The University of Chicago Center in Beijing provides a physical presence to enhance and strengthen the University’s traditionally strong ties to Chinese thought and culture. Building upon more than a century of collaboration between scholars from Chicago and China, the Center in Beijing enables the University to expand existing activities and form new alliances and partnerships with universities, businesses, medical centers, policy groups, government agencies, and cultural organizations in China.

From April 9th to the 13th, three third-year internal medicine residents and one fourth-year surgical direction student from the University of Chicago Medicine completed a week-long residency exchange at the Peking Union Medical College Hospital (PUMCH). As the third group of exchange residents in a row that started in 2015, UCM has sent around 20 residents and senior medical students to PUMCH for clinical observership in internal medicine, family medicine, and general surgery.
