Testimonial: Michael Pignone, University of North Carolina, Asst. Professor of Medicine and Medical Researcher

Michael Pignone

The ACM Costa Rica Field Research program has had a profound effect on my career. The research I did in Costa Rica served as the basis for my undergraduate honors thesis and helped me decide to pursue a career in academic medicine. My Spanish language training has allowed me to continue to serve Spanish-speaking patients here in the U.S. throughout medical school, residency, and as a faculty member now at the University of North Carolina.
