Innovation and reform have always been a focus of Xiangya Hospital. 8-year program of clinical medicine has been a feature of our medical education reform since 2012. Programs from outstanding medical schools across the globe like Yale University were studied, so that we form our own program to cultivate leading physicians and scientists in the world. Theoretical teaching, observership and internship are largely integrated. The teaching mode has been implemented for 2 years and has received positive feedbacks.
