Mangaluru: THIM Vanderlan Director of THIM university Netherlands and Kevin Engleman international manager and Professor of THIM university visited the Father Muller Charitable Institutions on Jan 30 2023. They were welcomed by the Director FMCI Rev. Fr Richard Aloysius Coelho who had extended them an invitation to visit India and the Institutions during his visit for an MOU signing in Netherlands and Switzerland.
The crux of the visit was the Memorandum of Understanding signed for Research collaboration, Faculty and student exchange programs between the Dept of Physiotherapy, FMMC and THIM. International focus group discussion will be conducted from April 1, 2023, for BPT Interns, where they will have to interact with students from the Netherlands, Switzerland, Spain, Turkey and Ireland where they will discuss Physiotherapy related topics.
The members of the Management Committee met for a fruitful discussion. The guests were astonished at the number of patients the hospital handles and the Department of Physiotherapy handles. The academic and patient activity being in a single campus too was praised since the western campuses have separate teaching and hospital campuses. The vastness and diversity of the Indian state were much appreciated and the reception that they received from the airport to the campus with people greeting them was humbling. Later in the day, they had a presentation and discussion on newer physiotherapy practices for the faculty and students.
