The Global Health Institute facilitates many programs that help students realize their international service goals.  

Students for International Missions Service

SIMS’ mission is to provide LLU students with high-quality service-learning opportunities that empower them to become caring, competent, and socially responsible health professionals who value service as a lifelong process.

Deferred Mission Appointee Program (DMA)

The DMA Program was developed as a way to enable medical and dental students who are committed to overseas mission service to pursue their professional education with financial stability and to give focus and direction to this commitment.

Global Service Award Program (GSA)

The GSA program has been established to provide educational loan payments for non-medical and dental alumni who wish to serve as volunteers in an international setting upon completion of their studies at LLU.
