In fact, the University has sent over 100 medical students for clerkship training at the Brooklyn Medical Center and Peninsula Hospital in New York and Jackson Park Hospital in Chicago. Thus, creating career opportunities abroad for young men and women.
In its almost more than 40 years of existence, OLFU has graduated more than 70,000 medical and allied medical health practitioners from all disciplines. Proof that makes OLFU a valuable contributor in the development of the medical and paramedical professions in the Philippines and abroad.

In small groups, students begin to meet patients in actual hospital setting where they are introduced to history taking and physical examination.
he third year involves didactic lectures on common diseases encountered in clinical practice as well as interesting or rare conditions. Pathophysiology is reviewed while clinical features, diagnostic approaches and principles of management are emphasized.
The fourth year or clinical clerkship is mainly spent in actual patient care with 3 affiliated Hospitals serving as the clinical laboratory. Hospital rounds and group discussions give the student a good perspective on bedside manners, diagnosis and management.
