With approval of the Ministry of Education of China, SUMC launched the international program in Clinical Medicine / MBBS in 2010, which has been registered with the International Medical Education Directory (IMED) of the Foundation for Advancement of International Medical Education and Research (FAIMER). The program is for international students who have a general interest in China and have the ambition to become an outstanding international clinician capable of practicing medicine in different countries around the world. SUMC is committed to providing international students with quality medical education experiences that enable them to become competent physicians with solid medical knowledge, adequate clinical skills and professionalism. In 2013, SUMC passed the Ministry of Education’s national inspection of foreign student programs in medical schools, and we were encouraged to increase enrollment as our five year program was well recognized.

 The program is five years in duration and leads to a bachelor degree. Applicants who have successfully completed some basic courses such as Higher Mathematics, Physics and Chemistry, etc. are eligible to apply for direct entry into second year subject to approval by the Teaching Department. 

The curriculum includes basic courses in the first year, system-based basic & clinical courses, skill training courses and elective courses in the second and third years, clinical courses in the fourth year, clinical internship and elective courses in the fifth year. Courses are taught in English by qualified basic science and clinical faculties, with established international textbooks and publications are as references for the students. The program effectively integrates basic medical science with advanced clinical training.

SUMC adopts a student-centered educational model based on the concept of life-long learning and focused on skills development and attitude cultivation. Through interactive projects, joint case studies, group debates, book discussions and journal clubs, and effective self-study, students at SUMC quickly develop their professional competencies and skills. SUMC students are encouraged to experience clinical practice throughout the entire program. Actual clinical exposure is maximized through elective courses, bedside instruction sessions, health services charity projects, clinical rotations and intensive clinical internships in SUMC-affiliated hospitals. The Simulated Medical Center at SUMC, a state-of-the-art clinical simulation and learning center designed as an actual modern hospital, also efficiently facilitates the acquisition of the professional skills and competencies required in clinical practice through the use of sophisticated simulation models, multimedia learning systems and professional standardized patients.
