Introduction of Medical Education of Medical School

Medical Master (7-year of Medical Education)
The three kinds of courses, including the natural and social science, the basic medical science and clinical sciences designed for the candidates of the Medial Master work equally to the candidates of the Medical Bachelor. There are two differences between the education of Medical Bachelor and Medical Master. The first difference is that, in the first year, the candidates of the Medical Master will study in the School of Biological Sciences. They will learn more courses of biological science, which give them a better background for the study of the medical sciences. The second difference is that the student will receive some basic training on medical research. Some courses, including the Statistics, SAS Software, Neurobiology, the Cellular Biology Technique and Molecular biology Technique will give the students some basics about the research. The students will act as intern for two years. They will specialize in one area in the last year, and besides the basic training of the clinical practice, they have to finish their Master Thesis. The oral defense for the thesis will be held before they finish the seven years education. If they pass all the courses and the thesis defense, they will get the degree of Medical Master.
At the end of the medical education, the students, both the Medical Bachelor and Medical Master, will realize that the medical science is a broad, deep, and rapidly changing discipline. The mastery of medical knowledge and technical skills requires lifelong self-education.
