Ridgewater College, Hong Kong medical programs develop partnership


Ridgewater College has entered into a formal agreement to provide emergency medical training for the Hong Kong Society of Professional Medical Care.

The college and representatives of the society signed the papers to seal the deal this week, while the Hong Kong officials were visiting the Willmar area. The partnership will bring a national certification system for ambulance personnel in Hong Kong and give Ridgewater's training programs an international reach.
