Our work with the Ministry of Health, Republic of Kazakhstan

We worked with the Ministry of Health in Kazakhstan to develop curricula for undergraduate, residency, master's, and doctorate programs.

Delivering new curriculum proposals for government

Our academic consultants twice visited the ministry in Astana.

Our specialists worked in partnership with leaders in healthcare education, understanding their existing programmes and running faculty development seminars.

The project resulted in the delivery of new curriculum proposals to the Ministry of Health in 2015.
