REACH Goal & Objectives

Goal

REACH's goal is to bring together those interested in international health, cultural diversity, and a concern for the world at large.

 

Through our work, we hope to increase a sense of "global social consciousness" while raising awareness of cultural, socioeconomic and international health issues.

Objectives

  • Learn about a broad range of issues faced in health care in the developing world

  • Develop an appreciation of the role of culture and socioeconomic factors in the practice of medicine

  • Think about functioning in resource-deficient medical systems and environments

  • Develop the tools and experience to evaluate international volunteer opportunities in order to maximize your experience

  • Understand more about the use of evidence-based medicine related to international health issues.
