Before You Go

CHECK YOUR ELIGIBILITY.

OGH site locations are open to all students enrolled in a UAMS program. You are welcome to apply for trips where OGH does not have a site location, just be sure to meet with us before you apply and book your trip. Also, be sure to check your elective status. Some programs only offer academic credit during specific times of the program.

SET ASIDE TIME TO PREPARE FOR YOUR TRIP.

We get it, you’re super busy , but don’t let planning your trip fall by the wayside. To properly prepare for a trip, a good amount of time is required. Don’t worry, we are here to help! After you apply, and at least 14 days before you depart, you must meet with us one final time so we may officially sign off on your trip.

BE READY TO PAY FOR YOUR TRIP. 

By now you’ve done your research, you’ve talked to the right people, and you’ve decided on your global health site location. With the submission of your application, you accept full responsibility for raising and paying for 100 percent of your global health trip expenses. Please submit the cost for your trip 21 days before you depart. We can’t reserve your spot without your payment.
