The Department of Occupational Therapy at the Faculty of Allied Medical Sciences at the Arab American University, in cooperation with a specialist from the Department of Physical Therapy at Shenandoah University, delivered a lecture entitled "Ethics and Values as One of the Pillars of Work within a Multidisciplinary Team", targeting students of occupational therapy, prosthetics, speech and hearing, and bridging nursing.
Mohamed Salahat, a lecturer in the Department of Occupational Therapy at the Arab American University, and Dr. Mitchell Wiley from the Department of Physical Therapy at Shenandoah University delivered a lecture. This lecture comes within the ongoing partnership project between the two universities, within the COIL program, which aims to exchange experiences between academics and students from both universities.
Lecturer Salahat explained that this cooperation contributed well to the achievement of the desired educational results. In the lecture, examples from different cultures were presented, which helped students to understand in-depth the concepts of professional ethics and values from various perspectives.
In his turn, the Vice President for Medical Faculties Affairs at the Arab American University indicated that this successful cooperation between AAUP and Shenandoah University has contributed to opening the way for launching other future projects. Such projects aim to enhance this exchange and further advancing the allied medical professions at our university as well as the quality of educational outcomes for our students and the level of our university locally and internationally.
