The National Public Health Development Fund (NPHD) and the International Healthcare Equity Agency (IHEA) jointly launched an international project to help young oncologists in Kazakhstan acquire world-class knowledge of the field. The International Postgraduate School of Medicine, for which E-Quadrat Science & Education is a strategic consultant, is a blended format programme that includes both class-time and hand-on experience in international hospitals.
“This project is an excellent example of the benefits of transnational education. It helps to bring a world-class level of education to the country and boost the growth of the next generation of physicians in
Kazakhstan and for
Kazakhstan. TNE is a very important driver of education excellence in transition economies, and a big priority for E-Quadrat. We are thrilled to provide our expertise and to back NPHD and IHEA in this endeavour. We envision a huge potential for this project and believe that it will expand significantly within the next few years. And that growth and expansion is something we are happy to support”, says E-Quadrat CEO Egor Yablokov
Twenty young doctors from Atyrau, Astana, Almaty, Shymkent, and Karaganda are also helping to launch the IPSM programme as its first residents, selected from more than 300 applications. Applicants were assessed over four rounds and had to demonstrate not only specific medical competencies, but also strong soft skills—the ability to communicate, quickly adapt to changes and make decisions in non-standard situations. Classes began on 1 October.
