Practice clinical case scenarios correspond to workshop topics
Mock clinics will be held after workshop each week. The clinics are catered to the conditions in the country of travel and are run by the GMT officers and prepare trippers for patient interactions abroad. Executive board members and directors will act as patients and physicians for trippers to develop their diagnostic and bedside manner skills.
It is important our students are accustomed with basic Spanish for clinic
Weekly Spanish training during meeting will provide trippers with the basic introductory phrases and medical vocabulary. No previous Spanish skill is required to attend a GMT trip because there will be translators in the clinic abroad.
We seek to promote sustainability through public health initiatives
Throughout the quarter, trippers will participate in interactive public health workshops covering principles of global health ethics and cultural competence and how these translate to student conduct on trips. We will discuss major themes and issues in the field of global health as well as what life is like in the country trippers will be visiting.
