Global Scientist Interdisciplinary Forum of Southern University of Science and Technology (SUSTech) is an important forum for SUSTech to recruit excellent talents. It is aimed to provide a platform for domestic and overseas scholars to exchange thoughts and conduct academic communication, promote disciplinary crossing and academic innovation, and jointly build a world-class university and develop academic disciplines.  SUSTech is striving to build itself into a top research university with distinctive strength and uniqueness both in China and the rest of the world through recruiting and training world-class talents and vigorous efforts in pursing excellence. The School of Medicine will provide recruited applicants with globally competitive remunerations, first-class research laboratories and platforms, and excellent living facilities for themselves and their families.

Introduction to the School of Medicine of SUSTech

The School of Medicine of SUSTech was founded in 2018.  Based in Shenzhen, it is positioned as an internationalized high-level research school of medicine featuring the integration of medicine with sciences, engineering, and humanities.  Its mission is to train and foster leading medical talents who will possess ethical integrity, professional competence and international vision.

Taking the advantage of strong science and engineering disciplines of SUSTech, the School of Medicine will establish a system of “new medicine” to achieve interdisciplinary development between medicine and engineering, the humanities and sciences, with “clinical medicine” as the core focus. Through such integration of medicine with engineering, sciences and the humanities and by drawing on the experience of medical education models both in China and abroad, the School of Medicine is striving to build itself into a base for cultivating world-class medical talents with multidisciplinary capabilities to meet the strategic demands for health development at the  municipal, provincial and national levels. 

The School of Medicine has an internationally competitive leadership team.  Mingzhao Xing, M.D., Ph. D., the founding Dean of the School of Medicine of SUSTech, is a tenured Professor of Medicine (LOA) of the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine and an elected member of the Association of American Physicians, who joined SUSTech full time for his leadership role at the School of Medicine.  He is an internationally renowned physician-scientist and American Board-certified clinical expert in endocrinology and thyroid medicine.  Under the leadership of Dean Xing, the School of Medicine has in short time built a strong leadership team and a unique and efficient administrative organizational structure.  Professor Xiao Guozhi, a former tenured professor at Rush University in Chicago, serves as the Associate Dean in charge of scientific research and graduate studies and Professor Zhang Wenyong, a USA-trained M.D., Ph.D and American Board-certified pathologist, serves as the Associate Dean in charge of undergraduate education.  Seven basic administrative units have been established in the Medical School, now in their full functional operation, including the Dean’s office, the office of human resource, the office of teaching affairs, the office of scientific research, the office of students affairs, the office of graduate student affairs, and the office of financial affairs.  The School of Medicine has a total of 148 employees (including visiting scholars).

The 2019 Global Scientist Interdisciplinary Forum of SUSTech attracted more than 80 outstanding talents from both China and abroad.  More are expected to come this year. In the last 1-2 years the School of Medicine has built a strong faculty, currently with 31 core tenured or tenure-track members (including some to arrive). These include one academician of the Chinese Academy of Sciences and five chair professors. There are additional 12 faculty members on the research track at the Research Assistant/Associate Professor levels.  Among these faculty members there are 40 person-times of outstanding academic talent honor titles at the national, provincial and municipal levels.  There are currently 11 postdoctoral fellows, with an expected rapid growth in the near future.  All members in the individual faculty member’s research team in the School of Medicine has a master or higher education degree.  

The School of Medicine has established eight departments, including Department of Medical Neurosciences, Department of Pharmacology, Department of Biochemistry, Department of Human Cell Biology and Genetics, Department of Physiology and Pathophysiology, Department of Anatomy, Histology and Embryology, Department of Pathology, and Department of Oncology.  Additionally, the Department of Microbiology and Immunology is currently in development.  It also has two specially designated scientific research platforms – the Guangdong Provincial Key Laboratory for Cell Microenvironment and Disease Research and the SUSTech Pain Medicine Center.

The School of Medicine currently has two core undergraduate education programs--clinical medicine and biomedicine, with several more to be developed in the next few years. The SUSTech also has a strategic plan to collaborate with King's College London (UK) in building a joined international medical education program or joined medical school.  The School presently enrolls graduate students for master and doctoral degrees in biology and is currently in the process of applying for accreditation for offering master and doctoral degrees in clinical medicine.

Benefited from the excellent resources in Guangdong Province and Shenzhen Municipality as well as SUSTech, the School of Medicine has, in its relatively short history, achieved remarkable scientific accomplishments.  By October 2020, it has published 140 scientific papers and has been awarded 46 government-sponsored research grants of a total monetary value of 40.6374 million Yuan.  The School has organized 98 major academic seminars. 

The School of Medicine has ten hospitals with direct affiliation or with a collaboration relationship.  These include three directly affiliated hospitals – the First Affiliated Hospital of SUSTech (Shenzhen People’s Hospital), the Second Affiliated Hospital of SUSTech (The Third People’s Hospital of Shenzhen), and the Third Affiliated Hospital of SUSTech (formerly Xili Hospital).  The main tertiary hospital of the School of Medicine its own in adjacency with the campus of the School of Medicine is currently under designing and its construction will start soon. There is one jointly-funded collaborative hospital (SUSTech Yantian Hospital) and five teaching hospitals (the Shenzhen Cancer Hospital of the Chinese Academy of Medical Sciences, the Shenzhen Kangning Psychiatry Hospital, the Shenzhen Children’s Hospital, the Shenzhen Hospital of Peking University, and the Shenzhen Maternity & Child Healthcare Hospital).

The core moral value of the School of Medicine includes civility, team spirit, cooperation, harmony, respect, inclusiveness and mutual help to form a unique cultural atmosphere. The School promotes diverse cultural pursuits and supports and organizes a variety of cultural activities among students and employees. This positive cultural atmosphere is seen in the student dormitories, class rooms, laboratories, conference rooms, offices and everywhere in the School of Medicine. The School of Medicine is dedicated to creating a learning and working atmosphere commensurate with the core humanity value of medical science. 

The School of Medicine at SUSTech will strive towards the goal of building itself into a world-class school of medicine, fostering generations of motivated, responsible and capable physician scientists who are both outstanding research scientists and skilled clinicians.  This is to generate and provide outstanding leaders in clinical medicine and biomedicine to the Guangdong–Hong Kong–Macao Greater Bay Area, the country of China, and the world.
