Prospective Students

Join an Existing Chapter

GlobeMed chapters are led and driven by undergraduate students. If you are a student who wants to get involved in GlobeMed, see if your campus has an existing GlobeMed chapter and contact the chapter to become a member.

“GlobeMed has given me a sense of purpose that no organization, class, or club has given me before. The strong connections that are made through our partnerships and the relationships between students in the network are what make this movement so strong. GlobeMed inspires me every day to grow as an advocate for global health equity and leverage the power of young people to create great change.”
– Selena Suhail-Sindhu, Rutgers University ’13
