Thank you for starting this thread!
I was wondering about the money needed for Global Medicine trips. Is the money needed for a trip already covered by tuition or do we need to raise additional money on our own time to fund a trip? And how soon into medical school can students go on a Global Medicine trip?
Students can start going on Medical Outreaches in their first year. You can ask for an adjustment from Financial aid to help with these trips, but you are ultimately responsible for the cost of the trip. RVU will set up several sponsored trips that will cost less to the students, but we have very limited space on these trips, so you will need to watch your email for when information comes out on these trips.
Sorry it took so long to respond. I have been out of the office for a while. Let me know if this helps, or if you need more information.
