Pre-planning meetings, supply coordination, and post-trip reflections resulted in student development of culturally sensitive health care practices and contribution to a sustainable medical mission. Further inquiry into the student’s global and clinical reflections were studied using qualitative methodology to explore themes from the students’ experiences.
