ABOUT Electronic National Internship Program System (E-NIPS)

The Electronic National Internship Program System (E-NIPS) aims to support the implementation of the medical internship program spearheaded by the Association of Philippine Medical Colleges Inc (APMC) and its partner medical schools and hospitals.

It is an online technology with the following functionalities:

  • Medical students can apply for internship, query available hospital slots and track the status of internship application
  • Medical schools can electronically forward the internship requirements to APMC.
  • Tracking of phases of internship from application to completion of internship program
  • Hospitals can record their assessment of the internship applicants and select accepted candidates via E-NIPS
  • Email notifications are sent out on phases such as completion of requirement, conduct of matching and release of internship results
  • Generation of dynamic reports, graphs, charts and certificates pertaining to the internship program.
