Here at UTMB, we are committed to international medical outreach to do our part in helping out some of the communities in greatest need around the world. Our international outreach is spearheaded by Dr. Pine, one of our Pediatric Otolaryngology faculty members. Every year, Dr. Pine brings residents with him to Vietnam to provide otolaryngologic care to some of the most in-need communities. Every other year, he travels to Nepal to climb to base camp of Mount Everest. This medical trip focuses more on providing general medical care to the commonly sick and injured mountain climbers hoping to make it to the summit. Finally, Dr. Pine traveled to Kenya this year for the first time, and we are hoping to make this either an annual or biennial event. Stay tuned for more details!
