Dear CAM Friends,
I am writing to bring to your attention the Ace Traditional Medicine Program, which might be of interest to higher education institutions as well as education focused institutions in your country or your institution. The program, which is spearheaded by the Singapore Office of Traditional Medicine aims to promote the international engagement of academic scholarship and build linkages between Singapore and overseas eligible institutions. Through this program, Singapore Ace Traditional Medicine professionals undertake short-term collaborative projects with their counterparts at higher education institutions as well as non-academic institutions whose primary goals include, but are not limited to, education focused programming, the expansion of partnerships between universities and specialized institutions, or the promotion of international and cross-institutional cooperation in eligible countries. The goals of the Ace Traditional Medicine Program (ATMP) are:
- To increase the participation of leading Traditional Medicine professionals in Singapore academic exchanges
- To encourage new activities that go beyond the traditional Singapore activities of lecturing and research, and
- To promote increased connections between higher education institutions in the Singapore and other countries
The ACE Traditional Medicine Program(ATMP) focuses on strengthening and supporting the development needs of higher education institutions and non-academic institutions, whose primary goals include, but are not limited to, education focused programming, the expansion of partnerships between universities and specialized institutions, or the promotion of international and cross-institutional cooperation. Project activities may include teacher training, short-term lecturing, participating in seminars, special conferences or workshops as well as collaborating on curriculum planning, institutional and/or faculty development. Clinical medical research and related projects involving patient contact along with personal research are not allowed.
Eligible institutions may submit a project request through their local Ace agency.
Thank you for your willingness to consider the Ace Traditional Medicine Program. Please do not hesitate to contact me if additional information is required.
