Adelante Mujer is proud to have our first eight alumni! These eight young medical doctors graduated from URACCAN University in Bilwi/Puerto Cabezas, Nicaragua on December 12, 2014.
The second Adelante Mujer class pronounced the Hippocratic Oath on January 27, 2016 and our third class became doctors on December 5, 2016. On February 24, 2018 nine additional Adelante Mujer students became medical doctors, fourteen were added on March 23, 2019, and another nine on February 21, 2020. To date, 54 doctors are beneficiaries of funding from Adelante Mujer. None of this would be possible without the many and generous donors to Adelante Mujer, Inc.
The first year after completing their study the new doctors serve one year in the local hospital under the direction of the hospital surgeon, Dr. Manuel Salas. Following the year of internship the young doctors will be assigned for two years of social service in areas determined by Nicaraguan Ministry of Health. After the three years, the young doctors are eligible to apply for their licence.
