D. Pre-departure Check-ups

All students participating in Payson Graduate Program in Global Development summer programs are required to hand in a completed physician's statement before the final approval of their application. The goal of this requirement is not to eliminate students from program participation but to identify and design a treatment plan for any medical/psychological conditions that may affect them while abroad. We recommend but do not require that students have complete physical and dental examinations before departure. We are very concerned that students think through their needs for on-going medical, dental, or psychological services and prepare to handle them while abroad. In particular, the range of counseling services available to students on Tulane's campus is generally not available overseas.
