Budapest, February 25 (MTI) – Budapest’s Semmelweis University and South Korean medical equipment maker Samsung Medison have signed an agreement on establishing a training centre at the Hungarian university, the economy ministry told MTI on Thursday.
Under the agreement signed by Semmelweis University rector Ágoston Szél and Samsung Medison executive vice president Wayne Spittle, the institution to be set up at Semmelweis University will serve as the South Korean company’s regional training centre for central and eastern Europe.
The institution will provide training in modern diagnostic procedures using the company’s latest imaging technologies to medical students and graduates.
