GHLO Collaborative Payment Instructions

GHLO Collaborative Payment Instructions

We are very pleased that your institution is ready to process payment for you to join Association of American Medical Colleges’ (AAMC)’s Global Health Learning Opportunities (GHLO) Collaborative!

Before initiating payment, please review the GHLO Collaborative fee and invoice thoroughly.  The GHLO fee may be paid using any one of the below payment methods.  Review the payment options and choose the one that is most convenient for your institution.

The wire transfer is our preferred method of payment. We ask that if you pay by wire, you do so through Western Union Business Solutions as described below. 

Benefits to using Western Union Business Solutions for your method of payment are:

·                    Your institution has the ability to pay in your own currency 

·                    There are no hidden fees by paying in your own currency 

·                    Your payment can be tracked 

·                    The fees are less expensive than by paying bank to bank or with a credit card 


Note:  Attempting to pay by wire through other methods may incur additional charges, which could result in your GHLO fee payment being less than the amount required and this will prolong the onboarding and renewal process.  To avoid a delay, please ensure the full payment amount is received by GHLO.

If you have any questions, please contact Adriane Lopez at and she will be happy to assist.


General instructions for all payment methods:

1. Wire transfer:

The Association of American Medical Colleges works with Western Union Business Solutions (WUBS), an online website, to provide international institutions an easy method for paying the GHLO Collaborative fee.

In order to properly credit your account when wiring funds, please be sure to indicate AAMC-GHLO and the INVOICE NUMBER with wiring instructions.
