Global Brigades

Global Brigades is a fantastic opportunity for pre-medical students, or anyone interested in pursuing a career in the health field. Our Medical Brigades offer leaders the role to mobilize peers and travel abroad, and the chance to gain practical medical experience in rural communities in Central America and Ghana. Our one-week Medical Brigades allows students the opportunity to shadow local Honduran, Nicaraguan, Panamanian, or Ghanain doctors, work in the pharmacies, perform triage — all aspects of a mobile medical clinic. The experience is invaluable for both personal and professional growth. Additionally, brigades serve as greats topic for medical school application essays and as résumé items for volunteers' professional development.                                            (source: http://www.globalbrigades.org/medical-brigades-faq)
