Help Panamanian medical residents gain pediatric sub-specialty health training to provide care to children and mothers living in rural Panama.

Why we care: Ten percent of Panama’s population lives in the remote rural jungles of the country—where access to maternal and pediatric specialty healthcare is low or entirely out of reach.

How we’re solving this: We are developing an education program for Panamanian Medical Residents to study at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles and return to Panama with advanced training. 

The Lopez Family Foundation delivers healthcare in Panama to women and children through its  seven telemedicine centers in the rural Comarca Ngobe-Bugle region.  Within this region, pediatric specialty healthcare is non-existent and so many children and mothers must rely on general practitioners and nurses for critical healthcare situations.  Our telemedicine services are able to deliver virtual care but in-person consultation and ongoing treatment visits are essential for the welfare of patients.

Funding from this project will help the Lopez Family Foundation offer a Resident Education Program to support four third year residents the opportunity to travel to Children’s Hospital Los Angeles to learn from world-class physicians specializing in pediatric care. Residents will also work in collaboration with the Medical Residency Programs at Hospital Del Nino and Hospital Especialidades Pediatricas and will focus on expanding their education and hands on experience, so they return to Panama ready to apply their skills to mothers and children in rural environments.
