Latin American School of Medicine

Full Scholarships for US Students

An outstanding example of people’s

diplomacy is the scholarship program that has

allowed more than 100 U.S. students to enroll

at the prestigious Latin American School of

Medicine in Havana, Cuba. These students –

African-American, Latino/a, Native

American, Asian American, and White, from

low-income and under-served communities in

29 states plus Washington D.C. and Puerto

Rico – are getting an incomparable education.

Students at the Latin American School of

Medicine receive a rigorous hands-on training

in primary and preventative care, family

medicine and all the standard medical

specialties. They graduate well-versed in

global health issues and fully bilingual.

These full scholarships cover tuition, room

and board, plus textbooks in Spanish.

The only “condition” is that graduates of the

program return to their home countries to

practice in under-served communities.

This scholarship offer is a historically

unprecedented opportunity. IFCO is honored

to serve as the sole administrator of this

scholarship program for the U.S.
