Medical Teams

There are 4-6 surgical teams that donate time to Hospital de la Familia each year. Each team is lead by a team leader and is organized at least a year in advance. Becoming a team member is a serious commitment and once volunteered, the members are expected to honor the commitment. Team development is at the discretion of the team leader.
