Get Involved

Each year numerous medical trainees, practicing physicians, and a variety of other healthcare and non-healthcare professionals from universities and other organizations collaborate on GPAS projects.

If you are interested, we encourage you to review the useful resources below to help understand the body of knowledge and considerations around effective partnerships and volunteerism. Please let us know if you have any links to add.

GPAS focuses on local capacity building projects rather than clinical volunteer work.

Currently we do not provide financial support for those seeking to collaborate with GPAS on projects, though we do try to keep track of some potential funding sources.

For medical trainees, practitioners and others seeking to work with GPAS, collaboration must be done in accordance with guidelines of your home and host institutions and organizations (This includes but is not limited to financial support, liability and licensing).
