New SUMC Medical Education Center

The new SUMC Medical Education Center located on the main campus has been completed and put into use in 2016, marking a new milestone in the history of SUMC’s development. The new Medical Education Center, designed by Herzog & de Meuron Basel Ltd, covers an area of approximately 50 thousand square meters and houses modernly equipped classrooms, research laboratories, computing rooms and others. The cutting-edge facilities including Simulated Medical Center and Human Life Science Hall enable our students to learn and develop in a stimulated environment. The new SUMC, life sciences-centered and fully multidisciplinary, is well positioned to lead in medical education reforms in China, join the ranks of top research universities and colleges, and produce competent medical professionals to serve the region, the nation and even the world.

Simulated Medical Center

The Simulated Medical Center, formerly named Clinical Skills Training Center, was established in 2002 as the first of its kind in China. The center has recently undergone a significant expansion and upgrade, and has been relocated to the new Medical Education Center on the main campus in 2016. Designed as an actual modern hospital, the center provides an advanced platform for early clinical practice and a sophisticated clinical skills training and assessment base to our medical students and residents from all levels. The nearly 6,000 square meter center runs on the sophisticated technologies and houses a number of multi-purpose training rooms and a full series of state-of-the-art clinic rooms and simulated facilities including intensive care unit (ICU) and hybrid virtual operating room. In addition to standardized patients, the center is equipped with various high-end simulators and virtual network technologies such as SimMan 3G simulator, the first virtual hybrid operating system imported from Sweden in Asia, automatic delivery simulator, simulated laparoscopy training system, cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) model, anaesthetic machine, microscopic operating system and multi-functional operating table. Our clinical training courses are strengthened by an extensive collection of virtual learning resources including those shared by Stanford University and University of Alberta. While designed for use by medical students, the facility is also available for first-aid training to groups within and outside the SUMC community.

Human Life Science Hall

The Human Life Science Hall is an interactive, evolving place of discovery of the human body. There are nine stations with over 600 unique human specimens that demonstrate the embryonic development and each organ system of the human body, while the last station features a most technologically advanced anatomy visualization system – Anatomage Table for anatomy education. The Anatomage Table enables students to learn anatomy in 3D exactly as they would on a fresh cadaver and beyond what any cadaver could offer. In the hall, we would like to walk with you in developing deep respect for human life, art and medicine, and in saluting those who donated their bodies for the meaningful cause of medical education.

Campuses and Facilities

SUMC currently has two campuses: one is the original medical campus located at the center of the city, and the other one is shared with the main campus of the university in the northeastern suburb, 6 miles from the heart of downtown Shantou. Students spend their first two years on the main campus and the rest on the medical campus or hospitals. There are regular school buses running between the campuses.

Supported by the Li Ka Shing Foundation, a new Medical Education Center of SUMC has been completed and put into use in 2016. The new SUMC, life sciences-centered and fully multidisciplinary by integrating valuable resources, is a unique and innovative learning environment that will unite Man with Nature and be conducive to nurturing creativity among students and staff.

The program effectively integrates basic medical science with advanced clinical training.

SUMC adopts a student-centered educational model based on the concept of life-long learning and focused on skills development and attitude cultivation. Through interactive projects, joint case studies, group debates, book discussions and journal clubs, and effective self-study, students at SUMC quickly develop their professional competencies and skills. SUMC students are encouraged to experience clinical practice throughout the entire program. Actual clinical exposure is maximized through elective courses, bedside instruction sessions, health services charity projects, clinical rotations and intensive clinical internships in SUMC-affiliated hospitals.

Bachelor of Science in Nursing

SUMC Nursing Department offers a full-range program of Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) training both in English and Chinese. The core value of the SUMC BSN program epitomizes innovation, dedication, and professionalism. The program aims to prepare competent beginning practitioners with a strong knowledge base in nursing science and the ability to make sound clinical judgment.

Our Nursing Department launched the English-stream undergraduate program in Nursing from 2013, collaborating with Chinese University of Hong Kong Nethersole School of Nursing as a joint program. The program is four years in duration leading to a bachelor degree.

In recent years, the SUMC Department of Nursing has undergone rapid growth. We have been recognized as one of the unique higher education programs in Guangdong Province in 2010, receiving the provincial “Integrated Pilot Program for Innovation” award in 2014. Our Fundamentals of Nursing course ranked among the prestigious shared courses in Guangdong, and in 2017, the Innovation and Practice of the Nursing Educational Model for Preparing Future Nurses Program won the first prize of college-wide teaching achievements. Since 2008, the graduation rate and the pass rate of the national licensure examination have always been 100%. In 2014, the Degree Office of the State Council authorized the independent Master of Science in Nursing degree (MSN) program at SUMC. Ministry of Education certified the SUMC Nursing program in 2017.

The Department of Nursing is poised to provide unique opportunities for students. The Simulated Medical Center at SUMC, a state-of-the-art clinical simulation and learning center designed as an actual modern hospital, efficiently facilitates students’ acquisition of the professional skills and competencies required in clinical practice. Our platform of international education, which hires American, Irish and Philippine faculty, and invites experts from Hong Kong, Taiwan and U.S.A to conduct international conferences, has also been established. Student exchange program facilitates diversified thinking.

Our program integrates the traditional nursing courses and develops Adult Nursing, Human Structure and Function and Functional Experiments as our characteristic courses. While the pedagogy encompasses essentials of nursing competence, our student-centered education empowers students to learn via innovative approaches emphasizing clinical practice, research, and creativity. Students are also encouraged to learn the career pride from role modeling provided by excellent doctors and nurses as these future nurses participate in the nursing oath ceremony and Nightingale commemorative activities. Centered on the HEART system of health care education, students, as medical volunteers, gain additional experience through the National Hospice Project and the Medical Poverty Alleviation Program sponsored by the Li Ka-Shing Foundation. As part of the American Dreyfus Foundation’s Problem Solving for Better Health Project (PSBHP), we promote student creativity through the efforts of international, interdisciplinary, and multi-major collaborations.
