UniGE visits Ghana

Dr. Rafael Ruiz de Castaneda from the University of Geneva (Switzerland) met Prof. Richmond Aryeetey and his team at the Department of Biostatistics, and Prof. Julius Fobil at the Department of Biological, Environmental and Occupational Health Sciences of the School of Public Health of University of Ghana (Accra) from the 24-26th September 2012. The main objective of this visit was to obtain a closer notion on the academic system (type of credit system and accreditation process) used at the University of Ghana and identify specifically the training needs of teaching staff and students in the field of Medical Informatics and Environmental Health. The information gathered during these meetings will be particularly relevant for the development of courses of WP4 making possible to specifically adjust their content and structure to the training needs.
