China Medical Board
China Medical Board Fellowships: For the last 100 years, the China Medical Board (CMB) has been supporting the development of China’s key medical institutions. Since 2008, IIE/Beijing has been assisting the CMB with the management of three fellowship programs: The Distinguished Professor Program; the Faculty Development Fellowships; and the Next Generation Fellowships.
The Institute of International Education (IIE) currently administers three competitions for the China Medical Board:
The CMB Distinguished Professorships Awards offer financial support and academic recognition to outstanding faculty leaders in 13 of China’s top medical institutions, helping these universities to encourage and nurture their best faculty.
The CMB Faculty Development Awards offer financial support to professional staff from 23 of China’s top medical institutions for international non-degree professionals training in the fields of Health Policy and Systems Sciences. The fellowships are intended to provide mid-career training in these fields for faculty. Training in the clinical or biomedical sciences is not supported by these fellowships.
The CMB Next Generation Fellowships offer financial support to any qualified Chinese citizens resident in China for international Master’s degree study in the fields of Health Policy and Systems Sciences. The fellowships are intended to train a new generation of potential leaders in these fields in China. Training in the clinical or biomedical sciences is not supported by these fellowships. Support for Fellows will consist entirely of training abroad in fulfillment of a Master’s degree. Fellows apply to a university outside of China for the full course of training, typically of 10-24 months, and the degree would be provided by that university.
