Nicaragua"I feel that I had an educational and meaningful clinical experience in Nicaragua. It was surprising to see how scarce some resources are (such as foley catheter bags), and to see how physicians try to make clever use of the resources that they do have (such as taping an empty saline bag to the end of a foley catheter to turn this into a collecting device)."  - Eric Kerns, Nicaragua

"I found my medical experience to be quite rewarding. I really enjoyed working with such an underserved community. Even though many patients had problems which we were not equipped to deal with, universally everyone was appreciative that we had spent time to come to their community and to practice our craft as best we could." - Rich Kalman, Nicaragua
