Pitt to help establish Kazakhstani medical school

Pitt’s link to Nazarbayev University is about to deepen: The School of Medicine has been chosen to help the Kazakhstani institution establish its medical school.

According to a release, school faculty will teach in English using an American-style medical curriculum. The University will counsel Nazarbayev officials on everything from the development of its courses, syllabi and clinical experiences to the design of its teaching facilities and administrative structure.

Pitt’s association with Nazarbayev began in 2011 with training provided to its research personnel in the Center for Life Sciences and elsewhere by Pitt faculty (see above). One year ago, UPMC began aiding Nazarbayev’s development of several research facilities, which will include an outpatient clinic, a hospital and a hotel.
