Projects will take place in rural settings, and students will work in teams to plan for and complete projects assigned to them. To prepare for their projects, students will work with a Texas A&M University or Texas A&M Health Science Center faculty member from their school, as well as attend seminars focusing on local life, security and cultural issues, marine conservation, healthcare, international healthcare, and other relevant themes.
All eligible students are encouraged to apply. We want prospective participants to adjust, accept culture differences, and immerse themselves in the culture. Please realize that this program is not a vacation; students are encouraged to fulfill the duties of that internship with the highest professional standards. All participants are representatives of Texas A&M University and the Texas A&M Health Science Center and are to conduct themselves accordingly. Those who wish to receive academic credit must make separate arrangements with their academic department. Each prospective participant must take the initiative and make the most of this opportunity.
(Deadlines are printed on the applications.)
Note: Only students of Texas A&M University at College Station are eligible for this program.
