With COVID-19 & Future Plans
Currently, due to both local and international travel restrictions afoot with the COVID-19 pandemic, some components of our pathway have been put on hold. However, this has not stopped us from continuing to develop them! Our leadership is working with our partners in Maputo, as well as healthcare facilities in Tijuana, Mexico, and other countries, in order to continue to expand the diverse experiences we can offer our residents!
While the state of the pandemic has made it necessary to curtail certain aspects of our learning, we also see it as an opportunity to create experiences and build relationships that may not have been possible before.
Thank you for learning a bit more about us! We wish you luck and hope to see you on your interview trail!
