Due to the rapid pace of scientific progress in medicine, there is a global movement to improve medical education. This unique book describes the Wuhan University Medical School reform initiative, a successful example of medical education reform in China that may offer inspiration, motivation, and new ideas to medical school leaders both in China and abroad.
Beginning in 2008, Wuhan University and the University of Chicago Pritzker School of Medicine collaborated to build a state-of-the-art, world-class curriculum and pedagogy with high levels of student and faculty satisfaction and improved student performance. The first chapter of this book outlines reform innovations, before the rest of the text moves on to detail the collaboration process, the entire reform curriculum, and the novel evaluation research methods. As such, it offers practical recommendations to medical school faculty and medical education researchers both in China and abroad, as well as to international partners working in reform collaborations.
