    Masters of Clinical Medicine study in China

    Advertisements



    I'm looking for a Masters in Clinical Medicine taught in English (this is important since I don't speak enough Mandarin). I used ***** to find medical schools with such a program and it came back with 10 that offer such a program. They are:
    - Shandong University- Southeast University- Central South University- HeBei Medical University- JiangSu University- JiLin University- NanJing Medical University- West China University of Medical Science- Xi'An JiaoTong University (but with specialty area e.g. Emergency, Internal Medicine etc - ZhengZhou University
    Is there anyone here that has any first hand information about the calibre of the program? Can someone advise me about how good or otherwise of the campuses etc. I note that Xi'an JiaoTong Uni require HSK for the program, which is meant to be in English, why would that be? I guess it because the clinical component will be in local hospitals where Mandarin is used. However my Chinese is not good enough for that (never sat HSK).

    So I want a program that is taught in English and perhaps includes some modules for Mandarin.
    Any insight at all.

    Hi Globalmedic,
    I just graduated from suzhou university and im also planning in doing my masters in china,still wondering which hospital to apply to!
    I've noticed a few things abt how they hold their masters degree in suzhou,that is its a 3 years course,6 months in class and 2 1/2 year in hospital.
    And in suzhou uni,the 1st semester,they offer mandarin classes,along with epidemio and statistics,and i can't remember wat else,but maybe pathophysiology.
    Now,i myself feel that my mandarin is still pretty bad after 5 years in china,esp wen i was in interning in one of the hospital.Sometimes i get frustrated with how the doctors can't explain me in english,and only some departments have fluent english doctors(mostly internal dept).

    So i'll give u a few tips if u want to apply for masters.

    I think its good to meet up with the professor who's gonna be ur mentor,get a feel of wat kind of person he is,wether he cares about u,wether he's willing to teach u or not.From my own experience,im planning to apply neurosurgery,and the professor that i want to be under is a crazy surgeon,he would curse everyone in the OR if their team made a mistake.But he's the only untouchable professor in the hospital,meaning he can't be sacked from the hospital,and from wat i heard,he's dat powerful,one of the best in china for glioma open surgery.
    But when i asked him if i could learn under him,he said he'll pass me to another doctor which is also his student,meaning he's not even gonna care about me,and when i asked the doctor who will take care of me about doing my masters under the professor,he looked shocked and surprised,bcos he said,the proff is a killer!

    So i guess it's really really important to know who will be incharge of u,if u can get a Private investigator,check his/her background,see wat he likes to do,wether he has a life outside hospital,or does he like to teach(this is to me the most important point of all)...

    Other than this,u raised a good point about how u want to apply to an english medium masters course,and let me tell u this,there is no such thing in china,esp if u want to apply masters.this is bcos u'll be spending most of ur time in the hospital,and all of the patients are chinese,don't even bother speakin english to them.And during ward rounds,don't expect the doctors discuss abt the patients' health in english either.When i was in certain depts like cardio and neprhology,there were a few doctors who dedicate their time to teaching,so they wud stop one by one to tell me abt their disease in english,but after that,im on my own.So once again knowing about ur doctor is important and learning medical chinese(different from normal mandarin)is really important.

    other than this,let me see,its good to have frens who knows abt the hospital u want to apply too.Such as me,im in suzhou uni and they're offering masters degree so if u need any help abt suzhou uni masters programme,let me know k!

    hope this helps!

    Such a good point! This med education is very much related with the personalities, motivations etc etc of the people/teachers around you.. because of this reason as well, well reputed good schools are preferable.. even in them there may be weak experiences..
