Johns Hopkins will train China's next generation of doctors, researchers and hospital administrators under a new agreement with Sun Yat-sen University.

The agreement was signed this week in the city of Guangzhou, where the university has affiliated hospitals, officials with Johns Hopkins Medicine International said.

China's health system is growing rapidly and officials there hope Hopkins' expertise will help them develop a strong foundation for medical care.

 

Under the agreement, Hopkins researchers will teach courses at Sun Yat-sen. They will also create a fellowship program where Chinese doctors can study at Hopkins.

Hopkins will also provide seed grants for research projects that can develop into largers studies.
