Albert “Al” Martinez MD

Albert “Al” Martinez MD took his first mission trip with Project Compassion in 2000 and joined the Board of Directors of PC in 2001. He enjoys his involvement with the administrative end of PC as well as continuing to go on mission trips. He earned his Medical Degree in 1982 and completed his residency in Pediatrics in 1985. He has been in private pediatric practice since 1985 in Escondido and Poway, CA. Al enjoys the field of Pediatrics and the challenges of international medical missions, especially in having to care for all ages of patients, from infancy to the elderly. “I found my first trip with PC to be a life changing experience and I love every trip I take. I feel that the care I can give to the people on these trips is my way of thanking the Lord for all that he gives to me. Working with Project Compassion has been very rewarding in many ways. I encourage others, both medical professionals and lay persons, to take the first step into medical mission work and I know they will come back a different person.”
