There were many participants at The President and Dean’s forum at Peking University Health Science Center. Different universities participated from around the world including Yale, Pittsburgh, Michigan, Nebraska, and UCLA.
Collaboration of medical education in China was one of the first topics by a representative from the Australian University. She talked about wisdom according to the ancient philosopher, Confucius, and how much is to be learned from the Chinese both in the ancient world and in the modern era. Their university has already established a program of exchange students and looking for further collaboration in many areas.
The last photo is a slide of a key note speaker from UCLA integrating the Chinese symbol in his presentation I found it unusual and intresting. Saturday I am going to visit the Third Teaching Hospital where I did a part of my clinical training and see the changes that have taken place since I was there 5 years ago.
