Yale Global Health Leadership Initiative (GHLI) is excited to announce their continued partnership with Tsinghua University.

A delegation from Tsinghua University, including professor, Dr. Xue Lei, the Deputy Dean of the Institute for Hospital Management, and Ms. Liu Yanxin, the Institute’s associate Director, visited GHLI and the Yale School of Public Health (YSPH) from January 28 –29.

During the visit, YSPH Dean Sten Vermund and Tsinghua Deputy Dean Xue signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) launching a dual-degree program that includes a Master of Arts in Public Policy focused on healthcare management from Tsinghua University and a Master of Public Health (MPH) from YSPH.  The 3-year program will include the first year at Tsinghua University in Beijing, the second year at YSPH in New Haven and the final year back at Tsinghua University. Dr. Mayur Desai, associate professor of epidemiology, director of the Advanced Professional MPH Program and faculty at GHLI, will oversee the dual-degree program on behalf of YSPH.  The program will begin in August 2020 with dual-degree students arriving at Yale in July 2021.
