POST GRADUATION IN CHINA
Medical resident training is internationally recognized as a continuing medical education process, aiming to cultivate the ability of novice physicians to work independently. Training of the residents is thus crucial to the quality and development of medical services.
In December 2013, seven Chinese government ministries jointly launched the Guidelines for Standardized Resident Training (SRT). The release and implementation of the guidelines represent China's commitment to achieving its quality standards as a national strategy. The guidelines will become compulsory nationally by 2020.
The guidelines for SRT include four sections: training objective, rotation length requirement, training content, and reference material.
Medical graduates, after successful completion of schooling, are required to take SRT in their chosen specialties. After taking SRT, they are enrolled in the nationally recognized continuing education program. Based on SRT, graduates need a minimum of three years working as a resident physician.
Residents are actively involved in patient assessment and all aspects of patient care, such as initial history and physical, diagnosis, therapeutic planning, and interaction with patients and their families. They play essential roles in the daily activities in clinics and hospitals.
Currently, taking SRT is obligatory in the national health care system, which ensures that all hospitals in all regions carry out residency programs following the same standards. This practice guarantees the consistency and further the quality of resident training across the country. The training is typically provided by government-accredited training bases, such as tertiary grade-A hospitals, due to their affordances in terms of human resources, equipment, financial support, and disease cases. The Chinese Medical Doctor Association has been designated to manage the accreditation of training bases. A subsidiary branch of the association is in operation in altogether 31 provinces, municipalities, and autonomous regions in China. The unified accreditation of training bases has guaranteed the consistency and quality of the resident training programs nationwide.
Trainees are evaluated through a series of quantitative and qualitative assessments provided by MOH. Trainees who complete the training process and pass a demanding examination are awarded a certificate.
