International exchanges

PUMCH says it's committed to delivering comprehensive state-of-the-art clinical care, innovative scientific research and rigorous medical education.

Premier Li Keqiang inspected the hospital a few days before its centenary celebration, saying that it is important to step up international exchanges and cooperation to keep exploring new techniques in clinical diagnoses, treatments and pharmaceuticals.

The hospital vows to continue to promote and develop international cooperation with medical institutions around the world.

PUMCH's international cooperation office director He Jing says the hospital has been encouraging international communication and training to build a two-way talent channel.

"We've been actively introducing international talent into China and sending our staff overseas for communications and training," she says.

"Many programs have been moved online due to COVID. But we've never suspended our connections with the world."

The hospital has sponsored over 460 talented young Chinese professionals to study abroad since 2009, He says.

A program was set up in 2019 to send department directors overseas to learn from the advanced management experience in leading universities and hospitals, such as Harvard University, the University of Chicago and Mayo Clinic.

The hospital has expanded its partnerships with more international institutions, including Cleveland Clinic, Johns Hopkins, Beth Israel Lahey Health, Circle Health and the University of Tokyo Hospital.

"We also export our expertise to help underdeveloped countries, such as those in Africa," He says.

"Our doctors travel to these places to perform operations and train local doctors."

Zhang, the hospital's president, says, "Since PUMCH's founding, it has been an internationalized place where people feel we can realize dreams on this big stage, as long as we're brave enough to dream."
