BTC Partners with Royal College of Surgeons of Ireland on Research
January 10, 2018
The Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland since 2004 has operated a campus in Bahrain. The College prepares medical professionals in a variety of healthcare fields. In the pursuit of collaboratively developing locally-relevant research outcomes, the Bahrain Teachers College and the Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland embarked in 2017 on a partnership for research training. Faculty visits from both sides have encouraged projects focused on skills preparation, higher education instructional practices, and research capacity building. In 2017, Dr. Susan Dovey, Professor of Public Health and Epidemiology at the Royal College of Surgeons of Ireland gave workshops to faculty at the Bahrain Teachers College on strategies for publishing research. Future workshops will be arranged in the 2018-2019 academic year with faculty from both institutions working together.
