News Article ImageThe Kingdom of Saudi Arabia is the largest Arab country of the Middle East. The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia Ministry of Health has established scholarships for Saudi students to matriculate through Emory's Masters of Public Health (MPH)/Master of Science in Public Health (MSPH) program.

Emory University's Rollins School of Public Health (RSPH) entered into partnership today with the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA) Ministry of Health to facilitate global public health research and provide educational opportunities for Emory and Saudi public health students.

During a ceremony at Emory, a group of delegates headed by KSA Minister of Health H.E. Abdullah Al Rabeeah, MD, are signing a five-year Executive Agreement cementing the new partnership. Emory President James W. Wagner, PhD, and RSPH Dean James W. Curran, MD, MPH, also signed the agreement.

"This partnership opens the way for mutually beneficial collaborative academic activities, including the training of graduate students, applied research activities, scholarly exchanges, and short courses," says Curran. "We welcome the opportunity to work with our Saudi colleagues on expanding education and research initiatives between our two countries."
