UOWD partners with TAHPI to launch courses in Heath Planning

Health matters.....
Dubai, (UAE): The University of Wollongong in Dubai (UOWD) has decided to start Short Certificate Courses in Health Planning to meet increasing demand for skilled professionals.

In this regard, The University of Wollongong in Dubai (UOWD) has entered into a collaborative partnership with Australia-based TAHPI Pty Limited (Total Alliance Health Partners International).

As the UAE’s healthcare industry continues to experience unprecedented growth, the new agreement will see UOWD and TAHPI establish Short Certificate programmes to meet an increasing demand for skilled professionals to drive the development of the sector.

TAHPI opened its offices in Dubai Healthcare City in April this year. TAHPI is the largest specialist health design firm in Australasia, with an unmatched depth of experience and specialist technology. TAHPI or Total Alliance Health Projects International provides a complete range of consultancy services for Health Facility Planning, Design and Commissioning under one umbrella.

The organisation provides a comprehensive range of services in the health planning, design and operational commissioning services for healthcare projects. The company has been involved in the setting up of standards and guidelines as well as the training and professional development of healthcare planners, architects and managers for over 13 years.

The new programs will be focused on health service planning, health facility planning, biomedical equipment planning and health facility operational commissioning services. The courses will be delivered on an intensive basis by professional experts in the respective fields.

The partnership was formalised with the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding between UOWD and TAHPI, at the Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum Academic Medical Center in Dubai Healthcare City (DHCC).

Signing the agreement on behalf of UOWD, University President, Professor Trevor Spedding said, “We are delighted to enter into this partnership with TAHPI, which will bring global experts from the medical field to train healthcare practitioners right here in the UAE.

“The collaboration represents UOWD’s ongoing drive to foresee and address the needs of the local labour market. As the demand for healthcare continues to grow in the region, we need to ensure that education works alongside advancements in equipment, techniques, and infrastructure, to establish a system that represents the best international standards.’’

Professor Paul Wellings, CBE - Vice Chancellor, UOW, added, “Our partnership with TAHPI brings together quality Australian educational practices with global experts in the health planning field, to deliver a series of programs that will develop the capacity of the sector to effectively meet this ever-increasing demand.”

The programs will benefit practitioners across a wide range of healthcare-related disciples, from architects and facilities managers to biomedical engineers and epidemiologists. Initially, each of the courses will run four times a year.

Signing the agreement on behalf of TAHPI, Mr Aladin Niazmand, Global Director, said, “Healthcare spending requires a substantial proportion of every country’s GDP. We believe it is essential to provide a formal, educational forum for the decision makers, officials, advisors and consultants responsible for the various aspects of this field. I believe Dubai and particularly the DHCC can be the perfect setting for introducing these courses.”

This article is written by IITians in theblog








If asked to compare IIT Bombay to IIT Delhi, most students say that the difference is negligible. Both are in metropolitan cities with good options for hostels, PG accommodations, food and entertainment. Cultural activities are equally good as is the faculty and study methodology. Even placements at the two IITS are amongst the best in the country. Yet figures indicate that the top JEE rank holders prefer Computer Science Engineering at IIT Mumbai rather than IIT Delhi. But, we are here to tell you when and why you can avoid IIT Mumbai.

Mumbai IIT was earlier placed in the suburbs, away from the crowds, giving IITians the space and peace to pursue their career goals. Today the area in Powai is surrounded by high rise building, malls and traffic snarls, bringing with it all the clatter and patter of a metropolitan hub. Just like the population and popularity of Powai and its neighbouring areas has grown, so has the quality of education at thi…
