IVUmed has sent Resident Scholars to Mexico since 2001. Here, Resident Scholars and their board-certified mentors have collaborated with their hosts on a variety of general urology cases, particularly stones and stricture disease. Our most recent work in Mexico has taken place in Tapachula.

“I learned more about caring in Mexico than any medicine textbook could ever teach…After five years of residency, we can sometimes misplace the reasons why we went into our chosen program.”
