Three young teachers from Uzbekistan and Tajikistan have completed their training in Genetics, Anatomy,
and Pediatric Surgery organized in the framework of the Erasmus+ Capacity Building in Higher Education
project ChildCA – Improvement of children care teaching as a template for modernizing postgraduate
medical education in Central Asia.
The project is coordinated by the University of Pavia – prof. Gian Battista Parigi and GLOBEC – Global Center for Strategic Engagement.
The training participants Qurbonalii Mardonzoda, Manizha Kurbanova, and Dilnoza Khasanova who represent Khatlon Medical State University
(Tajikistan), Avicenna Tajik State Medical University, and Bukhara State Medical Institute (Uzbekistan) spent an entire month in Pavia working at San Matteo Hospital and the Departments of Anatomy and Clinical Genetics.
The training was organized in the context of Work Package 4 (WP4): Training in new teaching techniques (pediatrics, pediatric surgery, neuropsychiatry) of academic staff involved in the new integrated curricula.
The activities are intended for young doctors from Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, and Tajikistan who will learn new teaching methodologies to be applied in the new curricula being developed in Central Asian partner HEIs.
Parallelly, ChildCA EU partners – Jagiellonian University (Poland) and Freiburg University (Germany) hosted another five young teachers from Central Asia who participated in the training in genetics, biochemistry, and metabolic diseases.
