In autumn-winter semester of the academic year 2016/2017 the University of Saarland (Germany) hosted two Erasmus Plus scholars from Tver State Medical University. The mobility took place in the frame of the inter-institutional agreement for exchange of students and staff with financial support of the Education, Audiovisual and Culture Executive Agency of the European Commission.
The principal objective of Dr. Alexandr Eremeev’s (Head of Department of Surgery and Urology) two-week visit to Homburg was to foster further cooperation in the field of hepato-pancreato-biliary surgery between the participating institutions.
Dr. Evgeniy Shepel’s (PhD student at Department of Surgery and Urology) four-month practicum included active surgical participation in the General, Visceral and Vascular Surgery.
The involved institutions looking forward to maintaining and enhancing the Erasmus Plus relationship in times ahead.
