“Erasmus+” is a European educational program operating in the fields of education, youth policy and sport for the period 2014-2020 This program aims to identify and address the socio-economic changes and challenges that Europe will face until the end of this decade. The program guarantees the implementation of the “Europe 2020” strategy within the framework of job creation, increased social inclusion and equality.

This program provides for the possibility of obtaining a grant from the European Commission for teachers, students and employees of partner universities who are fluent in English. Bukhara State Medical Institute also takes an active part in key events on educational mobility of students, teaching staff and university staff within the framework of the program “Mobility of students and staff in the field of higher education between the countries participating in the Program and partner countries”

586094-EPP-1-2017-1-EPPKA2-CBHE-JP IHOD: Improving Treatment Outcomes for Chronic Diseases – Improving the Master’s Program.

Project website:

Description: Chronic diseases are the leading cause of death in the partner countries of Uzbekistan, Vietnam and Russia. All partner governments place particular emphasis on measures to tackle chronic diseases. The World Health Organization notes that there is a need to increase the capacity of health workers in this area and noted that training of health workers at the initial level is insufficient to deal with diabetes. Enhanced graduate-level training is needed to improve health outcomes and reduce the economic burden of chronic disease.    

Partner countries lack or do not have a specific area to be targeted by this project.    

The specific goal of this project is to support the modernization of the curriculum at the master’s level by developing new and innovative courses and methodologies in medical research related to chronic diseases.

Key results are:

  • Conducting a study trip to EU universities
  • Development of the approach and requirements for the master’s program
  • Curriculum development according to ECTS guidelines
  • Development of 12 modules and short courses
  • Development of programs for staff training and mobility
  • Conducting 3 week continuing education courses in the EU
  • Conducting 3x 2 week courses “train the trainers” at partner universities
  • Launch of master’s programs followed by courses to train the trainersConducting a three-month student mobility

        The impact of the project will be felt in the health sector as health workers are trained in the new curriculum using a holistic approach to patient care and public health that acts as a model for other professionals in the sector. The beneficiaries of the project are patients who ultimately benefit from improved medical competencies and governments who can reduce the cost of treating chronic diseases.

“ModeHEd” – reforming medical education in universities Further strengthening of international cooperation of the Bukhara State Medical Institute, the introduction of world standards in the educational process, as well as increasing the effectiveness of the Erasmus + program in the framework of the project “ModeHEd”.

The international project “CHILDCA – Improving Childcare Training as a Template for the Modernization of Postgraduate Medical Education in Central Asia”, coordinated by the University of Pavia and funded by the European Commission in the amount of 997,977.00 euros, will be implemented during 2019-2021.

The aim of the project is to support the modernization, professionalization and internationalization of postgraduate training in the field of child care management in Central Asia, knowledge exchange and training of doctors in the field of pediatrics, surgery and neuropsychiatry in children. This is a joint project organized as a feasibility study to become a structural project for the sustainable and long-term improvement of the organization of postgraduate medical training in the countries of Central Asia, not only in pediatrics, but also in other fields of medicine.

The objectives of the project are to reform the pediatric, surgical pediatrics and pediatric neuropsychiatry curriculum by training local academic staff and introducing new technologies and teaching methods, to provide a solid foundation in pediatric training of primary health care professionals, to promote people-to-people communication, intercultural awareness and mutual understanding in a network of universities from several countries, to raise and improve  Quality of specialists trained in Central Asian universities who are engaged in childcare, both at the level of hospitals and in primary care, through the development and implementation of new constructive and joint training programs on child care management, resorting to updating the content and modern teaching methods, such as e-learning components and simulation-based learning, as well as the introduction of ICT for effective virtual interaction between partner universities.

The budget of the project allocated for the Bukhara State Medical Institute is 78,908.00 euros for the plan of costs necessary for its implementation, including 36,000.00 euros for the creation and equipping of interactive rooms (during the first 6 months). The project budget includes costs for the purchase of materials, services of third-party organizations, depreciation of buildings, machinery, equipment and intangible assets, payment of wages. The results of the project will be new curricula and new training strategies dedicated to integrated child care, harmonized with those adopted in the European Union and aimed at achieving the same results. It is hoped that the end result will be a decrease in infant mortality and a significant increase in life expectancy at birth for the population of central Asian countries, which currently live on average about ten years less than the population of the European Union.
