Global Medical Training was created on ideals to improve the conditions and well-being of a global humanity. It is grounded in the reality that palpable misery exists globally. These attitudes were combined and converted to action through the GMT concept. This has resulted in our international endeavor to provide free health care beyond the borders of North America to those people deprived of adequate access to good health care. A strong corollary objective is to provide students with a global educational experience of service to others who are less fortunate in this planetary Human Family. The trips are meant to be a heart and mind changing experience for all participants in this effort.
