The UCF MedPACt (Medical Students Providing Across Continents) student organization has coordinated several interdisciplinary trips where the students serve six rural communities in the northeastern part of the Dominican Republic. Our medical students work alongside students from the UCF College of Nursing, UF College of Pharmacy, Engineers without Borders-USA and medical students from the local medical school -Universidad Catolica Nordestana.
