SCOPE Spain Anecdote

Dear AMSA Philippines, here is an anecdote from our first out of three SCOPE exchange students going to Spain this season.

"My last day in Hospital Infantil Nino Jesus (spain's National pediatric hospital, also the second oldest in Europe)

The department prepared a lunch for me and everyone sent their well wishes, it was so heartwarming. The department head even quipped that they would love to have more Filipino med students around. (And that if ever I wanted to pursue a residency there, he'd already accept me hahaha)
Overall it was a great learning experience. Sobrang hi-tech and a little too defensive medicine, well they have the resources anyway. But I will forever remember what Dr. Escribano said that "While European hospital have more technology and access to advancement, wherever you are, a pediatrician's greatest tool will always be gentleness" - Gelo Apostol (ACSIS-ASMPH)



  1. My brother is a doctor and in his spare time, he indulges in shooting and hunting. Lately, I heard some talks on muzzleloader scopes and it was quite interesting hearing this. Although I'm ignorant on these things, I've learned a lot nevertheless, and doing a Google search revealed that there are a lot of sophisticated scopes around. Here's one site that has good reviews on these scopes. See the link:

  3. Binoculars can fog up like a car windscreen on a rainy day and when they do you won't be able to see a thing.

  4. Most of the time I don’t make comments on websites, but I'd like to say that this article really forced me to do so. Really nice post! scopeinsider

  5. As we advance in research and development of these instruments, they grow larger in size with each new generation. It is every astronomer dream to have access to a high resolving power telescope, yet small enough to be portable.
