workshop proposal.


Dr. Utsumi

I'm literally about to get on a plane to Europe for three weeks so below is
the best I can do right now. Hope this helps. I'm copying Herman Tollentino
to ensure that he is aware of this proposal and my potential part in it. He
will likely have additional information he could add about the joint
relationship we are developing between our institutions.

Dr. Fuller has been working with Dr. Herman Tollentino and his colleagues as
the University of the Philippines in Manila to develop a graduate student and
faculty exchange program with her institution, the University of Washington,
Seattle in the area of Biomedical and Health Informatics. Dr. Herman
Tollentino was a fellow in biomedical informatics at the UW and as a result of
the work he did while at UW and our mutual interest in developing further
relationships between our institutions, in November, 1999. Dr. Fuller was
invited to visit the University of the Philippines in Manila to plan for this
exchange program. While there she did two lectures and met with a number of
faculty and librarians to discuss the further development of educational
programs and potential telemedicine activities. Information regarding the UW
graduation program in Biomedical and Health Informatics can be found at:

Participation in the workshop will assist in the further development of the
graduate student and faculty exchange program including discussion of
potential online educational offerings that might be developed to support this program.
