I am glad to have taken the decision to be part of the GMT experience because it helped me grow as an individual. Engaging in this experience has allowed me to learn many things in the medical field and about the Panamanian culture. GMT is a unique organization that allows many medical students to attain essential knowledge that is required to become a healthcare leader. I can say this is certainly true about myself because I have psychologically and spiritually grown after this GMT journey.- Angela, Junior, Hunter College
