On September 10th, a Gala Dinner was held at the Hotel Phoenicia on the occasion of the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) between The George Washington University Hospital in Washington, D.C., and our institution, Trad Hospital and Medical Center in Beirut.

The Memorandum of Understanding signed on this occasion will serve as the roadmap for a wide range of collaborative efforts. These include:
- The exchange of visiting faculty for teaching and research
- Access for qualified medical students planning to pursue their international clinical electives
- Mutual cooperation in the field of breast diseases, ear-nose-throat (cochlear implantation), obstetrics and gynecology, orthopedics (navigational systems) through planning and development of joint conferences and seminars of mutual interest, training programs, program planning, and the development of technology of the above clinical areas
- The promotion and exchange of scholarly publications and other materials
- The development of substantive educational and research programs and conferences, seminars on topics of mutual interest and to encourage and strengthen communication and cooperation between members of both institutions

The MOU was signed by Dr. Stanley Knoll, MD, FACS, "Clinical Professor of Surgery, Department of Surgery and Medical Director, International Medicine Programs" and Ms. Huda M. Ayas, "Executive Director, International Medicine Programs, Adjunct Professor, School of Public Health and Health Service", representing Dr. John F. Williams, MD, EdD, "Provost and Vice-President for Health Affairs" at the University of George Washington. Dr. Sami Trad, Chairman General Manager, and Dr. Karim Trad, Medical Director, signed on behalf of Trad Hospital.
"This is this kind of mutual collaboration that can only enhance the research, education and clinical care goals of our respective institutions," said Dr. John F. Williams, provost and vice president for Health Affairs at GW, in a message prepared for the signing ceremony. "An exchange like this one will ensure that the entire country of Lebanon benefits from the value of the partnership."

Dr. Williams singled out the efforts of Trad Hospital Medical Director Dr. Karim Trad in making the collaboration possible. After completing a residency in general surgery at GW in the 1980's, Dr. Trad returned to GW as an assistant professor of surgery and director of endoscopic surgery in 1992. He moved to Lebanon three years later to become medical director at Trad Hospital; he remains a Clinical Assistant Professor of Surgery at GW.

Dr. Sami Trad, Chairman and General Manager of Trad Hospital and Medical Center, reminded in his speech at the signing ceremony that Trad Hospital was founded in 1940 as a one floor maternity hospital . It was later expanded to cover a wide range of specialties in a multistoried building complex which still features carefully preserved traditional architecture . Today the Hospital stretches over 9000 M2 housing 70 beds and a Medical Center well equipped with a cutting edge modern medical environment.

"This agreement is a major stepping stone in Trad Hospital's ongoing pursuit to deliver high quality medical care" said Dr. Karim Trad in his speech. "We feel particularly proud and fortunate, especially that GW, through its International Medicine Programs, has been extremely successful in establishing similar collaborative efforts worldwide".

The dinner grouped around the representatives of George Washington University and Trad Hospital, prominent members from Beiruts' Medical and Academic Communities and was honored by the presence of His Excellency Mr. Jeffrey Feltman, Ambassador of the United States, who wished to be a witness of the signature. Mr. Feltman delivered on this occasion, a big speech stressing the importance of this partnership, which beyond its pure medical benefit to Trad Hospital and the whole country, will no doubt reinforce the long standing tradition of friendship and collaboration between the USA and the Lebanese people.
