On 29 and 30 October, the Faculty hosted visitors from the Advanced Medical and Dental Institute at Universiti Sains Malaysia.

Professor Abd Aziz Tajuddin (Director), Dr. Ahmad Munir Che Muhamed (Head of Healthy Lifestyle Cluster) and Dr Kavitha Menon (Senior Lecturer, Healthy Lifestyle Cluster), met with Professor Kathryn Refshauge, Dean of the Faculty of Health Sciences, Professor Patrick Patrick Brennan, and academic staff from the Discipline of Exercise and Sports Science. Discussions included student exchange, areas of research interest and potential funding opportunities.

The highlight of the visit was the signing of the Cotutelle Agreement between the two institutions in which discussions commenced in 2010 at a visit to Universiti Sains Malaysia by Faculty of Health Sciences' academic staff. The first student under this agreement will commence at the Faculty of Health Sciences in early 2013.
