Global Medical Training at the University of Tennessee is so excited to be a new student organization on campus! Read more about our chapter below, our mission, our trip, and donate if you feel inclined!

This December, the UTK chapter of GMT is headed to Nicaragua for a week long medical mission trip.

Global Medical Training is a non-profit humanitarian organization that provides free medical-dental services to underprivileged villages in Central America

GMT\\\'s Objectives:

- To provide, as a team, free Medical and Dental healthcare services, and free medicines to the needy in Latin America

- To teach students basic clinical skills, basic Medical / Dental knowledge, and the art of medicine, in preparation for and during implementation of the clinics

- To provide students with a first-hand experience of cultural, social, historical, and political life in these regions. We will discuss and integrate this into the medical process with our patients. Many issues will be discussed, e.g. the relationship of poverty, education, and Public Health to illness and well-being.
