For over two decades, Cardiff University has been running a highly acclaimed Post Graduate programme in Palliative Medicine. In 2007, the University signed an MOU with Bangalore Hospice Trust, whereby Karunashraya has become the centre hosting the Diploma Course for doctors in India and other neighbouring countries. Altogether over 75 doctors have been successfully complete the diploma and several gone on to undertake their MSc.
This has been a long and fruitful partnership and we are delighted the MOU has been extended to 2017. The expertise of the staff in the Department of Palliative Medicine in Cardiff has also helped us to devise several short-term programmes (one to three days) for local doctors, nurses and other Health Care Professionals.
