DENTAL ELECTIVE

Program Overview

Dentists are responsible for keeping good oral health in the community. With that, aspiring dentists are required to be well-trained by getting indispensable experiences during their electives program. Many interns prefer to complete their electives in developing countries believing they will get wonderful experiences not only in the medical field but in their lives.

Global Electives Port Limited believes “experience is a great teacher.” With that, we help students to get connected with the professionals and ensure they learn crucial lessons by providing activities and allowing local hospital staff to guide them.

R

Garner experience in aspects of medicine beyond the core curriculum.

DESTINATIONS

PHILIPPINES – CAPIZ

Boracay, Coron, El Nido are among popular beaches in the Philippines. But for those who are seeking to venture a new place while on their internships, Capiz is one of the suggested places. It is known as a site of the famous coral-stone Santa Monica Church and its fun annual festival called Aswang Festival. Apart from amazing sceneries, students will be mesmerized with the rich culture. Global Electives Port chose this place as it has hospitals and LGUs named as outstanding partners when it comes to medical electives program.

Mombasa is probably the best place for those who are on soul-searching. Anyone will fall in love with its white beaches and coastal parks. Your journey will be more meaningful if you also continue your study through electives abroad. GEP chose this place as we find the health care system truly serves those who are in need. You will never feel out of place in this city as Kenya is a multilingual country.

Had the best time with Global Elective Port on our ventures in the Philippines. We were provided with not only excellent dental experience but also many fun activities. April and the staff went above and beyond to accommodate us and make us feel welcome throughout our stay. Couldn’t recommend dental and medical students to join the programme highly enough.
