Our Global Health Gap Year calls those whose hearts beat to see communities thriving – physically, socially, emotionally, and spiritually.
During the next 22 weeks of your gap year, you will complete our Introduction to Global Health and Development School. You will be immersed in a powerful combination of essential basic healthcare knowledge and community development training, with a focus on preventing illness, promoting holistic wellbeing, and empowering communities to develop their strengths.
Your course will start at our campus in Townsville, Australia where you will undergo 12 weeks of training and 10 weeks of outreach with hands on experience in Communities in Australia.
