End-of-Year Questionnaire | 4th year GHP students

Use this form to...

Biosketch |  "Premises"

  • The goal of the GHP Biosketch page is to help students network with other professionals interested in global health, to be a resource for GHP students so they can have a place to post and share their global health credentials, and to help future UMMS students who may be looking to get input/advice from other GHP students & alumnus.
  • The GHP Biosketch page is bare-bones at the moment (and is currently available only to members of the UMMS community); the goal is to improve this page over time, possibly making it accessible to non-UMMS people in the future.
  • To include a photo with your Biosketch, email a photo to IMEP-GHP@umassmed.edu (use subject: Photo attached for my GHP Biosketch)

Recognition of the Global Health Pathway on your Academic Record

Participation in the GHP can appear at most four times on your academic transcript. Therefore, for those of you who are extending to a 5th year, recognition of participation in the GHP will typically not appear during your 4th year but will instead appear towards the end of your 5th year if you have continued to participate in the GHP.
 

Important reminders for students not graduating in June 2017

For those who are extending and are planning to graduate in 2018 or later, please remember that any proposed global health experience for a UMMS medical student needs to be approved by both OGH and OUME. Find key steps and documents in the approval process, including a concise checklist, on the IMEP webpage: For those who are extending and are planning to graduate in 2018 or later, please remember that any proposed global health experience for a UMMS medical student needs to be approved by both OGH and OUME.
