Training Opportunities in China
UMass Medical School, through its educational, research and service initiatives, is committed to having a global impact. As a result of this increasingly global outlook, UMMS is actively fostering the development of strategic international academic partnerships.
A major focus of this global engagement has been directed towards China, where UMMS is establishing mutually beneficial relationships with a number of leading Chinese universities. Memorandum of Understanding have been signed with Tongji University School of Medicine in Shanghai, West China School of Medicine, Sichuan University in Chengdu, Sichuan Province, Peking Union Medical College and Peking University Health Science Center in Beijing. These emerging partnerships provide wonderful opportunities for UMMS students to enhance their educational offerings and gain meaningful international experiences. More detailed introduction of each school/hospital can be found under “Our Chinese Partners” of this website (http://www.umassmed.edu/China/partners.aspx) and the links therein.
The China Program Office at the Medical School is pleased to announce two program opportunities available to UMMS medical students in China: Summer Student Program and Clinical Rotation Program. Should you be interested in pursuing one of these exciting opportunities, please contact our office by phone (Hui Zou, 508.856.1554) or by email (China@umassmed.edu).
