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.

It was incredible to be part of this long-running outreach program and the success it has in reaching patients with elective surgery needs, throughout Ecuador. The team functions like a well-built machine, despite the lack of full hospital infrastructure and the ingenuity involved in carrying out the missions was remarkable. Students were very well integrated into the mission and it was a very educational experience to see surgical care delivered via a truck with strong local general medicine support.

I will always remember my time spent with Cinterandes and hope to stay involved once I finish my surgical training.
