Team Leader

Team Leader applications are now open. Apply here !


Team Leaders are responsible for setting up the trip – including clinics, home stays, volunteering, and other activities. Although it is more work, team leaders have more control over their trip experience as they determine which health professionals to contact. For example, a team leader can choose to focus on setting up just pre-medical shadowing or pre-medical with a mix of pre-dental and pre-pharmacy rotations.

Role: Plan site & lead a team of 4-6 students during the trip
Time Commitment: About 3-5 hrs/wk, from November to March


  • Contact clinics & housing
  • Coordinate a volunteer activity
  • Contact lecture speakers
  • Compile participant folders
  • Attend all committee meetings
  • Respond promptly to all emails
  • Preferred: Have a valid driver’s license and insurance and be willing to drive a rental vehicle to and from your site

The Ideal Team Leader:
If you are organized, self-motivated, personable, and would like to hone your leadership skills, this is the perfect position for you! No prior HCASB experience is necessary though applications from past participants and committee members are highly encouraged.
