For the first time ever, Augustana College is venturing to Nicaragua to team up with Global Medical Training, an organization dedicated to providing free healthcare in poor countries. GMT offers college students the opportunity to serve, while at the same time receiving valuable, hands-on medical training under the supervision of medical professionals.

The Plan

We hope to develop a self-sustaining program in which each year student groups will serve with and learn from our Augustana alumni in the health professions..

Three Primary Goals

  1. To provide human and animal health assistance in the second poorest nation in the hemisphere.
  2. To plant the seed of “service to the underserved” in the hearts of our pre-health professional students at Augustana College.
  3. Eventually, to fund the building of a clinic in Nicaragua to provide stable, year-round health care in an underserved community
