This year in Ternopil State Medical University a Peace Corps volunteer Joanne Patti Munisteri will help the university teachers and students to get more profound knowledge of English. On August 13 the representative of this non-governmental organization discussed the terms of cooperation with the rector of the university Professor Mykhailo Korda.

The Head of Ternopil Medical University said that Joanne Patti Munisteri is a medical worker. So she can effectively help in advanced medical terminology learning.

“We are happy to welcome you to our university. It’s our pleasure that the Peace Corps has responded to our request to send one of his best volunteers to Ternopil to teach English medical terms. This experience of cooperation is new for us. But hopefully it will be successful and effective. We will exert every effort to make your stay here comfortable,” Mykhailo Korda emphasized.

Let us recall that the Peace Corps is non-political, non-religious organization, which is found by the US President John F. Kennedy in 1961 for professional exchange and strengthening of peace and friendship between people of different nationalities and cultures. In Ukraine Peace Corps have been functioning since 1992 by virtue of the bilateral arrangement between the Presidents of the United States and Ukraine of founding of Peace Corps programs in Ukraine.
