At the same time, in order to ensure the teaching quality of foreign students, a team of specialized teachers, who have good English proficiency, more than three years of clinical experiences, and a title of lecturer or above, is set up for foreign students. All teachers are required to pass the trial lecture and training organized by the relevant departments and the Education Department before teaching. In terms of improving students’ clinical skills, the Education Department has also specially selected skill examiners and training teachers to collaborate with Clinical Skills Teaching Center to regularly organize examinations, so as to strengthen students’ clinical skills and improve their practical ability.
