Service Learning Abroad

Service learning experiences abroad provide an excellent opportunity for medical students and public health practitioners to learn as well as share their skills with peers and the underresourced communities in another part of the world while enriching their own professional development.

These short-term public health outreach and medical service trips, which have become a popular humanitarian effort, can expand the scope of these efforts beyond the responsibilities often focused on assessing needs, planning, implementing, and evaluation, to new vistas of guidance for new initiatives and share health promotion materials and other resources at IPHMO.

Apart from regular or one-off group travels, we also welcome proposals for continuing annual medically oriented visits that provides participants with benefits of long-term professional growth through continued reflective immerseness that converts a new and unknown setting to familiar settings.
