Medical Self-Evaluation

Standards of medical care vary widely across the globe. In order to have a safe experience abroad, it is important that we are aware of any health concerns you may have so as to best advise you on appropriate resources available prior to your departure. Living overseas can create emotional and physical distress for any participant. In some cases, mild disorders can become very serious conditions while living in a new environment.

Please complete the form below regarding your current health status. This information is not used for purposes of approval for GEI programs. It will be kept strictly confidential and will only be used in matters related to your program and your healthcare while overseas.

Please inform us immediately should you incur any pre-trip injuries that will affect your participation in this program.
