This is a basic camp listing: no contact information is provided.

All of our academies are summer experiences in the developing world formed around a partnership with a top US university.  We know that working with US faculty in an international setting allows students to learn and contribute in ways that a domestic summer camp or volunteer experience can't.


Your experience begins a few days before departing the US on the campus of one of our top universities.  During your pre-departure workshop, you'll learn to facilitate several screening measurements (height, weight, temperature, blood pressure, heart rate, vision screening, pulse oximetry, etc), to conduct post-care consultations (patient advocacy), complete some introductory cultural and language training and learn critical skills for helping university faculty and graduate students conduct their research.

Then, you'll spend a bit less than four weeks in a developing nation, living with a host family and working in a health clinic or hospital.  You'll continue your studies with a faculty member and attend language training in the morning.  Your afternoons are dedicated to screening patients in the waiting room, shadowing a physician or nurse, being a patient advocate, helping our faculty or their graduate students conduct research or performing other volunteer tasks.
