Please let us know if you (or someone you know) was a prior participant in the BU-Armenia student exchange program. Share your feedback and help shape the program for future generations.

  • The US based team that will install the HBO machines at the Mikayelyan (Yerevan) and the Republican (Stepanakert) hospitals has been mobilized. The AAMA is actively preparing for the final phase of this project. Earlier today, we met with the American trip traveling to Armenia, as well as representatives from Artsakh, the Mikayelyan hospital (Yerevan), the Armenian contractor and others to finalize all the details. The two American experts (physician and technician) will be joined by an Armenian physician from California who will help translate the English documents to Armenian and act as an expert interpreter during the set-up process. We are expecting both machines to be operational by end of this year.
