UNC SOM Policy: To enroll in a global health elective or to travel in a student role, regardless of credit or funding support, every student is required to receive OGHE approval by completing the SOM OGHE Pre-Departure requirements. Faculty permission to enroll in a course does not deem the elective approved until OGHE confirms travel is permitted. Failure to receive OGHE approval will result in academic forfeiture of credit completed abroad, reimbursement of any SOM funding, and significant financial and medical risk should you travel without completing the OGHE requirements.
