Haukeland University Hospital (HUH) is collaborating with Christian Medical College & Hospital (CMCH) in India. This is an educational and research institute with primary, secondary and tertiary hospitals.


​ It is located in Vellore, Tamil Nadu and is one of India’s most prominent and advanced medical colleges. CMCH has approximately 2.600 beds and more than 8.000 staff members.

We have been in collaboration with CMCH since 2004, first of all in training of medical specialist candidates from our collaborating partner hospitals in Africa. Since 2007, the National center for tropical infectious diseases at Department of medicine, HUS has arranged a yearly course in tropical medicine in collaboration with CMCH for Norwegian and Indian doctors. This course is useful for doctors under specialization in infectious diseases and microbiology, specialists in infectious diseases and microbiology and other physicians with an interest in tropical infectious diseases.
