College to House Regional Centre of Education

The Fiji National University’s College of Medicine, Nursing and Health Sciences has been selected by the World Federation.

They have been selected for the Ultrasound in Medicine and Biology as the site for its future Pacific Region Centre of Education.

The major decision to set up a WFUMB CoE in Oceania and the Pacific was ratified at the WFUMB 2017 congress held in Taipei.

Head of Department of Medical Imaging and Anatomy at the College, Raymond Keshwan, says this was a milestone achievement for the College and the ultrasound practitioners in Fiji and the region.

Keshwan says the College and Suva will become the regional hub for training multidisciplinary users of ultrasound.

He says the establishment of the CoE, by mid-2019, is invaluable as it will assist professionals in diagnosing, monitoring, assessing and treatment of diseases.

The new Centre of Education will utilize the excellent facilities in Medical Imaging within the College and will focus on our regional needs in the field of ultrasound.

As part of the arrangement, WFUMB will financially support the CoE around $10,000 annually for at least the next five years.
