Strengthening of medical, paramedical and nursing professionals through the best medical education is one of the most important ways to accomplish the same.

As an effort in the same direction, two students from Bern University of Applied Sciences Switzerland, visited Parul University, Vadodara for a practical based exchange program for 6 weeks. The program is among the most recent global initiatives taken by the University, which are centred on exposing the Indian higher education to the best international relations. This is based on the understanding that, the growth and development of healthcare across all the marginal cities of India requires the contribution of all the social institutions as well as sound foreign relations.
