Global Biomedical Service

Welcome to the GBS Program

The Global Biomedical Service program (GBS) seeks to provide students with the opportunity to have hands on technical and cultural experience abroad. The program consists of an 8-week preparatory courses and a 16-day trip to the on-site location where students apply their technical knowledge to a clinical environment. Cooperating with Hong Kong Polytechnic University, GBS gives students the chance to apply technical skills to make a real impact. In 2019, we travelled to Yangjiang, China to make orthotics for children suffering from Cerebral Palsy.
