In one short week the trip provided me with a good understanding of the local culture and the local medical practices of the Yucatan. I had the chance not only to observe surgeries and general consultations but also to explore the Mayan ruins, learn from local medical students, and discuss traditional healing.

This trip has been the most life changing and rewarding experience I've ever encountered. My heart is set to return to the beautiful and friendly city of Merida.–Jasmine
The Community Medicine in Yucatan trip led by Dr. Nassiri and Sung Soo was single handely the best experience I have had as an undergraduate student. Our activities ranged from watching a live birth to visiting the ancient ruins of Uxmal. I know this is a trip I will cherish forever..–Sonam
The Community Medicine in Yucatan, Mexico program allowed me the unique opportunity to experience firsthand how health care is approached internationally. I would highly recommend this program to any student interested in a health-related profession.–Ryan
