Colorado medical students training in Cuba

Colorado native Darian Zubia is a second-year student at the Latin American School of Medicine (ELAM) in Havana, Cuba, which enrolls 10,000 international medical students in a six year program, with the distinct mission to return its students to their native country after graduation and provide healthcare to underserved communities.

Since its first class of 2005, the Latin American Medical School (ELAM) has graduated over 23,000 physicians from low-income communities in Africa, Asia and the Americas (including the USA).

Zubia told KGNU’s Tony White that ELAM “is a very beautiful project.” Zubia says intends to return to the Colorado area after he graduates.
