The U.S. Trade and Development Agency (USTDA) hosted the 5th China Healthcare Executive Leadership Training Program for a delegation of 20 senior decision-makers from hospitals and national and local healthcare bureaus in China. This 2-week training program was organized in collaboration with the U.S.-China Healthcare Cooperation Program (HCP) and China’s Health Human Resources Development Center. The training familiarized the Chinese delegates with U.S. best practices in hospital management, advanced clinical care, and cutting-edge technologies to assist China modernize its healthcare delivery.

The delegation arrived in the U.S. on Sunday, August 7th, spending the first week at the Mailman School of Public Health at Columbia University in New York City, taking courses on hospital management, financial data analysis & decision-making, IT solutions in management, physician engagement, and patient safety, as well as site visits to Mt. Sinai and New York Presbyterian Hospitals. On August 16th, the delegation travelled to Washington, DC. In addition to this one-day workshop on public-private partnerships, the delegation will meet with other healthcare associations before giving formal presentations at USTDA describing how they intend to incorporate what they have learned from this training into their professions in China. The delegation returned to Beijing on Saturday, August 20th.

This training is the fifth in a series of programs that USTDA has supported in collaboration with key U.S. academic partners, such as Columbia University, Johns Hopkins University, Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, and the University of Kansas Medical Center. USTDA will host a sixth training program for another Chinese delegation in October 2016 at the University of Illinois at Chicago and University of Pittsburgh Medical Center.
