A team from Auburn University (AU), United States of America, has interacted with faculty members of the School of Nursing and Midwifery to explore possible areas of collaboration.

The team from AU comprised Prof. David Crumbleyand Mrs Valarie Thomas.

Areas of Collaboration

At a meeting to discuss the collaboration, both parties agreed in principle to work towards the collaboration in the areas of faculty and student exchanges, joint research and joint grant application.

As part of the processes leading to the implementation of the collaboration, a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) would be signed by the Vice-Chancellors of the two institutions to serve as a blueprint for the collaboration.

UCC School of Nursing Ready for the Collaboration

Welcoming the officials from AU, the Provost of the College of Health and Allied Sciences, Prof. Johnson Nyarko Boampong, commended them for expressing interest in the School of Nursing and Midwifery.

He was confident that the initial discussions between the two institutions would yield good fruit to foster a mutual and beneficial relationship.

He said the School of Nursing was ready for the collaboration and was hopeful that it would help to create opportunities to build capacities of lecturers in the School.

Schools under the College of Health and Allied Sciences                   

Prof. Boampong explained that the College was made up of the School of Medical Sciences, School of Nursing and Midwifery and the School of Allied Health Sciences.

He further indicated that the School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences has been established under the College but was yet to admit students.

He mentioned the fact that the University’s location within Cape Coast-a major tourist destination in Ghana was a major advantage for the School and its collaborators.
