Once program admission has been confirmed, medical clearance for travel is required from an Experimenter’s healthcare provider(s). Experimenter health histories and provider clearances are then thoroughly reviewed by our medical team. This detailed-oriented health review process allows The Experiment to anticipate many health-related risks on program and to facilitate appropriate management of these risks.
During the health review process, a member of The Experiment medical team may contact Experimenters and families to follow up on health information provided, discuss program realities, and clarify expectations of and for the Experimenter, their family, and Experiment program staff. To facilitate management and support of certain medical and mental health concerns on program, individual Experimenter Wellness Plans may be created collaboratively prior to travel.
Full disclosures of health histories and concerns are vital to the success of the health review process and to Experimenters’ preparation for safe and successful programs. Any changes to the Experimenter’s health history or status that arise between the submission of their health forms and their departure for program must also be immediately disclosed to The Experiment. Up-to-date health information allows Experiment group leaders and risk management staff to best support Experimenters’ health and wellness on program.
All information will be kept confidential and shared securely with Experiment group leaders and in-country partners as needed to facilitate planning and support for anticipated health concerns and response for any healthcare needs that may arise on program.
