UWA’s Global Medical Program has been named as a finalist in the 2018 WA Industry and Export Awards. The awards program provides support and encouragement the state’s most innovative and forward-thinking organisations.
The Program consists of two innovative schemes that enable medical students from China to gain an international medical education through study at UWA. Through its "Winter School" program in August, medical students come to the Faculty of Health and Medical Science for short-term study in biomedical research and clinical placement. The subsequent establishment of a joint degree program with Zhejiang University (ZJU), one of the top three universities in China, enables students from the Winter School program to enrol in a formal undergraduate degree in Biomedical Science at UWA. This Global Medical Program is the first of its kind in Australia and will be able to generate internationally experienced English-speaking Chinese medical doctors who can provide high quality medical services to expatriates and local Chinese in China.
Congratulations and good luck for the awards ceremony in December!
