Last August 21, 2008, a group of promising juniors had their chance to visit a small hospital in Makati as part of their Xelect class. These students joined the Introduction to Medicine electives course offered by no less than our alumni association president, Dr. Kelly Salvador, M.D.
The students were given an exclusive tour of M-Tech Hospital in Buendia, Makati. They started with the Radiology Department where the kids saw the X-Ray Machine, then the MRI before heading to the laboratories.
They also got a glimpse of a patient taking a stress test and using the ECG Machine to check for any heart problems as well as people in therapy in the Orthopedics Department.
The students were fortunate to be able to walk in the shoes of a doctor for just one afternoon during their Xelect classes. Who knows, maybe one of them will be your doctor someday.
