Global Field Experience

Global Field Experience (GFE) was initiated in 2013 in order to provide students who have existing global health experiences with opportunities to further their global health work during medical school. Students can be granted up to $1500 to further their previous involvement with a particular organization and/or to receive exposure to a certain region of the world where she or he may desire to return in the future. Preference will be given to Global Health Honors students who will utilize their field experience for the development of their Global Health Scholarly Projects. Applicants may choose from the approved site affiliation list or may apply for an exemption site with additional required documentation.

Global Field Experience includes local and international project sites.
