Yoder noted that “The media continually presents messages to the public concerning health care issues.”[1] A good teaching and learning about the social media in clinical (both medical and dental education) is very important.[2] Spallek et al. noted that “careful timing is not only important for optimal learning but can prevent inappropriate use of social media as students are introduced to novel situations.”[2] It should be noted that the specialist in medical and public health media is actually in need medical care and public health service. Specific training is needed. However, in many countries, the limited number of specialist in this field to serve the public health can be seen. The important concern is the perception of the pre-university secondary school student to this specific university education. In Thailand, a developing country, medical media is a new thing and the specific training on medical and public health media has just been started for a few years. Here, the authors survey the perception of 121 rural secondary school students from several secondary schools in Surin province Thailand towards the university education on the specific degree on medical media. According to the survey, the students rated their interest on the medical media and further university education on medical media in the medium level. This can imply the trend that medical media is still a subject of interest for the new generation in the community. Development and implementation of a good university education system to serve the public health need is very important.
