The Latin American School of Medicine (ELAM) has 10,000 medical
students from foreign countries studying free in order to go back to
their home countries and help develop health care systems. The
students come from 30 countries, including eight African nations. The
Cuban government has opened up 500 places for young people from the US
to come and study medicine for free, in exchange for the pledge that
they will come back and work in underserved areas of the US.
Approximately 120 Americans are currently enrolled.
