PTS Signs Agreement with Ibn Sina Hospital in Rabat

The Granada Health Science Technological Park (PTS) and the Ibn Sina Hospital Complex in Rabat (Morocco), which encompasses ten specialist healthcare centres, have signed a collaboration agreement in Rabat. The aim of the agreement is to "coordinate, promote and carry out activities of mutual benefit and exchange in healthcare, teaching and scientific research". These are the words of the managing director of the PTS Foundation, Jesús Quero, who signed the agreement along with the director general of Ibn Sina, Abdelkader Errougani.

Jesús Quero went on to talk about the importance of the agreement with the Ibn Sina Hospital Complex, run by Morocco's Ministry of Health, "because it is a centre of reference in the Rabat-Salé-Zemmour-Zaër region, as in addition to providing medical care it is also involved in clinical training for undergraduate and postgraduate students of medicine and pharmacy".

PTS and Ibn Sina collaborative activities will include professional exchanges and observerships, the establishment of new working groups for specific topics, completion of studies and research projects, a series of training activities, and projects to promote health and the quality of healthcare.

The agreement also sets out a series of areas of collaboration, such as: sharing experiences of management and healthcare, teaching and research; introducing innovations in therapeutic and diagnostic activities; carrying out healthcare-related biomedical, epidemiological and clinical research programmes; designing legal medicine activities; and running ongoing training programmes for different levels and areas of health sciences in collaboration with the relevant organisations.

The agreement was signed just before the PTS took part in the Medical Expo 2015 International Health Fair in Casablanca. Medical Expo is the most important health fair in Africa and Jesús Quero said that one of the main objectives of the PTS' attendance was to promote the Granada Health brand.

According to Mr Quero, the PTS attended the Medical Expo to promote its status "as Europe's only space for technology transfer specialising in health", and PTS representatives "increased awareness of the Park's business, healthcare, teaching and research activities, and also promoted and raised awareness of the Granada Health brand." Mr Quero continued by saying that "visitors to our stand were able to find out a lot of information about other centres and organisations that are based in or collaborate with the PTS, such as the East Andalusia Biomedical Research Foundation (FIBAO), the Andalusian School of Public Health, and the Foundation for Technological Advancement and Professional Training (IAVANTE), based in the CMAT building in the PTS".
