Because of the complexities of international travel and the need to be aware of Department of State and CDC Travel Warnings and other pertinent safety information, it is required that all student international educational experiences be registered with and approved by the Office of International Programs. Owing to the desire to give logistical and safety support for all members of the KUMC community, it is also mandated that any faculty, resident or staff member participating in an international professional experience as a representative of KUMC, register with the Office of International Programs in advance of travel.
