Yes! We have team building weekends, but they are truly optional. Not everyone is able to come each time, and some volunteers may not ever be able to attend. We also try to attend the same conferences for continuing education opportunities combined with team building opportunities. Our next conference is in Kenya this coming spring. We hope to have more details soon.
We also take planned trips to teach the clinical components of the curriculum when we are capacity building with a strategic partner. During these trips faculty will train students and some faculty will train potential field/clinical instructors.
