UPMC, Pitt Open Khazakstan Medical School

A July agreement between Kazakhstan's Nazarbayev University and University of Pittsburgh Medical Center's Pitt School of Medicine will help NU open its first medical school, according to a report from The Pitt News.

The agreement sets the stage for the opening of a four-year medical school in Astana, Kazakhstan, by 2015. UPMC will provide guidance and oversight in all areas, including construction specifications, admissions policies, faculty appointments and curriculum design and will remain in constant contact with the school throughout the process.

This agreement follows another between UPMC and Kazakhstan made last year to develop a national oncology treatment and research center in the country, according to the report.
