GW, Semmelweis University Partner on Academic and Research Initiatives
A new five-year partnership between the George Washington University (GW) and Semmelweis University in Budapest, Hungary, will lead to collaborations on academic and research initiatives aimed at developing exchange programs and interprofessional education for faculty and students at GW.
The goals of the partnership include harmonizing research plans and creating joint grant submissions. The collaboration also includes conducting faculty and student exchange programs. In addition, GW lecturers will go to Semmelweis University to train professors to enhance their performance in online and blended education, as well as clinical simulations.
GW will also integrate Semmelweis University into the GW Collaboratory, which is a mostly virtual environment where stakeholders work and communicate to achieve an understanding of complex health-related issues, design innovations and solutions, participate as collaborators, and improve health and health care.
