On the afternoon of October 17, Vice President Chen Xiang held the first meeting with the delegation led by Dr. Lincoln Chen, President of China Medical Board (CMB), and Dr. Li Wenkai, Director of the Beijing Office of CMB for negotiating cooperation.
The two sides reviewed their cooperation dating from 1914, especially the productive ones in the fields of medical education, health policy and system (HPS), talent training, nursing, etc. since 2016, which have boosted CSU discipline development like medical science and its related specialities. Based on CSU’s advantages in the areas of medical big data, development of telemedicine and distance training, ability of cultivating specialists, and easy share and exchange of medical information, Vice President Chen Xiang expressed CSU’s willingness to cooperate with CMB, and said that CSU could provide CMB with assistance and support for its establishment of medical network in rural areas of western China. President Lincoln Chen highly appreciated it, expressed his interest in cooperation, gave a promise of support, and hoped that the two sides could make further discussions on details of cooperation then.
The attendees still hoped that CMB could extend the currently established China League of Elite Teaching Schools for Training Resident Doctors to a China University League similar to American Ivy League, where universities, besides cooperating in training resident doctors, could also exchange students and young doctors. Professor Tian Yongquan, former Vice President of CSU, Professor Cao Ya, former President of Provincial Federation of Returned Overseas Chinese, and Bai Yi, Director of International Exchange and Cooperation Office attended the meeting as well.
