The University of Minnesota College of Veterinary Medicine and Chaing Mai University in Thailand have launched a two-year, veterinary education twinning project under the World Organization for Animal Health (OIE) Veterinary Twinning Project. Twinning is an approach that enables peer-to-peer exchange of knowledge, ideas and experience between two universities. It is part of a wider OIE initiative to improve the capacity of veterinary services in developing countries.
