International Electives

School of Medicine Electives

Global Health Learning Opportunities (GHLO™) Collaborative

The GHLO Collaborative facilitates global mobility for final year students pursuing clinical, research, or public health electives outside their home country. The GHLO application service utilizes a Web-based platform that streamlines the application process for students, enables home schools to endorse student applications and track progress, and host institutions to publish and manage elective offerings, student selection and evaluation.

For more information on the GHLO collaborative, please click here.

Things to consider when planning an international elective:

  • M3 students: Please make sure to speak with an OSA Dean prior to applying to an international elective. In the 4th year, students will be busy with the residency application process. OSA Deans can help students pick the best month for international travel.
  • Please read over the 4th year section of Academic Handbook prior to considering an international elective.
  • Please check the United States Travel Warning List prior to applying for an elective. If the country where the internal elective is taking place is on the Travel Warning List, students will not be approved for that elective.
  • Please read over the UMB Campus International Travel Resources page.
