Dean of Research Office

  • We are pleased to invite you to an informational workshop on the second call for the Palestinian-Quebec Science Bridge 2018-2019, which aims at fostering and promoting research collaboration between Palestinian researchers (especially early career and junior researchers) and Quebecois researchers, by funding research visits of varying lengths (3-6 months) in three main areas -  medical and health sciences; natural sciences, engineering, and technology; and social sciences, the humanities and the arts.

    In this workshop, we will host three BU faculty members, Ms. Sherin Hazboun, Mr. Alex Hadweh, and Dr. Khader Jum'a, who were awarded this research grant, to speak about their experiences in this research collaboration initiative. The meeting will be held at 12:00 am on Thursday, Nov 1, 2018 in L005.

Faculty of Nursing and Health Sciences/ Oncology and Palliative Care Program

For the second consecutive year, the Faculty of Nursing and Health Sciences was able to send nurses to get part of their clinical placement training in the field of Oncology and Palliative care to London and Glasgow hospitals. The training was sponsored by the hospitals and the Mayor of Glasgow.

We were able to send two of our students, Bilal Awad and Mohamad Salah, to get the training from 1 until 12 October 2018. They were trained by Mr. Gerry O’hare, Mr. Matthew Fowler, and a group of nurses and doctors who are specialized in Oncology and Palliative care.

This is considered as one of the important milestones of the program besides the high-quality teaching delivered to the students over 18 months. This way, we guarantee to produce fully equipped nurses who are ready to serve cancer patients with higher level of services as well as to improve the field itself.
