Health Care and Social Services

Dear colleagues,

We are happy to inform you that the Faculty of Health Care and Social Services is organizing a three-day International Days on 28th to 30th of September 2008. We hope to see as many visiting lecturers and colleagues here as possible.

There are several goals for this three-day International Days. First of all it is to give all our Health Care and Social Services students an international experience through the visiting lecturers. But another, very important goal is to increase the possibilities for networking among colleagues and to serve a platform for increased cooperation.

The International Days is arranged by the Faculty of Health Care and Social Services at the VAMK University of Applied Sciences. The three-day International Meeting consists of presentations, round table discussions and workshops, and social program.

We cordially invite lecturers and staff members from our partner universities to participate in the International Days. We hope to have one hour presentations of health care and/or social services systems in your own country. The purpose of this part is to offer to our students a possibility to get an overview of their field of study in other countries. The aim is also to encourage them to do and exchange period abroad. That is why we ask you to prepare a country presentation. There will be stands where you can promote your country and institution.

During the three-day International Days we are proud to offer also an interesting social program. We will also arrange visits to the local actors at health care and social services.

Enclosed you will find the link to the registration form and details on hotels. Please, fill in the registration form by 15th of June 2008.

Please pass on this invitation to all your colleagues who might be interested.

We hope that you will accept our invitation and we look forward to meeting you in Vaasa in September 2008!

Yours faithfully,
