On 27 July a Memorandum of Understanding between the School of Nursing and Midwifery, Trinity and Taipei Medical University was signed by Prof. Kuei-Ru Chou, Dean of the College of Nursing at Taipei Medical University, Prof. Juliette Hussey, Vice President of Global Relations TCD and Prof. Anne-Marie Brady, Head of School of Nursing and Midwifery TCD. The MOU will promote cooperation in nursing education, educational exchanges and scientific research between Trinity and TMU.
This is a Memorandum of Understanding between the School of Nursing and Midwifery, Trinity and Taipei Medical University to promote cooperation in nursing education, educational exchanges and scientific research between Trinity and TMU. The following types of collaboration will be pursued:
- Exchange of visiting research scholars;
- Joint research projects in the field of Nursing;
- Participation in international conferences, seminars, symposia, workshops and other activities agreed by both parties; and
- Exchange of academic materials and other information.
Positioning the school as a premier School of Nursing and Midwifery globally is an intrinsic part of the schools strategic plan. Collaborating with international institutions such as TMU to promote nursing education and research has a vital role to play in achieving this goal. It will broaden opportunities for staff and student mobility and provide opportunity for quality international research collaboration in the field of Nursing.
This is the first school specific MOU to be signed with a Non-EU University.
The School of Nursing and Midwifery is delighted to embark upon this Memorandum of Understanding with Taipei Medical University. There are a number of common ‘wicked problems’ that challenge available healthcare resources and capacity across the world and healthcare graduates are operating in an increasingly globalised work environment. This collaboration between our two institutions provides a valuable opportunity for exchange of ideas around education, research & innovation in modern health care and is a positive and welcome development for the School. We have had the pleasure of hosting undergraduate students from TMU on our Summer International School in 2017 and their presence contributed to an excellent exchange of ideas with insights to diverse health system solutions and approaches across the world. We look forward to building upon this relationship into the future and creating collaborations of mutual benefit to our two organisations
