Agreement signed with Holy See Ambassadors

The initiative within the Heath and Diplomacy Program


A Memorandum of Collaboration has been signed between the Campus Bio-Medico University Hospital in the person of the General Director of the Hospital, Ing. Paolo Sormani, with the Diplomatic Corps accredited to the Holy See, represented by H.E. Ambassador Georgios Poulides – Dean Ambassador of the Diplomatic Corps to the Holy See – in order to guarantee benefits for health care.

The agreement, which is part of the Heath and Diplomacy Program coordinated by Prof. Massimo Maria Caneva at the University Hospital, arrives at a particularly delicate moment in public health not only in our country, but also internationally with the dramatic consequences of the current pandemic to which the Hospital has promptly responded with the creation of a Covid Center totally independent of the Hospital and active for more than a month now with intensive care beds and second level assistance.

Ambassador Poulides personally visited the Campus Bio-Medico University Hospital, expressing appreciation and emphasizing, among other things, that the structure today represents a place in Rome where professionalism and attention to the human person are combined with the competence of health care and the affection for patients who always need to overcome, with the help of health personnel, their suffering in the disease.

“It is certainly a question of engaging the Campus Bio-Medico University Hospital in activities of excellence at an international level, but not only! In fact, the intent of the Health and Diplomacy Program is to lay the foundations for a new dialogue between the scientific circles relating to preventive and assistance health with those of Diplomacy – underlines the Director General Ing. Sormani – to face new international challenges and to ensure true global health! “.

“You can see it more and more clearly – says Prof. Caneva Coordinator of the Health and Diplomacy Program – which requires a great and profound knowledge of the territorial realities, especially in situations of particular crisis, and at the same time promoting a transparent coordination strategy between the various Regions of the World. Universities and its polyclinics have a very important task: that of doing research and teaching in preparing the new generations of doctors and nurses for these global challenges that require great scientific competence with a vision ability and at the same time a global human approach stronger and more evident”.

In this context, the Campus Bio-Medico University of Rome is providing specific academic training at an international level thanks to a new Medicine & Surgery course. For its part, the Polyclinic opens its competence and specializations to patients from other countries with adequately trained medical and nursing, as well as administrative staff.
