One dozen students from the Massachusetts Amherst University and the Widener University of Pensilvania are studying at Universidad CEU San Pablo a specific Nursing program. Training includes subjects such as ‘Perspective in Nursing’, ‘Issues of Aging in a Global Society’ and ‘Anatomy y Physiology’.
In addition to these subjects, students share class with Spanish colleagues in elective topics of the Faculty of Arts, Communication Sciences, Faculty of Pharmacy and Medicine. The practical part has consisted on a visit to Hospital HM de Montepríncipe where they have visited the new born ICU among other areas of the hospital.
Not long ago, directors of the Massachusetts Amherst University visited the installations of CEU USP to monitor the program and consider future collaborations.
Ainhoa Uribe, associate professor to the Internationalization and Digital Transformation Vice-Dean of the University met with the Associate Dean of the University of Massachusetts, Kalpen Trivedi, with the Professor of Nursing, Emma Dundon and the Executive Director of Academic Programs International (API), John Endrud as well as its partner in Spain, Enrique Blanco.
All of them were interested in the evolution of EEUU students during a visit where they were guided by the coordinator of the Centre for Study Abroad, Teresa Mª Cilleruelo and the Consultant of International Education, Rosa Almoguera. They also had the opportunity to know first-hand the CEMBIO (Centre of Metamolobics and Bioanalysis), the dissection room of the Faculty of Medicine, the practices of clinical simulation and the radio and TV studio of the Faculty of Arts and Communication Sciences. The visit also counted with the collaboration of the Academic Secretary and Professor Carolina Hurtado and Professors Vanesa Alonso, Guillermo Charneco, Isabel Frígido, Ángela Magnet, Mª Soledad Fenoy Rodríguez, Sonia Rodríguez and Juan Antonio de Muga.
