National Global Health Lead

Mike Guilbert

Favourite thing about SKIP… Its inclusivity. It doesn’t matter who you are or what your experience is, we will provide all of the training and support you need to participate in one of our projects, all without charging big voluntourism fees! Training has been my passion on SKIP and this is one of the reasons I wanted to run for National Global Health Coordinator.

SKIP history… I went out on project to Malawi in 2017 with the Glasgow branch and subsequently served as training coordinator for another two years before moving to the National Committee in 2019.

Ask me about… The role of global health in SKIP, and the careers that SKIP opens up to you – from organisations such as Médecins Sans Frontières and the International Committee of the Red Cross. 

Outside of SKIP… I am a final-year medical student and a 2nd Lieutenant in the British Army, roles that have both fed into my SKIP skillset as well as benefited from it.
