Participant Agreement                                      Please read carefully


1. I have carefully read the MEDICC brochure and application forms. I understand that their terms and conditions are
incorporated into this agreement.
2. Should I become ill or incapacitated, I agree to allow MEDICC/the Cuban Ministry of Public Health (MINSAP) to take all
actions necessary to procure appropriate medical services, including if need be transportation to my home or hospitalization at
my own expense.
3. I agree to conduct myself professionally during the program, to cooperate with MEDICC staff and my fellow participants.
This includes commitment to full attendance at Monday-Friday course activities. I realize that misconduct on my part may
result in expulsion from the MEDICC program without refund of fees; and reiterated unjustified absences from course activities
will be cause for an unsatisfactory academic evaluation.
4. I understand that MEDICC, its staff or representatives are not responsible for circumstances beyond their control
(including but not limited to natural disasters or phenomena, sickness, government regulations) or for actions on the part of
persons not under MEDICC management (such as, but not limited to, travel agencies, airlines, other governmental bodies or
private corporations). I agree to exempt MEDICC and its staff from all claims arising out of such actions.
5. I agree to exempt MEDICC and its staff from any claims of injury while a participant in the MEDICC program.
6. I agree that MEDICC may modify the course program as necessary (including program dates within one week of original
dates, professional activities and work/study assignments). I agree that such changes are not grounds for withdrawal from the
program or for a refund.
7. I realize that it is my responsibility to complete all forms, make all travel arrangements, and submit all payments by the
deadlines indicated. I agree to travel to and from Cuba on the first and last days stipulated for my elective: should this be
impossible and MEDICC decides to accept my application, I agree to pay airport transfers to and from the medical school where
the elective is offered, and for any necessary accommodations in Havana before or after the stipulated travel dates.
8. I agree to submit the required non-refundable deposit to MEDICC in the USA, and to pay the full balance upon arrival
in Cuba. Should I return home before the elective is completed, I understand that a refund will ONLY be granted in case of
emergency (e.g. student illness, family death or illness, or “academic emergency” demanding an urgent return that cannot be
postponed). In case of emergency, I understand that the following refund policy will apply: if the student returns home before
one third of the elective period is over, then she/he will receive a 50% refund of payments made in Cuba (not to be applied to
the non-refundable deposit). After that point, no refunds will be given.
9. I recognize that it is my responsibility to obtain a valid passport, and to submit two copies of the passport photo page
with my application. I agree to furnish whatever information may be requested by MEDICC and its staff in order to complete
application for my U.S. Treasury travel license and my Cuban visa.
10. I agree to abide by pertinent U.S. and Cuban laws, including but not limited to U.S. Treasury Department regulations
governing licensed travel to Cuba and stipulating that U.S. nationals may not spend over $166 per day in Havana and $125 in
the provinces.
11. I understand that my U.S. Treasury travel license and my Cuban visa are valid only as long as I am participating in
the MEDICC program and that any attempt by me to use these documents for other purposes is in violation of the laws of both
governments. I exempt MEDICC, the Cuban Public Health Ministry and their representatives from any responsibility once I
have completed or left the MEDICC program.
12. I exempt MEDICC and its representatives from responsibility for any financial obligation I incur personally, as well
as for any damage or injury that I may cause to person or property while I am a participant in the MEDICC program.
