De La Salle Medical and Health Sciences Institute has agreed to collaborate with the United Kingdom’s InHealth Ltd, the largest independent specialist provider of health diagnostics and screening services in the United Kingdom. The agreement of collaboration is an outcome of initial discussions between InHealth and DLSMHSI’s College of Medical Imaging and Therapy (CMIT) and the De La Salle University Medical Center Department of Radiology on the possibilities of a partnership between the two institutions that will provide the following:
- Scholarships for BS Radiologic Technology and BS Nuclear Medicine Technology students
- Pre-graduate tailored training programs
- Post-graduate certification programs
- Exchange of academic/modular materials and other competency programs
