Each year, two residents along with 1-2 faculty members travel to Oaxaca, Mexico for an integrative medical mission trip with Los Quijotes of San Antonio. The entire group includes Nursing, OB/GYN, Pediatrics, Physical Therapy, Optometry, Ophthalmology, Dentistry, and Pharmacy. Residents not only have the opportunity to provide clinical care to patients, but also are involved in the education of medical students from Mexico as well as patient education.
Residents also have the opportunity to select a location of interest and create an elective based on their personal goals. Residents have chosen to do this in Vietnam, Kijabe, Kenya, and Ecuador as well as the Texas-Mexico border in the Rio Grande Valley.
