Every year that goes by, Cuba becomes better known for its medical care. Its Latin American School of Medicine trains over 20,000 students from Latin American and Africa. They will return home to practice medicine in distressed communities.

Cuba provides their education free along with their books, dorm room, meals and health care. They become doctors with no school loans to pay off.

Cuba’s unique medical training aims to produce doctors who listen to their patients and learn from them. The medical school in Havana is now looking for students from the US who are low income and/or people of color.
