Accepted students to the GSPA program follow a curriculum developed by Duke University for high school students working in the developing world.

Students start their Intensive rotation with a one-week pre-trip session co-taught by Maumee Valley faculty and members of the GPSA faculty. During their travels, students explore the community and social issues while developing their cross-cultural understanding and learning basic medical interventions like measuring blood pressure, blood glucose, heart rate, respiration rate, and temperature. Students stay on-site with local host families, work in medical clinics, and receive daily language instruction.

This incredible opportunity allows students to participate in a working, immersion experience. While the physical and intellectual challenges of a GPSA trip are many, the rewards are great. Past students have vaccinated hundreds of children in Guatemala and Belize, screened thousands of pregnant women for life-threatening eclampsia, and provided training to tens of thousands of children about nutrition and hygiene.
