Testimonials

ANA DE ROO - OHIO STATE UNIVERSITY

Thank you so much for the incredible opportunity to spend a month with Cinterandes! As an aspiring surgeon I enjoyed the opportunity to observe and assist with surgeries in the mobile operating room, both in Cuenca and during the mission to Palmar.

ROSIE CLIFF - WARWICK UNIVERSITY

The past 6 weeks with the Cinterandes Foundation will stay in my memory for the rest of my life. Everybody I have met has been so friendly and helpful and I feel honored to have been part of such a special team.

MARIA RAQUEL KRONEN - UNIVERSITY OF CALIFORNIA

Taking a month of my education to visit Ecuador with Cinterandes was without doubt one of the best uses of my elective time in medical school. The Foundation was so reliable and invested in my experience.

GREGORY COUCH - THE UNIVERSITY OF SIDNEY

My name is Greg and I am from The University of Sydney, Australia. I have just completed my four week elective placement with the Cinterandes Foundation in January 2015. I had high expectations for the experience, but even my expectations were exceeded by the real thing. Cinterandes really provides the most amazing experience for any medical student, in terms of the medicine, the cultural immersion, the new friendships and the good times.

ALEKSANDAR MISEV - AUSTRALIAN NATIONAL UNIVERSITY

My elective with Cinterandes was an unbelievable experience. Everyone - admin staff, doctors, patients - was very welcoming and helped me get the most out the elective.

MATTHEW PRICE - BRIGHAM YOUNG UNIVERSITY

I went on the mission to Palmar on June 9th 2014, while on the mission and for the following month, I conducted patient interviews to asses various aspects of their access to surgical care.

MISSIONS

I don’t know where to start, I’ve been looking forward to this trip since I was in second year of medical school! I cant believe I’m finally here, it’s like a dream come true.

BRETT MURRAY - BOSTON UNIVERSITY

Cinterandes was an absolutely amazing experience. I am so glad I came. The mission was great as were the rotations.

Jeffrey Brown - University of Arizona

I couldn’t be happier about my choice to spend 6 weeks with Cinterandes in my summer between first and second year of medical school.  The hands on experience was invaluable and the mobile surgery program is truly a unique form of global health that can’t be found elsewhere.

Preeya Desai - Chicago Medical School

The opportunity to volunteer with CINTERANDES is an experience that I will always treasure. From the very beginning, the CINTERANDES staff was extremely helpful and accommodating, ensuring that my peers and I had the best learning experience possible.

CLAYTON CRAWFORD - STANFORD UNIVERSITY

My first experience with Cinterandes was during the summer of 2010, when I spent two months living at a homestay in Cuenca, improving my Spanish and gaining a wealth of clinical training and exposure. I joined the team on two mobile surgery trips: one to the coastal fishing town of Palmar and another to the small mountain farming town of San Jose de Minas.

Daniel Knott - Virginia Commonwealth University

When I came to Ecuador for a 4th year medical school rotation I didn't know what to expect or what to do when I got there. The staff of the foundation were incredibly helpful and became fast and close friends by the end of the experience.

STHEPHEN HORRAS - University of Arizona

My experience in Ecuador with Cinterandes was invaluable. The mobile surgical trip was an obvious highlight, and it was easy to see how much of an immediate impact Cinterandes was making in the lives of people who otherwise would have had to wait an unknown period of time before they could be considered for surgery.

LENIKA DE SIMONE - STANFORD UNIVERSITY

 

My trip to Ecuador with the Cinterandes Foundation was a memorable experience. Going into the program, I expected to learn a lot about medicine and surgical procedures but the experience was much more emotive and influential than expected.
