Global Health Outreach

Public Profile

About This Organization

Abbreviation(s):
GHO
Purpose:
The GHO is a joint organization that includes the College of Medicine, College of Nursing, College of Dentistry, and undergraduates at Texas A&M University. We strive 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. Global health is an increasingly important field in modern medicine as it includes multiple systems and spans internationally to provide competent medical care to all those in need. We hope to instill an interest and passion in students for not only medicine, but medicine outside of national boundaries. Through medical mission trips, medical training sessions, guest speakers, and frequent meetings, we strive to include people from all areas of higher education and to enamor them in the complex field that is global health.
