Global Medical Education and Research Program

Years 1 and 2  Years 3 and 4  

International Students

A major goal of the Global Medical Education and Research (GMER) Program is to help every medical student participate in a clinical or research elective during their 4th year (when they can contribute the most at the sites where they are stationed).

However, students are urged to get involved early in organizations and activities related to International Health during their 1st and 2nd years and to begin planning for their clinical experiences at international sites during their 4th year.
