The University of Chicago and Wuhan University first partnered on an HIV care initiative training over 10,000 health workers from 2003 to 2008 and reduced HIV mortality from 49% to 8%.  The significant impact of this collaboration led to a broader effort to reform medical education at Wuhan based on the medical curricula of the Pritzker School of Medicine beginning in 2008.  In 2014, the reform curriculum was expanded to all incoming medical students at Wuhan and the following year, the medical school was awarded 8 years accreditation, the highest possible in China. Collaboration also expanded to graduate medical education since China launched a national strategy of standardized residency training in 2013 in partnership with Chinese National Health Commission, the Peking Union Medical College Hospital, the UChicago Beijing Center, and the Chinese Medical Doctors Association. Join us to explore practical lessons learned from the reform efforts and their profound impact on quality improvement of medical education in China.

2003年到2008年,芝加哥大学与武汉大学共同开展湖北省医务人员艾滋病教育培训项目,五年时间累计培训一万余名医务人员,将艾滋病毒的死亡率从49%降低到8%。在该项目的重大影响下,两校根据芝加哥大学普利茨克医学院的课程,自2008年起对武汉大学医学院教育进行改革。2014年,该课程体系在所有学制中全面推行;次年,武大医学院获准开设八年制临床医学专业。2013年,国家卫生健康委员会、北京协和医院、芝加哥大学北京中心和中国医师协会联合推出国家住院医师规范化培训制度,两校合作进一步拓展到研究生医学教育领域。我们诚邀您参与本次对话活动,了解这项改革所积累的实践经验,及其对提高中国医学教育质量的深远影响。
