Three lecturers from Solomon Islands National University (SINU) have been granted scholarships to study in Taiwan.
Ambassador Victor Yu yesterday congratulated Benjamin Harry Bezo, Jack Vamana and Richard Tatau, on their admission to the Kaohsiung Medical University (KMU).
In order to enhance bilateral cooperation in the field of health, the Republic of China (Taiwan) established Taiwan Health Center (THC) in Solomon Islands in 2005, which were commissioned to operate by Kaohsiung Medical University Chung-Ho Memorial Hospital (KMUH) ever since.
KMU signed a sister university MOU with SINU to cultivate and upgrade SINU faculty capacity for teaching in health related field. Consequently, KMU provides full scholarships to SINU faculty for master course and PhD course.
Leila Ross and Cale Mark completed their master’s degree courses in nursing in June 2016 under this program.
In 2015, Dr. Lester Ross began his PhD course in KMU.
This year three lecturers, Benjamin Harry Bezo, Jack Vamana and Richard Tatau have been admitted to the master’s degree program for eighteen months in KMU.
Ambassador Victor Yu welcomed three lecturers and hopes that their study in KMU will help them advance their professional knowledge, and after graduation they will become the seeds of medical and health care education in SINU.
