The Future of Global Medical Education

3:00–5:00 pm
University of Chicago Center in Hong Kong
Level 6, Cyberport Two, 100 Cyberport Road, Hong Kong


Global medical education is undergoing a profound transition. Graduates are trained with defined competencies in their major specialties. Physician autonomy and independence are of growing importance to hospitals and residency training programs worldwide.  All medical schools are strived to develop students of all levels to become life-long learners who can negotiate and assimilate the ever-increasing volume of knowledge and skills over time that a modern physician is required to master. 

The University of Chicago is a leader in graduate and undergraduate medical education in the United States, and a major contributor to the young science of global medical education in such countries of the world as China, Haiti, Bangladesh, Nigeria, and Chile.

In this visit, the team will be meeting medical doctors and practitioners in Hong Kong to discuss innovations in graduate medical education in China and the United States.

This is a prime opportunity for our alumni and friends to meet the faculty team prior to their conference.

Come and hear about the future of global medical education as they unfold the past and present with the university’s 125 years of history.
