Four collegiate administrators from TEB Education (TEB Fundacja), a consortium of 10 universities and 45 community colleges in Poland, visited the Medical Education Campus to tour the facility and learn about healthcare academic programs.
The visiting guests spoke with MEC Provost Dr. Nicole Reaves, MEC Simulation Lab Manager Don Johnson and Chief Operation Officer Marion Devoe about their intent to develop a medical campus in their country. The administrators felt inspired to model their efforts based on what they learned about MEC’s reputation for using state-of-the-art medical equipment as part of classroom instruction.
TEB Education is located in 45 cities throughout Poland and offers courses in post-secondary, medical and technical institutions. The organization comprehensively prepares students for the workforce, offering basic and specialized vocational courses and training. TEB Education’s teaching staff are comprised of academic teachers from universities and colleges and experienced experts from financial institutions, offices, banks, SPA salons, beauty salons, dental offices, healthcare facilities, pharmacies, IT companies and other private companies throughout Poland.
In additional to touring the MEC, the administrators visited tourism sites and businesses throughout DC, including The World Bank, Dupont Circle Solutions, Lockheed Martin, Monumental Sports & Entertainment, and Association Analytics (A2). Their visit was arranged by Global Ties U.S., a nonprofit partner of the U.S. Department of State that coordinates international exchange programs and brings current and future leaders from around the world to communities throughout the United States.
