Dreamers to Doctors is a short film that focuses on four undocumented youth who are aspiring to become health professionals. The film shares their immigration stories, their motivations for pursuing a career in the health profession, the barriers they have faced along their journeys, and the opportunities that exists.

The film touches upon the Affordable Care Act that has enabled more people to obtain health coverage including many people who are immigrants with limited English Proficiency. Dreamers to Doctors highlights the need for culturally diverse doctors and how undocumented youth can help address the shortage of healthcare professionals—particularly primary care doctors—to meet the needs of the newly insured.

The film was produced in 2013 by Joel Aguilar, Josias Aguilar, Nelly Gonzalez, Denisse Rojas and New Latthivongskorn.
