COVID-19 has wreaked havoc on medical education and healthcare systems across the world. The illness has the potential to be lethal, and it poses difficulties for medically interested STEM students. Choosing an undergraduate medical course looks to be a considerable problem for grade 11 and 12 students at the moment. The main purpose of this study is to determine the factors influencing the impact of COVID-19 pandemic on students for choosing their medical undergraduate course. The data was collected via online survey questionnaire from 151 randomly selected Grade 11 or Grade 12 SHS students studying at DLSMHSI, using a descriptive quantitative research design. According to the findings of the survey, despite the fact that majority of the respondents' families are high-income earners, they nevertheless feel the effects of the COVID - 19 epidemic in their pursuit of a medical degree. For future researches, continue data collection by building an efficient technique for delivering the study questionnaire to a much greater number of respondents. Include more questions to the factors/subtopics to totally improve the dependability statistics. Include a much more detailed description of other criteria that influence Senior High School students in choosing a medical undergraduate path.
