Written by Professor Richard Schuster, co-director of the MPH Global Health Leadership and Administration at The University of Haifa International School.
Professors Richard and Barbara Schuster, receiving their Fellowship to the Royal College of Physicians of Edinburgh by Professor Derek Bell, President of the RCP (Edin).
Both Barbara and I are professors in the School of Public Health at the University of Haifa. Becoming a Fellow of the Royal College of Physicians of Edinburgh is an honor bestowed on a very selected group of physicians from around the world who have demonstrated career accomplishments deserving of recognition by the RCP (Edin).
The RCP (Edin) was founded in 1681. The RCPE is an independent, standard-setting body and professional membership organization, whose aim is to improve and maintain the quality of patient care. The RCPE helps to develop standards of medical care and training and to influence health policy. Fellows and Members come from 91 different countries.
We were truly honored to be recognized as Fellows by the Royal College of Physicians of Edinburgh. This well-established and prestigious organization provides us at the University of Haifa with new recognition and also helps us to make new connections throughout the world for advancing our goals in promoting Global Health. We live in a global world and enhancing connections between Haifa and the Great Britain are mutually valuable to us here in Haifa and to our colleagues in Great Britain.
