Yale: Training Programs Draw Dozens of Chinese Health Officials, Practitioners

Two new training programs led by the Yale School of Public Health brought Chinese hospital officials, clinicians and research scientists from 18 children’s hospitals to campus this month to learn more about the field of public health, hospital medicine and healthcare management.

The three-week Yale-China Children’s Hospital Training Program — the Executive Leadership Workshop and the Clinical Research Training Workshop — wrapped up at the Yale School of Public Health on June 13.

With a growing demand for accessible and affordable health care, China has been pursuing major health reforms involving health care financing, drug policies and public hospitals. Dr. Yawei Zhang, YSPH associate professor and section chief and associate professor in the Department of Surgery at the Yale School of Medicine led the training. The Futang Research Center of Pediatric Development in China sponsored the training.

The Clinical Research Training Workshop (June 4-13) offered lectures on study designs of epidemiology and clinical trials, applied statistical analysis, exposure assessment, causal inference and big data application in clinical research. This workshop cultivated in-depth understanding of the state-of-the-science research methodologies, analytical approaches, and conceptual frameworks for conducting rigorous clinical research to advance and sustain better treatment outcomes among clinicians and research scientists.
