UMH LAUNCHES A WEBPAGE IN CHINESE TO EXPAND ACCESSIBILITY TO ASIAN STUDENTS

The Vice Rectorate for International Relations at the Miguel Hernández University of Elche (UMH) and the Service of Communication, which works under the UMH Vice Rectorate for Institutional Relations, have launched a new UMH website in Chinese as a part of its projection and expansion activities in Asia. Also collaborating in the promotion of this action was the Service of Innovation and Technical Support for Education and Research (SIATDI), which is part of the Vice Rectorate for Information Technology.

This new webpage features UMH teaching, academic, and organizational contents, in addition to a university presentation, representative figures and data, rankings, undergraduate and graduate degree programs, and research institutes and centers. Throughout 2018, the UMH has made significant internationalization and projection efforts in Asia. Specifically, UMH representatives have attended various meeting and have signed agreements with the universities of Shenzhen (Guangdong), Anhui Normal (Wuhu), Zhengzhou (Henan), Guangzhou Polytechnic of Sports (Guangdong), as well as with different centers, clubs, and athletic associations in those cities.

The UMH is cooperating in promoting areas such as fine arts, engineering, the humanities and athletics, but it is the latter of these where efforts are being focused, given the interest shown by these Asian universities toward UMH education and research in this area. With respect to these activities, the UMH received a delegation from the University of Shenzhen in late June, and is set to receive another group from the Guangzhou Polytechnic of Sports in mid-October, a visit in which the Elche City Hall, through its Sports Council, will also be participating.  

In line with this strategy, the UMH is also going to carry out activities that publicize it on Chinese social networks, such as Weibo, by uploading significant audiovisual material that is already available on social networks about the UMH.

MIGUEL HERNÁNDEZ UNIVERSITY TRAINS PERUVIAN HEALTH PROFESSIONALS

Alejandro Quiroz Morey, a medical resident at the Regional Hospital in Loreto (Peru), will receive training at the Alicante University General Hospital for three months thanks to a development cooperation project run by the Service of International Relations, Development Cooperation and Volunteerism at the Miguel Hernández University of Elche (UMH). This action is co-funded by the Generalitat Valenciana and part of the Convenio 2017 established between the UMH and the Consellería of Transparency, Social Responsibility, Participation and Cooperation at the GV for the completion of the University Development Cooperation Project.

This cooperation project, which started early this year, began with a journey by José Manuel Ramos, a physician in the UMH Department of Clinical Medicine, to the locality of Iquitos, Peru, to coordinate refinement courses on HIV/AIDS infection at the National University of the Peruvian Amazon. During those sessions, close to 70 medical professionals from the localities around the region of Loreto learned about new procedures and diagnoses for the care of HIV/AIDS patients.

Currently, Quiroz is assigned to the Unit of Infectious Diseases at the Alicante hospital, and there he is participating by caring for patients in said unit. This experience will help provide professionals with the knowledge necessary for diagnosing infectious diseases with procedures and tools that are unavailable at hospitals in Loreto. As UMH faculty member, José Manuel Ramos, explains, that region is one of the most disadvantaged in Peru, thus the importance for its health personnel to learn new tools for diagnosing and providing medical attention.

During these three months, the medical resident will acquire knowledge about administering treatments for transplant patients, executing control programs and using antibiotics, and about treatments that patients with cardiopulmonary diseases require.

Development cooperation projects run by the UMH facilitate improvements in the living conditions of disadvantaged groups, thus contributing to the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals, with education, training and research lines as key lines for achieving them.
