Me and my partner Jessie Zhu decided to go with Global Electives Port for our medical elective in Roxas City. We are normally based in Brisbane, Australia.

We cannot recommend them enough. You’ll be well and truly looked after by April and her partner Nino – it honestly felt like they were our family in the Philippines. They will look after your every need, and will ensure you get to have the elective exactly as you would want it. The hospital placement was also fantastic. The doctors are extremely kind and friendly towards medical students.

Overall, GEP receives the highest recommendation. We really did have an amazing experience.

Hope to see you soon April & Nino!

Had an amazing 2 weeks volunteering in the Philippines with GEP – would thoroughly recommend any dental/medical students wanting hands on experience to do this! April and her team went above and beyond to make us feel welcome as well as to ensure we did everything we wanted! Thanks again!

April and her family made our dental elective an incredible experience. With regards to the dental side, it was organised perfectly. It allowed us to visit the local university where we assisted lectures that educated children, visited the mayor and met other dental students, but most importantly permitted us to make a difference in the local community by being able to treat people from all different parts of Capiz.

April’s family welcomed us with open arms and really made us feel part of the family. They provided us with lovely food everyday, organised transport, trips, tours and activities for us for when we weren’t doing dentistry. They went above and beyond what was needed and I would definitely highly recommend this to anyone looking for a quality hands on dental experience whilst wanting to being able to explore the city.

Myself and 2 friends organised our dental elective with GEP and I couldn’t fault it! The GEP staff worked hard throughout the 2 weeks we were with them for to make sure we had a lot of hands on experience and a variety of things to do! I would recommend to any students considering an elective in the Philippines.

Thanks again GEP for an unforgettable experience

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.

Had an unforgettable experience with April and her family in the Philippines on our dental elective, would definitely recommend for any students looking to experience hands on work in the area and the hospitality we had as a group of 4 students was amazing, thank you!

The staff are brialliant! The best hands on experience with planned activities throughout the day with enough time to relax if you want to.

My experience of both dentistry in the Philippines and the country itself would not have been the same without the help and support provided by the team at global electives port. Myself and two others were made to feel so very welcome and safe at all times. If you are looking for dental experience in an environment very different to our own (e.g for an elective project) I couldn’t recommend it enough.

I had an elective in psychiatry at roxas city with global elective port last august. As someone who came a long way from Kuwait i did not get disappointed from all the hospitality and warm welcome i received from global elective family. They made the trip really helpful and the accommodation felt homey which is exactly what i hoped it would be. Philippines is such a great country with very nice people. I would totally recommend choosing global elective if you’re considering doing an international elective but because of the privacy rules of the country if you choose to do psychiatry, there arent much you can do since most of the time you wont be able to sit with the patient and even if you did theres the issue of language barrier, however, if you choose surgery or medicine electives, you’ll get to be more involved.
