In 1999 Cuba opened the Latin American School of Medicine (ELAM) to give medical scholarships to the brightest from poor areas around the world so that they may become doctors that will eventually return and serve the communities from which they came. Due to decades of political animosity between the United States and Cuba, of which have only recently began to normalize, information about Cuba has been relatively scant. Despite the impasse in diplomatic relations, Cuba provided the offer of free medical scholarships for students in the United States. The film tells the story of the medical scholarship program and the young Americans, many from poor and underserved communities in the United States, who were awarded full scholarships to study medicine at the Latin American School of Medicine in Havana, Cuba. The program is a 6-7 year, fully Spanish, hands-on experience that prepares students to become doctors that are skilled at preventing diseases and treating patients in low-resource conditions with an interwoven focus on community building. At a time when Cuba itself remained off-limits to most Americans, the students and graduates of ELAM share their experiences, challenges, lessons and hopes as they are fully immersed in a new culture while learning a unique and radically different approach to medicine and healthcare

Spanish/Nat Faced with the U-S embargo and the Helms-Burton Act restricting investment, Cuba is struggling to maintain its reputation for having one of the best medical systems in the world. But hospital officials in Cuba say they lack medicines and the necessary resources to operate as efficiently as they did in the past. Hospitals like Hermanos Ameijeiras in Havana are undergoing a resource crisis which many blame on the U-S embargo and the threat of the Helms-Burton Act against foreign companies investing in Cuba. Professor Israel Borrajero says Cuban doctors are frustrated due to the lack of basic resources. SOUNDBITE: (Spanish) We are developing with many limitations, with many setbacks while in other countries medicine is advancing ever faster. We have the human potential to do the same but the resources we have are not enough to keep up with the advances in science. SUPER CAPTION: Professor Israel Borrajero, Professor of Pathology Hospital Hermanos Ameijeiras is the largest and most modern teaching hospital in Havana. It has the best technological facilities for exploratory surgery, especially cardiovascular conditions. Still these facilities cannot be used properly if doctors do not have the basic resources. Doctors say despite all this they can still do their job. SOUNDBITE: (Spanish) We do all kinds of cardiovascular treatments at this hospital, transplants, and there are difficulties but we can still do it. I don't know about any violations to the blockade to get resources but sometimes there are violations. SUPER CAPTION: Doctor, Hermanos Ameijeiras Hospital The hospital may lack resources but patients seemed satisfied with their treatments. SOUNDBITE: (Spanish) Medical treatment is provided by the state equally to both Cuban patients and everyone who needs it and that's admirable. SUPER CAPTION: Patient SOUNDBITE: (Spanish) Strictly we have not seen any effects because of the country's emphasis on health care and education. But it (embargo) has limited us in other economic spheres, in social life and many other things. SUPER CAPTION: Patient Hermanos Ameijeiras Hospital receives funding from Spain and other governments. But many feel that help will not be enough for Cuba to maintain its reputation for having one the world's best health systems.
