Mission & Objectives

The School of Health Professions Education (SHE) started a new branch of international activities and collaborations in 2012. With the strength of the SHE approach, these new initiatives were developed into “SHE Collaborates”.

SHE Collaborates is an office for international collaboration in health professions education. The office capitalises on Maastricht University’s more than 35years of experience implementing student-centered learning in medicine and the health sciences.
Through innovative training and consulting in the areas of education, management and research, we promote improvement in health professions education practices. We work with partners from a variety of disciplines, educational backgrounds and cultures.

Geraldine Beaujean MD, MHPE is the Project Manager for SHE Collaborates:

SHE Collaborates' mission is to improve healthcare globally, by facilitating higher educational institutes in realising educational innovation. We provide quality and excellence in our tailor-made services. SHE Collaborates aims to maintain long-term collaborations with institutes for medical or health sciences in countries all over the world.
