Tsinghua University students visiting Ghent for the 3rd Edition of Continuing Education Course
Ghent University and the Tsinghua University organized for the third time a fellowship course for Chinese Master of Public Health students and professionals around health care in Belgium and Europe.
A group of Chinese students, government officials, public services representatives, senior administrative staff and senior hospital managers came to visit Ghent and Brussels to get a better sense of the Belgian health care system. It was the third time that this course took place in the framework of the three year old partnership for collaboration between Ghent University and the Tsingua University.
During the week the participants follow specific courses by guest speakers and conduct field visits. This year topics included sexual and reproductive health, aging population care, health care policies, intercultural communication and patients’ rights among others. The group visited the ‘Leie Home’ nursing home, the rehabilitation centre of Ghent University, the Ghent University Hospital (UZ) reception a surgical day clinic and a pediatric clinic.
To strengthen the policy link, the participants also visited the European Parliament and the Mission of the People’s Republic of China to the European Commission.
