During the month of August 2015, an academic delegation of 15 lecturers teaching MBBS students went to the UK for a 3 week training program. This training program was run by the College of Medicine, Biomedical Sciences and Psychology at the University of Leicester through the Biomedical CPD Project. This program consists of an excellent course of practical English listening and speaking skills, teaching methodology, guided experiments and medical research presentations.

All of the delegates learned of common teaching methods in biomedical education in the UK, of tools and techniques in bioinformatics, and observed demonstration lectures in genes, genetics, forensic genetics as well as genetic experiments. The delegates were totally impressed by the passion and enthusiasm demonstrated by the tutors at Leicester. They also acquired a unique experience of being students themselves once again, to witness how to combine teaching with entertaining. The teaching methodologies PBL, CBL, TBL, as well as assessment and feedback, were integrated into the teaching sessions.

Visiting the lab at Leicester made a deep impression on the delegates because it is people protective and people oriented. On the “academic theme day”, they had the opportunity to hear 15 researchers' reports in biomedical sciences which were useful guidance to their own research development.

During the training, the delegation took the good opportunity to discuss furthercollaborations with the University of Leicester for personnel exchange,distance teaching and research cooperation. This will offer new opportunitiesfor extensive international exchanges and collaborations between the two institutions.
