask help from your seniors and even from your classmates. Share your ideas and help each other. Whenever you find yourself doubting how far you can go, just remember how far you have come. Furthermore, remember that the process you are making matters much more than you know. So heads up and don’t lose hope. All will be worth it at the end.
