Review for MEDICAL EDUCATION COOPERATION WITH CUBA, Oakland, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

MEDICC is helping to change the face of healthcare in the U.S. Literally. They are the most important supporters of U.S. graduates of the Latin American School of Medicine, and have helped to create a support network for us as we return home to serve after graduation. Our students are selected by their willingness and ability to work in underserved areas upon graduation, and we are mostly students of color: African American, Latino, and other. Even though there is a huge need, and a shortage of doctors willing to work in these areas, we still face many challenges as international medical graduates. MEDICC has helped to destroy some of these barriers, by increasing our access to study materials, supportive networks, and funding to offset some of the expenses involved in becoming licensed here. They also support other (non-U.S.) graduates of the Latin American School of Medicine in their work across the globe.
