The primary goal of this collaboration is to create educational initiatives, advanced research endeavours, and international mobility prospects for Indian students, all while upholding stringent standards in healthcare workforce enhancement.

The Apollo Hospitals Group has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the University of Leicester to foster international collaboration and promote education and research initiatives in healthcare management, healthcare, and data science.

This partnership aims to develop education programs, cutting-edge research projects, and global mobility opportunities for Indian students while maintaining a high standard in healthcare workforce development.

Preetha Reddy, the vice chairperson of the Apollo Hospitals Group, said, "We are delighted to have this agreement with the University of Leicester (UoL) in place to explore the creation of education programmes, cutting edge research and global mobility opportunities for Indian students to excel in their area of interest. Building a healthcare workforce to global standards has been the cornerstone of Apollo's education and skilling initiatives. Working with the University of Leicester builds on the legacy of collaboration between India and the UK and will lead to finding newer solutions to tackle global healthcare challenges while addressing the shortage of skilled workforce in India and the UK."

The University of Leicester has earned recognition as the leading institution in the UK for respiratory, cardiovascular, and diabetes research. In the Research Excellence Framework 2021 analysis by the Times Higher Education, it was ranked second in clinical medicine research, only surpassed by Cambridge and on par with UCL.

The university's Biomedical Research Centre, one of the 20 such institutions in the UK, received substantial funding of £26 million from the National Institute for Health and Care Research.

This Biomedical Research Centre is dedicated to advancing clinical research in areas such as cardiovascular disease, respiratory and infectious diseases, personalised cancer prevention and treatment, data innovations in multiple long-term health conditions, lifestyle and physical activity, and environmental health.

The University of Leicester also leads a flagship project, overseen by Professor Kamlesh Kunti, which collaborates with the UK, Indian, and Nepalese governments. This project aims to improve health outcomes for individuals with multimorbidity, create a self-sustaining international centre for managing multiple long-term conditions, and disseminate its findings globally.

This partnership between the Apollo Hospitals Group and the University of Leicester underlines the commitment of both institutions to the pursuit of excellence in healthcare and the development of innovative solutions to healthcare challenges. The collaboration also leverages the University of Leicester's strong track record in medical research and Apollo's reputation for healthcare leadership, promising a bright future for healthcare advancements.
