On a radiography elective in our partner hospital in Iloilo, you'll observe the use of techniques that you might not have seen before. For example, X-rays are produced on film here as opposed to digitally – you’ll have the opportunity to use the hospital's darkroom to develop images, too. Outside the busy hospital wards you’ll enjoy your time off by relaxing on local beaches, or by hopping on a boat to whale-watch in emerald waters surrounding the island.
