Global Medical Brigades

Visit Group Website

Global Medical Brigades at UAB is a secular, international student-operated volunteer organization whose mission is to provide sustainable development to underserved communities throughout the world.

Along with affiliate groups at other distinguished universities, our UAB team recruits student volunteers and professionals, gathers supplies, and then travels overseas to set up free medical clinics in a variety of Honduran, Panamanian, and Nicaraguan communities. Our organization will hold one trip per year, taking place during academic breaks, and provide ongoing year-long educational and professional development opportunities that relate to international health and development to members. We will also locally volunteer towards efforts to further express our goals within our own community.
