The TUNCOM Global Medicine Club is an interdisciplinary professional organization committed to the support and professional development of medical students and other healthcare professional students in the quest to provide medical and surgical care to underserved people around the world. GMC provides TUNCOM students with opportunities to promote public health in both local and non-local communities.

As the main planning group behind the yearly Guatemala Medical Mission Trip, the GMC executive board works closely with Dr. McHugh and the international organization DOCare International to plan the trip. GMC is also committed to helping out the local community through various fundraisers held throughout the year. GMC provides students with an opportunity to advocate for and educate others about the DO profession and its core values.

 


 

Global Medical Events

Global Medicine Club helps coordinate the annual DOCARE International Medical Mission Trip to Guatemala. Each year, an elected board works with representative of other DO schools around the country to take over 100 medical students, nursing students, and pharmacy students to Antigua, Guatemala. In June 2015, 31 TUNCOM students traveled to Guatemala and provided medical aid to over 2000 patients in cities of Esquintla and Puerto San Jose.

**This trip was not sponsored by Touro University Nevada and TUN bears no responsibility for the students during the trip.**
