A group of administrators from Pokhara University in Pokhara, Nepal, including Vice Chancellor Professor Dr. Keshar Jung Baral, visited Mahidol University's Faculty of Public Health on August 16, 2010 to discuss possibilities of an MOU between the Mahidol Faculty of Public Health and the corresponding faculties at Pokhara University. The university is relatively new, established in 1997 and is already among the top five universities in Nepal. The university currently has a Bachelor’s degree program in public health and will be launching a Master’s level course of studies in 2011. The team from Pokhara expressed the desire to collaborate on developing a curriculum and the development of Pokhara University faculty. It was agreed at the conclusion of the meeting that an MOU for exchange and collaboration at the faculty level between the two groups would be drafted in the near future.
