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 their educational plan the advantages of virtual and/or direct collaborations within the international research community. Toward fulfillment of this goal, a formal agreement of Academic Co-operation was established between the UM Medical School and Trinity College School of Medicine, Dublin, Ireland (www.medicine.tcd.ie). The program enables Ph.D. students and post-doctoral fellows from both institutions to conduct research at the partner university as part of their training, facilitating the pooling of intellect and creation of centers of excellence in the international arena.
