Telemedicine is a type of consultation given by physicians that utilizes technology to give diagnosis and treatments to patients at a certain distance. During this pandemic, many services are either unavailable or too risky to perform, but others, particularly those that need diagnostics, might need to be performed even without physical contact. In order to answer these problems, telemedicine could be used to carry out the procedure. The purpose of this study is to determine how the De La Salle Medical and Health Sciences Institute (DLSMHSI) Medicine students feel about the use of telemedicine in various medical professions. This research will also take into account medicine students' convenience and comfort, as well as the cost of consultation and diagnosis accuracy of Telemedicine. An online survey was conducted to determine the preferences and perception of medicine students on telemedicine. Most of the participants preferred “In-Person Consultation” that is 92.59%. Majority of the respondents will recommend telemedicine to their peers and family members and majority of them found themselves giving telemedicine consultations in the future. Telemedicine should not be considered a replacement for in-person consultations; rather, it should be considered an alternative or a choice.
