About GASP

GASP is charged with advancing best practice standards for undergraduate students in health-related settings abroad. We are particularly interested in growing best practice awareness among medical and health science graduate admissions committees. Our aim is to ensure that admissions members understand and embrace ethical, competency-building activities for pre-health students and future health professionals. These efforts are fundamentally derivative of commitments to patient health and dignity in communities around the world.
