This policy provides guidelines for students and faculty who are traveling abroad on behalf of Meharry medical College.

Policy Statement

International medical experiences offer outstanding learning opportunities and adventures; however, they should not be undertaken without adequate investigation.  Students and faculty must insure the trip will be educational, well-supervised and respectful of the limits of students as various levels of training, sensitive to the needs of the community, and, of course, safe.  Students are expected to be academically sound and have no deficiencies in coursework to obtain approval. The following are the steps needed before any international travel commences.  Plan to complete the steps below at least 4-weeks before you travel.
