The USF Health International Foundation has formally opened the doors of its Panama office, giving medical professionals from around the region the opportunity to learn about the latest medical advances without having to come to the U.S. At the same time, students from around USF Health (like a recent group of College of Nursing pupils) get the chance to experience what it's like to practice medicine in a foreign country.

Dr. Ann DeBaldo, USF Health's Associate VP for International Programs, explains what she means when she says the new Panama office is "one of the most beautiful examples of hammering swords into plow shares" she's ever seen.
USF College of Nursing student Jason Merry says the six years he spent overseas as a member of the U.S. Army helped him out on the trip to Panama.
