As an ELAM graduate who was fortunate enough to avail of all of MEDICC's different programs (Mnisi Fellowship to cover costs for board exams, Community Connections to facilitate summer rotation placements in U.S. clinics and hospitals, Pathway to Residency mentorship for guidance in the residency application process), I can attest to how invaluable the support that MEDICC provides to ELAM students and graduates has been for me. The fact that everyone who applied to residency in my graduating class (Class of 2014) all matched successfully into a residency program on the first try shows how MEDICC's different pipeline programs contributed to a successful match season and resulted in our successful transition into residency programs in the U.S. that predominantly work with the most underserved communities. I hope MEDICC continues with the great work they are doing locally and internationally!
A great group of people working to increase medical education and exchange above politics. Yes, the exchange trips are quite expensive, especially for independent researchers and scholars. However, the lectures were excellent, delivered by people whose devotion to healthcare is unmistakeable, and the sites we visited were informative and diverse. The traveling MEDICC staff works tirelessly to bridge the experiences of both visitors and hosts. This was one of my most memorable trips ever.
I travelled to Cuba this year with MEDICC to learn about the Cuban healthcare system. Everyone involved with MEDICC was very informative and helpful. The opportunities we had to engage in exchanges with Cuban healthcare professionals were excellent. MEDICC does wonderful work sharing the Cuban healthcare system with a broader audience.
I am also very impressed with MEDICC's program of engagement with medically underserved communities in the US and with students receiving their medical education through ELAM.
I am a 2016 medical school graduate of the Escuela Latinoamericana de Medicina. Thankfully to MEDICC's Mnisi Fellowship, Community Connections programs, and residency outreach programs, I have successfully passed all USMLEs during my medical school education years, received essential U.S. clinical experience, and become a competitive candidate for this year's residency match season. I am forever grateful to MEDICC's dedicated and loving staff.
I spent a month in Cuba recently, looking into the national Health Services Distribution, ELAM, and Medical Training in the country. It is terrific, especially taking into consideration, the difficulties the US had put in their way. At present, with the changing attitudes of the US, one can only imagine how much more can be done. MEDICC has played no small part in this developement, and should you be considering exploring what is being done in the field in Cuba, I can heartedly recommend using them as aprimary resource.
MEDICC, through it's journal MEDICC Review, has brought valuable information about Cuban health care organization and advance in medical research that benefit all of us.
MEDICC provides individuals with an opportunity to learn about advances in public health, biomedical research and medical care in Cuba. Much of the research and innovations in health care organization are transferrable to other countries. This is even more valuable with recent changes in the US relationship with Cuba. MEDICC uses its resources very wisely.
Too expensive to go to cuba tru your non profit

I had the opportunity to travel with MEDICC to explore and learn about CUBA and their health care system. The information, resources and exposure was incredible. I so enjoyed learning about the medical school and the opportunities for dedicated practitioners to become physicians in their communities. I continue to promote this program whenever appropriate. Would love to be a board member and or work for this organization.

My research educational experience while visiting CUBA to learn more about their health and medical program was enlightening. The Cuban health professionals were welcoming and provided such a wealth of information about the wonderful work of MEDICC. I am definitely going to return . Currently studying Public Health Policy in a doctoral program at Walden and this experience will lend a rich perspective to include in my research work.
Saw this organization in action on a trip to Cuba. Amazing work they are doing taken care of the population in need of health care. Dedicated, caring organization doing fabulous work in Cuba.
This organization helps physicians who have studied medicine in Cuba to practice medicine in the USA. Many of these physicians have very limited financial resources and are unfamiliar with the grueling and expensive process to practice medicine here. MEDICC helps these doctors in every step of this process and has been responsible for giving us an indirect look at Cuba (since we get to interact with the US doctors that Cuba produced). Since I have interacted with many of them, I can say that US doctors who are trained in Cuba are very smart, hard-working, dedicated, bilingual, and want to work in the medically-underserved communities in the USA. These skills make them an asset to their US patients and a model to all of their medical colleagues. Without MEDICC, we would not have these outstanding physicians in our medical system.
