Global Health Electives
UNC School of Medicine policy requires all medical students undertaking global health travel to complete pre-travel requirements and receive written approval at least eight weeks prior to their departure. Failure to do so may result in cancellation of your program, funding, and course credit.
You are encouraged to choose UNC’s approved international sites. Other sites will require OGHE approval. Request a meeting with Moira. We will work with you and your faculty advisor to find the best possible solution.
