I volunteered for one week and I am so happy that I did! The staff at Project Alajuelita are amazing and treat the patients in the community like family, including myself. The relationships that they build with the community make them feel welcomed and the staff continues to provide health education for everyone. I traveled alone which was a challenge because I knew very little Spanish but everyone was very helpful in teaching me. Volunteering along gave me to opportunity to help in every way possible. I was able to register patients, take their vitals, see them with the doctor, and then fill their prescriptions in the pharmacy. I know it would have fun to have other volunteers with me as well but I feel like I was able to experience all aspects of the clinic and more!​ I know that the time I spent with FIMRC will greatly impact my ability to become the best physician that I can be.
