Friday, April 25, 2014

Toronto, ON – April 25, 2014 – CDI College has entered into a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the Faculty of Medicine at St. Martinus University in Curaçao. The MOU will allow Canadian students the opportunity to complete a pre-medical program recognized by the University at CDI College’s Mississauga campus.

“Offering the pre-medical program in Ontario will provide a pathway to students looking to study medicine internationally. In addition, faculty and students will benefit from collaborating on course design and outcomes with a respected international University,” said Don Thibert, regional director of operations at CDI College.

"With the growing demand for healthcare professionals, we feel our collaborative efforts with St Martinus University will make a significant impact on continuing to build our intellectual talent of medical professionals." said Rodney D'Souza, Mississauga campus director.

With this new agreement, CDI College and the St. Martinus University, Faculty of Medicine, Curaçao hope to develop further international opportunities that will provide CDI College staff and students the opportunity to exchange learning and benefit from increased collaboration between these two leaders in post-secondary education.
