Full Scholarship to Study Medicine in Cuba- Deadline 3/14/14

February 27, 2014

Deadline: March 14, 2014

[This activity is approved by the U.S. Department of State.]

The Latin American School of Medicine (LASM), in Havana, Cuba, was founded in 1998, as Cuba’s response to the devastation of Hurricanes Mitch and Georges.  Cuba understood that, if the poorest regions in our hemisphere were able to develop adequate healthcare infrastructures, they could save as many lives every year as had been lost in the hurricanes.  The Cubans offered full scholarships to enroll at LASM to young people from the nations affected by the hurricanes — on the sole condition that, once they graduated, they would return to their home countries and offer low-cost health services in their own underserved communities.

This exceptionally generous offer of a world-class full-scholarship medical education is also being extended to students from the US.

The offer to US students was made because of Cuba’s recognition that millions in the US have little or no access to affordable health care; and that many young people in the US don’t even dare to dream of studying medicine because of the economic costs.  Students from communities of color and low-income communities are especially encouraged to apply to the program.

Applicant criteria:

  • Be US citizens (with US passport)
  • Be between the ages of 18 and 25 by the time of MATRICULATION
  • Must have completed the following college-level, pre-med science courses:
    • One year of biology with lab (Biology I and II with labs)
    • One year of chemistry with lab (General Chemistry I and II with labs)
    • One year of organic chemistry with lab (Organic Chemistry I and II with labs)
    • One year of physics with lab (Physics I and II with labs)
  • Be physically and mentally fit
  • Come from the humblest and neediest communities in the US
  • Be committed to practice medicine in poor and underserved US communities after graduation
