Medical Education and Exchange Programs

Residency Training

Currently in the tenth year and partnering with Xiangya School of Medicine and Yale School of Medicine, the Hospital and Medical Program has focused on the development of a model clinical training program for medical school graduates at each of the three Xiangya-affiliated hospitals. The current program model at Xiangya has influenced national policies on residency training, as Xiangya continue to be a leader nationally. .

Medical Student and Resident Exchange

Since 2007, Yale-China has facilitated medical student exchanges from Yale School of Medicine and Xiangya School of Medicine in China to the other country for short-term clinical rotations, a program administered by the Yale School of Medicine Office of International Medical Student Education (OIMSE). Through hands-on clinical experiences in another country, studentsare able to reflect on their own medical training and see how medicine is practiced in a different medical system and cultural setting. Thanks to this short but intense immersion, students are able to increase their own awareness about what it means to practice culturally relevant medicine. More >

Medical Education

Since 2010, several delegations from the Xiangya School of Medicine have visited the Yale School of Medicine to learn about Yale’s medical education system. With Yale and Xiangya both undergoing curricular reform, these exchanges offer unique opportunities for medical educators and leaders alike to learn from the other system and explore potential collaborations.
