Trinity College, Dublin Ireland; Tel Aviv University,Tel Aviv Israel
Rapid expansion in information and communication infrastructure has fostered a tremendous increase in availability of technological and intellectual resources leading to a globalization of scientific research. The purpose of our global graduate education program is to encourage and assist candidate level graduate students to include within theireducational plan the advantages of virtual and/or direct collaborations within the international research community. Toward fulfillment of this goal we have established cooperative educational and research interactions with Trinity College, Ireland and with Tel Aviv University, Israel. The interactions with Trinity College began in 2009 and include a formal agreement of Academic Co-operation, approved by the Regents, between UM Medical School and Trinity College School of Medicine. Recently, our global educational and research activity has been expanded to include Sagol School of Neuroscience at Tel Aviv University.
The Global Engagement of Graduate Education Program enables Ph.D. students from participating institutions to conduct research at the partner institutions as part of their training, facilitating the pooling of intellect and creation of centers of excellence in the international arena.
