UMAP IS is considering supporting 8,000 US$ to develop this program. In achieving this support, the program must lead to sustainable development in various ways and participated by at least three universities/academic institutes from three full member countries in accordance with the decision from UMAP Vice President Forum Coordination Committee meeting at University of Colima.

Since March 2006, Thailand became the Office of the International Secretariat for a 5 years period. At present, Dr. Sumate Yamnoon, Secretary-General of Commission on Higher Education, is the International Secretariat of UMAP, which is an excellent opportunity for Thailand to play a role in international organization like UMAP. This opportunity would benefit academic institutions and Thai students. The Commission on Higher Education has laid out the plans to promote international education in Thailand as follows: promote the opening of quality international program by encouraging foreign academic institutions to manage the program; establish the academic institutions in Thailand to take the central role in exchange of faculty, students, and staff; support the academic institutions to host international conference, seminar, and training; and promote Thailand to be the center of training and research in trade and international development in Asia Pacific. Currently, there are more than 400 academic institutions in Asian-Pacific region from 20 countries in UMAP (both full members and associate members) of which all public and private academic institutions in Thailand are members of UMAP.

UMAP aims to achieve enhanced international understanding through increased mobility of university students and staff. To further promote mobility, UMAP credit transfer scheme (UCTS) was set up to ease the transfer of credit for the participating students. Not only the students would be accepted in the job market in the future, the students also learn foreign culture through this exchange program.

Siriraj and Japan Organized Medical Long-Distant Teleconference Meeting

 

At the 12th floor of Her Majesty Cardiac Center, Assoc. Prof. Rujaporn Chanachai Ph.D., Head of the Division of Nuclear Medicine, Department of Radiology, Faculty of Medicine, Siriraj Hospital, Mahidol University stated that the long-distant medical conference was a result of setting up of the PET-CT (Positron Emission Tomography/Computed Tomography) at the Siriraj Imaging Center on March 5th, 2007.
 
 
PET-CT is used to diagnose various types of cancer as well as brain and cardiac muscle. Even though the PET-CT is a high capacity and effective instrument, it is new, and there isn’t enough medical specialists who can read the result. The Faculty thus sees the importance of hosting conference inviting all related medical personnel to gain more experience in reading the result and usage of PET-CT. The conference allowed the opportunity to exchange and consult with the experts in leading institute abroad. The high-speed internet on the campus was connected to the Faculty of Medicine, Fukui University, Japan. The conference attendants in Japan include The Molecular Imaging Division and Biomedical Imaging Division, and the conference was chaired by Prof. Yasuhisa Fujibayashi, President of Japanese Society for Molecular Imaging.

Furthermore, the Faculty of Medicine, Siriraj Hospital, Mahidol University invited other medical specialists in the field of nuclear medicine from other medical institutes such as from Faculty of Medicine, Chulalongkorn University, Faculty of Medicine, Ramathibodi Hospital, and Chulabhorn Cancer Centre, Chulabhorn Research Institute to attend this conference. The benefits from this conference, not only to develop radiologists’ knowledge in nuclear medicine, but also to exchange ideas with experts abroad in diagnosis. The conference would assist in increase the accuracy of diagnosis performance, and further lead to international collaboration in medicine, which will develop diagnosis, using PET-CT technology as well as maximize the benefit of the available information technology at Faculty of Medicine, Siriraj Hospital, Mahidol University.

Further planning at the Faculty of Medicine, Siriraj Hospital, Mahidol University includes organizing of meetings and other related activities every 2 months. The goal is to benefit the patient who receives the treatment.
