Duke University will work with a major academic health center and hospital network in China to help it do a better job of serving its patients.
Duke says the seven-year agreement calls for its experts to go to Peking University Health Science Center to help it become more
efficient. The work will focus on health care management, research
and clinical trials.
Dr. Victor Dzau is chancellor for health affairs and president and chief executive of the Duke University Health System. He says the partnership can improve health care in China and increase Duke's ability to help attack global health issues.
A cardiovascular training center will be one of the first projects. Officials plan a heart center and a Center of Global Health.
