Submit Field Experience Verification

Upon completion of your Global Health Field Experience, you are required to provide the Global Health Advisor with a document verifying that you completed your hours. Once the verification document is received, your degree audit will be updated to show that your field experience is "complete" and a notification will be sent to students through the VAC.

Submit the signed logs to ghpadvising@ucsd.edu or bring to the Global Health Program Office.

Option 2: Supervisor Submits a Verification Letter or Email 

Once you have completed your hours, you will need to ask your supervisor to send documentation to the Global Health Program Office to verify your hours.
