School of Health forms alliance with New York institution

Date 16.11.2015

The University’s School of Health has signed an Agreement of Cooperation and Exchange with the New York College of Podiatric Medicine.

This follows a visit from Dr Bryan Kagan who delivered a guest lecture at the University in November on ‘Working in the US healthcare system’.

It is intended that the alliance will be strengthened by joint research projects and exchange of academic staff, the first of which will be a visit to New York by Dr Mike Curran, Associate Professor, later this year. Plans are already afoot for a joint research bid in the area of forensic podiatry.

Prof Carol Phillips, Deputy Dean for The School of Health, said: “This is a great opportunity for the University and School which enables us to continue and strengthen our international partnerships through research activities, outputs and staff and student exchange.”
