College of Medicine Friends of Global Health

Give Now to This Fund

Many UF medical students participate in UF sponsored short term overseas service or research trips during their medical school career. The College of Medicine sponsors trips to Dominican Republic, Ecuador. Haiti, Mexico, and Nicaragua each year during Spring Break. The College of Medicine students collaborate with students from PA, Pharmacy, Nursing, Public Health & Health Professions and Dentistry to plan and execute the trips with faculty input and oversight. The trips provide students with exposure to health and health care in other countries. The trips are a brief but intense immersion experience in areas that have limited resources and daunting health inequities. With our in-country partners they provide health and dental services for community members in primarily rural settings. Many students have described their experience on the trips as “life changing.” For more information on these trips see https://globalhealth.med.ufl.edu. The Global Health Education Program is developing more in-depth training in Global Health and will provide more in-depth opportunities for UF medical students to work and learn in international settings.
