An Overview of the MEDLIFE Virtual Service Learning Trip
Virtual Service Learning Trips (SLTs) are remote programs that offer students an insider experience with MEDLIFE staff, community members, and professionals.
On your Virtual SLT, you will have an unfiltered look at how the virus has impacted the developing world. Interacting with professionals and community members, you will participate in engaging workshops and interactive learning. Live streams, webinars, breakout discussions and group messaging will allow for a real-time, engaging experience.

You can be a part of that.
MED Anywhere is for everyone
To accommodate students from all backgrounds and help make sure every MEDLIFEr has the chance to join a Virtual SLT, we’ve launched 2 trip options:
6-DAY VIRTUAL SLT
The 6-day Virtual SLT allows the group to take an in-depth look into the root causes of social inequality and how they have played a part in Peru’s confrontation with COVID-19.
