This agreement encourages healthcare workers, research and technical personnel to participate in postgraduate activities and training programmes in order to reinforce scientific activities.
It includes sharing experience and personnel in the fields of teaching, research, management, administration and culture in general, which will benefit both institutions’ scientific and academic activities.
The agreement encourages "the participation of joint work between the two institutions” and encourages cooperation "in training programmes for healthcare workers, research and technical personnel”, as well as the exchange of books, scientific publications and other material on research, teaching and care.
In order to carry out these and other activities, the British Hospital and CLAEH will design a programme which will be evaluated periodically. In the future, other specific scientific-academic initiatives can be added.
Research and development projects and scientific exchange and outreach activities are carried out with the Universidad Católica.
"Biomedical Engineering Development Programme"
The main purpose of the agreement between the British Hospital and the UCU is the cooperation and mutual technical support for the organisation and execution of a "Biomedical Engineering and IT healthcare Development Programme."
The joint work between both institutions refers to both Research and Development projects as well as academic or product development activities and acknowledges as background information the activities that have been carried out for some time by Dr Hamlet Suárez in the Neuro-otology Laboratory.
Advanced university students in Engineering and Medicine work as interns at the British Hospital, working on product development tasks, such as hardware and software, and theoretical research, among other tasks.
Between 2004 and 2013 the British Hospital was accredited by the Graduate School of the Faculty of Medicine of Universidad de la República (UDELAR).
On June 22, 2012, the Department of Plastic Surgery of the British Hospital and the Hand Surgery Service of the Pontifícia Universidade Católica do Rio Grande do Sul signed an agreement for creating a joint theoretical-practical module on EXTENSION IN MICROSURGICAL REPAIR, to be carried out in both institutions.
This collaboration agreement with the UIC was developed and executed by Prof. Juan Carlos Bagattini in order to implement a teacher exchange programme for training the professionals at the British Hospital and sharing knowledge, through regular teleconferences and second medical opinion.
Since 2017, the British Hospital has been chosen by the Massachusetts Hospital as a reference centre to carry out its internship programme and continue the medical training of its residents in our Department of Medicine.
