Through the Student Ambassador Network (SAN), GEMx offers leadership opportunities to students of GEMx Partner Schools. In collaboration with GEMx staff, school faculty, and each other, Student Ambassadors help build awareness about the importance of global exchange, promote the GEMx program at their schools, and make students aware of the many international exchange opportunities available through GEMx. They also provide support to the GEMx Program Managers at their schools and to students taking electives through GEMx at their schools. GEMx Student Ambassadors work with each other and with GEMx staff to discuss challenges, exchange information, and share ideas in an effort to help grow and enhance GEMx, and to help ensure that GEMx is meeting the needs of participating schools and their students.
Ambassadors are students of GEMx Partner Schools with a strong commitment to global educational exchange in medicine and other health professions. They are individuals who want to develop their leadership and communication skills, have a strong interest in cultural exchange and international collaboration, have a desire to support their fellow students, and who are willing to help promote the GEMx program. Student Ambassadors must have completed at least one full year of a medical degree program.
