You can go to medical school for free.

The hitch?

You have to be between 18 and 30 years of age, become fluent in Spanish and willing to earn your medical degree in Cuba.

The invitation for U.S. students to earn a free medical education in Cuba dates to 2000, when 2nd District U.S. Rep. Bennie Thompson and other members of the Congressional Black Caucus visited the island nation 90 miles south of Miami. Then-President Fidel Castro talked about his country’s work in providing free medical educations to those willing to serve in medically needy areas across the world.
