The Department of Family Medicine partnered with universities in Shanghai and Xi’an, China to establish training programs in family medicine in 2012. As part of this partnership, the department welcomed their fifth class to UNMC for the U.S.-Sino Family Medicine Leadership Development Course. Various training techniques, including models and simulations, play a role in this training.
Drs. Jeff Harrison, Kim Jarzynka, Paul Paulman, Audrey Paulman and Mike Sitorius are coordinators of the course.
Students of the course concluded their time at UNMC by presenting what they learned and shared their cultural experiences. The presentations also included a performance from Dr. Li Jian, a frequent performer in the Beijing Opera. The day concluded with a luncheon and certificate presentation from Dr. Jeff Harrison and Dr. Kimberly Jarzynka.
