    We would love to have you become part of the GMT experience. There are several ways in which you can become involved:

  • Participate in a trip as a student
    • Students are the life of our organization! We have 100's of trippers join us every year and the numbers are growing. Read the information on this site, and check out our Facebook page. Chances are there are students near you who have been on previous GMT trips and would be glad to share their experiences with you. Let us know if you want any more information or have any questions. If you are ready to go, find a trip on our trip schedule and register!
  • Start a student organization on your campus
    • We value our student organizations greatly and the majority of our tripper come as part of a campus group.  Check out the links to the existing campus organization websites and search around on Facebook to see what others are doing. Please contact us if you have the time and dedication to do this and we will get you started.

My favorite non-clinic memory from the trip was getting to know the doctors after clinic sessions. I felt that I learned a lot from them because they were the ones who guided our medical training at all times in the clinic. This is important because they earned my respect in this manner. I also learned that the doctors from Panama are extremely different from the doctors here in the United States. I can say that the doctors from Panama have more wisdom than the doctors over here due to the social level of patients that they deal with in their everyday lives. More so, apart from clinically diagnosing them, Panamanian doctors have a higher probability of diagnosing patient's with psycho-social problems apart from health related issues. Whereas, this is not so common here in North America.- Angela, Junior, Hunter College
