Visits and Exchange

The Joint Institute fosters several types of bi-lateral visitor exchanges every year.  Such visits enhance the cooperative efforts between the University of Michigan Medical School and the Peking University Health Science Center; foster the academic and clinical interchange of faculty, postdoctoral fellows, and students; and promote the clinical, academic, and research information between the two Institutions. Primary types of visits and exchanges include:

Medical Education: Both Institutions send delegations to visit the other institution to learn about different educational systems and curriculum design. These visits may include staff and/or faculty members who are involved in short-term teaching, instruction, and/or consultation.

Student Exchange: Students (primarily medical students, residents, fellows, and graduate research students) of either institution may participate in degree-granting or non-degree granting programs of the JI partner institute.

Research Collaborations: The JI encourages basic, translational and clinical research collaborations in areas of mutual interest.  Short- or long-term visits and exchanges may be arranged for faculty and postdoctoral fellows to participate in new or existing research projects.

For information about the process and requirements for visiting China as part of a JI collaboration, see the travel portion of the JI Q & A.
