The annual Global Health Initiative Symposium and Silent Auction brings distinguished speakers to share their perspectives on international health issues and raises funds to assist medical students in traveling to underdeveloped countries. Most of the money raised goes to fourth year students in the International Education Program, who are required to complete a rotation abroad. Participation in national and international medical aid, research and cultural experiences helps these future doctors gain a better understanding of the global nature of medicine and public health. The hope is that, by creating a more experienced health care team, medical care delivery and health outcomes will improve throughout the world.
