Global Health Electives
It is the policy of UNC School of Medicine that all medical students undertaking global health travel must complete pre-travel requirements and receive written approval at least eight weeks prior their departure date from the US. Students who do not complete pre-travel requirements by the deadline will not be approved to travel or receive UNC funding or course credit.
Students are encouraged to plan their global health experience with OGHE approval at one of UNC’s approved international sites. If you are interested in receiving UNC approval for a global health elective with a program that is not listed, OGHE approval is required and can be pursued through a meeting request with the Assistant Director and/or one of the office faculty directors. We will work with you and your faculty advisor to find the best possible solution.Browse by Category View All Electives
