Our Global Medicine Program inspires, educates and equips medical students, medical residents, faculty and others to provide healthcare in medically under-served communities, locally and globally.
Our overall goal is to serve those in need and learn from them. We aim to do this with competence, humility, compassion and ingenuity. We seek to provide excellent service by optimizing:
Ensuring our efforts are both worthwhile and long-lasting.
Equipping ourselves and those we serve. Our goal is to empower others so that they will eventually be able to meet their own needs.
Getting to know people and their culture and learning from them.
Where students at UB and in the communities we serve develop a vision for their talents and careers to make a positive and significant difference in the world.
Where students and health professionals from all different disciplines work closely together and learn from each other.
Ingenuity is needed to provide optimal care and assist others in meeting their needs in low resource settings.
The core of why we do what we do.
If you would like to serve overseas, but are not available during the above dates or would prefer to go to different countries, please contact us. We can let you know about other opportunities with non-UB organizations.
