Global Brigades

Global Brigades is the largest student-led movement for global health and sustainable development. Students travel to remote, rural, and under resourced communities in Honduras, Panama, Nicaragua and Ghana where they work alongside health professionals, local communities, and staff to run a mobile medical clinic and build sustainable health projects. We send medical mission trips over the Winter and Spring break.

Global Brigades is open to:

Pre-Medical Students

Pre-Pharmacy Students

Pre-Dental Students

Pre-Nursing Students

Pre-Optometry Students


Any other health professions or non-health professions oriented

Students Gain:

  • Shadowing hours
  • Hands on experience in a medical setting
  • The opportunity to positively influence global health
