UC plans to open medical school in China

CINCINNATI (AP) — The University of Cincinnati says it is partnering with another university in China to open a medical school there.

Tom Boat, vice president of health affairs and dean of UC’s College of Medicine, tells The Cincinnati Enquirer (http://cin.ci/13eNaOa ) that the university and a partner institution are applying to local governments in Chongqing this summer to start the International College of Medicine.

Boat says the new institution will advance research and clinical studies and likely would result in some Chinese students coming here. Chinese sources will pay most of the operating funds for the initial startup, but some UC professors will go there to teach.

He says UC soon will start trying to raise $100 million, mostly in Asia, for a new building on a suburban campus.
