One of the main goals of the Visiting Professors’ program at IHSM is to bring knowledge from all over the world into the classroom. This initiative is aimed to use the experience of the Visiting Professors from abroad to enhance student learning accomplishment and skills, as well as strengthening external partnerships with other institutions worldwide.

The Visiting Professors’ program is committed to scientific and cultural diversity and welcomes international instructors to share their know-hows and experiences with IHSM students.

Under the objectives of this initiative, senior instructors participate in course development, face-to-face teaching and mentoring of medical students at the host university for at least 12 days a year for three years.
