China: Hunimed and Wuhan University sign an agreement

The agreement focuses on training programs for residents and medical specialists.

Promoting scientific exchange between Italian and Chinese doctors, through the organization of thematic workshops with colleagues from the two countries is behind the “China-Italy Medical culture week” organized by the Wuhan Renmin Hospital of Wuhan University.
Together with teachers and professionals from Wuhan Renmin Hospital and Wuhan University, a delegation from Humanitas University participated in the event. The Rector, Marco Montorsi was present as well as teaching staff and doctors from the Humanitas Hospitals of Rozzano (dr. Maria Grazia Bordoni, dr. Pasquale De Nittis, dr. Giovanni Battista Lasio dr., Federico Pessina) and Gradenigo (dr. Giorgio Carbone, dr. Alessandro Comandone, dr. Andrea Purro).

 

What does the agreement consist of?

“On this occasion – explains the Rector, Prof. Marco Montorsi – we signed a Memorandum of Understanding focused on the exchange of knowledge and clinical practices between Humanitas University and Wuhan University. It is an agreement that follows an active observership program in place with Wuhan University since 2015. We have already hosted more than 30 of their doctors in Rozzano and the programme is now being extended to Wuhan University’s residents. Moreover, for specialist doctors it introduces the one-to-one training method for periods up to one year. What’s more, thanks to the new agreement, the doctors of Wuhan Remnin Hospital are also ready to welcome our students.

The importance of the agreement with China also lies in its enormous numbers: Wuhan is a city with 12 million inhabitants, the capital of a province that serves 120 million people. The hospital has 5,000 beds, therefore, enabling us not only to observe pathologies very different from our own on significant numbers but also deepen our knowledge of the heritage of traditional Chinese medicine, derived from herbs and plants and which at the Wuhan Renmin Hospital are integrated into treatment programs alongside traditional drugs”.

“The agreement – explains Dr. Giorgio Carbone, Head of Emergency Medicine and Surgery at Humanitas Gradenigo – represents a further evolution of the long and solid bond between Wuhan Renmin Hospital and Gradenigo Hospital, where a group of ophthalmologists were trained in 2008. In addition, over the past ten years, numerous Chinese doctors have also shown interest in investigating some aspects of Emergency Medicine, in particular the use of ultrasound and non-invasive ventilation.
The ever-increasing involvement of Humanitas University gives further value to a pathway created within SIMEU (Italian Society of Emergency and Emergency Medicine) and furthered through a relationship of exchange and training, which has led dozens of specialists from Wuhan Renmin Hospital to attend Humanitas hospitals.
