International Relations

Ever since the establishment of the Faculty of Medical Technology, Mahidol University fifty years ago, the Faculty has strong collaborations with partnerships worldwide to share professional knowledge and experiences which has been driven by staff and student exchange programs. Under such collaborative exchanges through the establishment of the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU), academic staffs from both institutes may provide teaching and perform research at the partner institutes. Likewise, students from both institutes have the opportunity to take courses and work for their thesis to fulfill part of their degree requirements at the partner institutes. For more than twenty years of collaboration with the Department of Pure and Applied Biochemistry, Lund University, Sweden, students have the opportunity to earn dual PhD degrees from both Mahidol University and Lund University. This program is unique in that it allows the blend of perspectives from Asia and Europe to tackle perplexing research questions in life science.




The Faculty of Medical Technology, Mahidol University has maintained active collaboration with the following prestigious institutes:
  • Department of Pure and Applied Biochemistry, Lund University, Sweden
  • Institute of Biochemistry, Muenster University, Germany
  • Graduate Center of Toxicology, University of Kentucky, USA
  • Southern Illinois University School of Medicine, Simmons Cooper Cancer Institute, USA
  • National Cancer Institute, National Institue of Health (NIH), Neuro-Oncology Branch, USA
  • Department of Analytical Biochemistry, Institute of Biochemistry and Biology, University of Potsdam, Golm, Potsdam, Germany
  • Department of Biological and Environmental Engineering, Cornell University, Ithaca, New York, USA
  • Biosensor Research Group, Institute of Biotechnology, University of Cambridge, United Kingdom
  • Department of Immunology, Wenner-Gren Institute, Stockholm University, Sweden
  • Cells-Free Science and Technology Research Center, Ehime University, Japan
  • Division of Medical Imaging Physics, The Russell H. Morgan Department of Radiology and Radiological Science, John Hopkins Medical Institutions, John Hopkins University, USA
  • Brain Tumor Center and Department of Neurosurgery and Neuro-Oncology, MD Anderson Research Center, University of Texas at Houston, USA
  • Department of Radiation Oncology, Free Radical and Radiation Biology Program, University of Iowa, Iowa City, USA
  • Department of Entomology, Pennsylvania State University, USA
  • The Center for Global Health and Infectious Disease, University of Notredame, USA
  • Queenland University of Technology, Austraria 

    Under such collaborations, PhD candidates have the opportunity to spend at least one year abroad at partnering institutes. More than fifty PhD scholars have graduated from the program to serve vital roles in academia and industries both domestically and overseas.


    Revolutionizing the Undergraduate Curriculum

    To produce well-rounded medical technologists, curriculum of the Bachelor degree program has been revolutionized by utilizing competency-based learning to improve the quality and standard of education. The competency-based education (CBE) is a learning and teaching method that encourages active student involvement and promotes “learning to learn” for lifelong learning. Such endeavors have been made possible through collaboration with the Department of Industrial Technology and Education, Utah State University, U.S.A. for the exchange of tools and information process under the expertise supervision of Fulbright Scholar Prof. Dr. Edward M. Reeve.


    International Laboratory Standardization

    To develop international Laboratory standardization and quality improvement, the Faculty has linked the EQA program with external quality assessment schemes from various global regions such as Institute of Standardization and Documentation in the Medical Laboratory (Federal Republic of Germany), United Kingdom National External Quality Assessment Scheme in Biochemistry (United Kingdom of Great Britain and North Ireland) and Blood Lead for Proficiency Testing, Center for Disease Control, Wisconsin State Hygiene Laboratory, USA. EQA programs have also joined to The Asian Network of Clinical Laboratory Standardization and Harmonization in Clinical Chemistry, Hematology and Coagulation, which compose of more than 60 laboratories from 11 countries in Asia.



    Moreover, the Faculty has also provided supports and strengthens area of medical laboratory sciences and radiological technology to the neighboring countries in the Asian region such as Laos, Cambodia, Korea, and Bhutan. Training courses have been provided by the financial support of the World Health Organization (WHO) and other supportive agencies. The training courses include Laboratory instruments, Quality management in clinical laboratory, Diagnostic parasitology, Cytology, Clinical bacteriology, Clinical microscopy, Clinical chemistry, Molecular biological technique, Immunodiagnosis and Medical Imaging.
