GHO is a joint organization that strives to include students interested in medicine or any aspect of the medical field and how it pertains to the world as a whole independent of their year in college or post-graduate work. At the forefront in helping our organization grow and succeed are the medical, nursing, and dentistry students at Texas A&M Health Science Center. In the past, we have worked alongside Global Medical Training (GMT), our organization plans a medical mission trip to provide free healthcare to medically underserved communities in developing countries.
Prior to the trip, we host multiple training sessions in which basic medical screening skills and public health initiatives are taught. No experience is explicitly required. This provides ample learning and mentoring opportunities for students to become prepared for medicine at international boundaries. We also host meetings involving guest speakers with backgrounds in global health and we provide local community outreach opportunities. Through philanthropy and humanistic approaches, this organization aims to educate and enamor students in the important topic of global health and engage them in public health initiatives.
Here at Texas A&M Global Health Outreach, we see the value of every person's life. Healthcare is one of the most fundamental needs of human beings, which when lacking can cause significant suffering in people’s lives. We want to be a catalyst for positive change, and since our beginnings in 2018, we’ve been driven by the same mission we initially founded our joint organization: Promote the health and flourishing of medically underserved, rural, and impoverished communities both locally and around the world.
