Collaborative Agreements

If you are a USF Morsani College of Medicine faculty member wishing to initiate a Collaborative Agreement between USF and another institution, please follow the instructions below.

1. Visit our Secure Downloads page (HSCNET account required), and download the following 3 documents

  • USF Health Review form
  • Gen Agreement for Collaboration
  • Student Exchange Agreement

2. Obtain the names, titles and contact information for the appropriate persons of authority at the partnering institution, as well as a complete name and address for the institution.

3. Insert institution name and appropriate authority names and titles in both the Review Form and the General Agreement.

4. Make two originals of the Collaborative Agreement (after all signatures are obtained, USF Medicine International will need one original and the partnering institution will need to keep an original). Note: If the partnership is in a country that speaks a language other than English, there will need to be two originals in English and two originals in that country’s language.

5. The USF Faculty member initiating the partnership should sign the Review Form in the “Submitted for review by” section and forward the Review Form with the two originals of the General Agreement to:

John Sinnott, MD

Associate Dean, USF Medicine International

c/o Tampa General Hospital Room G318

1 Tampa General Circle, Tampa, FL 33606

6. USF Medicine International will obtain remaining internal signatures on both the review form and the two originals of the agreement and will notify you when they are complete.

7. The two Collaborative Agreements will then be ready to forward or be taken to the partnering institution.

After signatures from the partnering institution have been obtained, one original of the Collaborative Agreement should be returned to USF Medicine International at the above address. USF Medicine International will forward the agreement to the International Affairs Center. Note: Please remember to make a photocopy of the agreement for your records.
