Partnership Programs

GPSA partners with selected high schools to create custom programming. Our Partnership Program gives your high school the opportunity to develop its own travel program or eCourse in collaboration with GPSA staff.


The desired dates, time and length of the travel program or eCourse can be scheduled to fit your school’s academic calendar and / or your students’ availability.

 Curricular customization:

GPSA will collaborate with your faculty to develop a customized academic level curriculum that consists of several intellectually rigorous academic sessions adapted to fit the interests of your students.

Curricular development begins by working together with a faculty member who is interested in leading and co-developing educational sessions.


We offer a wide spectrum of topics that can be integrated into your curriculum in the areas of global health, cross-cultural competency, leadership, project management, patient care skills and basic screening skills such as blood pressure, glucose and vital signs.



A curriculum can be part of a separate non-credit class with assessment, existing credit class, intersessions (for example a January term), or an after school club.

Travel Program Location:

Your school may choose either West Virginia (USA), Thailand, Belize or Guatemala. All four beautiful and culturally rich locations, where high school students can actually make a difference by providing health services in low resource rural communities.  Program staff in these countries includes program coordinators, pre-med students from Duke, or similar universities.


A Partnership Program is completely custom made. As such, costs depend on many factors including location, length, dates and expected number of participants. Please, contact us if you would like a cost indication.
