Virtual Experiential Learning

Virtual Global Health Squads propel students into an international medical relief organization right from the classroom.  These online programs create engaging experiential learning environments by leveraging telemedical tools and in-country medical teams to involve students in real patient cases and healthcare work.

Volunteer Abroad Programs

In-country Global Health Squads travel internationally to volunteer with our medical teams and partner communities.  Guided by our professional staff students provide healthcare screenings, educational workshops, and complete infrastructure projects that improve health outcomes in partner communities abroad.

Global Health Projects Include

Mobile Medical Clinics

Students enable local health professionals to deliver mobile medical and screening services to community members.

Health Infrastructure

Students enable the construction of infrastructure that improves health outcomes such as hand washing stations, eco-stoves and latrines.

Educational Workshops

Facilitated by our local teams, students create health workshops for local children in the areas of hygiene, dental health, and preventative health. 

Telemedical Clinic

Students shadow our on-the-ground physicians in live clinics that are sensitively streamed to your class utilizing telemedical tools to optimize learning experience and participation.
