Three new PhD researchers from the Mongolian National University of Medical Sciences (MNUMS) have joined the PhD programme of the Faculty of Medical Sciences of the University of Groningen.

The new researchers have joined the programme under an agreement signed by the University in 2012 with the Mongolian State Training Fund and the Mongolian Ministry of Edcuation. The agreement brought a first Mongolian funded PhD researcher to Groningen in 2014. The Medical Faculty also contributes to an update of the health curriculum of the MNUMS (following a transfer of the Groningen curriculum in the early 1990s).
CEASG has assisted the formulation of the PhD agreement and the inital selection of the candidates in Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia. Four further Mongolian candidates are currently under consideration for a PhD programme in Groningen.
