Graduation JMHPE Egypt

On the 26th of April we witnessed the 9th graduation of the Joint Master of Health Professions Education, a collaboration between Maastricht University and Suez Canal University. 23 graduates from the African and Middle Eastern region travelled to Ismailia, Egypt, for the festivities in light of their great accomplishment.

Dr. Renée Stalmeijer (MHPE director) and Dr. Jan van Dalen (JMHPE co-director) joined Prof. Wagdy Talaat (JMHPE director) in congratulating the participants and their family. We even had the honor to welcome the Dutch ambassador to Egypt, Mr. Gerard Steeghs, who commended the JMHPE as one of the great collaborations between Egypt and the Netherlands working towards better health professions education in the region. Congratulations to all involved!
