Global Health Learning Opportunities
GHLO™ is the AAMC’s new initiative that is a network of collaborating institutions in more than 16 countries, facilitating global mobility for final year medical students pursuing clinical or research electives outside their home country.
The AAMC recognizes that with ever-increasing globalization in medicine there is growing interest on the part of medical students and medical schools to incorporate international electives into their medical education curriculum. Cross-border exchanges in the health professions enable students to work with different patient populations, develop cross-cultural understanding, and learn about health systems and approaches to wellness and illness in other nations.
Welcome to the GHLO Application Service!GHLO uses a Web-based platform that enables students to search and apply for electives, institutions to endorse student applications and track progress, and to manage the elective selection and evaluation processes.
Search and Apply for ElectivesAs a final year medical student currently attending a GHLO participating institution, you will have the opportunity to search and apply for electives at institutions in the GHLO Collaborative. Based on your preferences, you can search for clinical, research, or public health opportunities. Additionally, there will be various ways for you to refine your search criteria.
