On November 5th, four China’s doctors visited the Confucius Institute in Edmonton accompanied by a staff of the University of Alberta. These doctors are from the Affiliated Hospital of Zhejiang University, China who are participating in a three-month academic medical program called Young Physician Program offered by the Faculty of Medicine & Dentistry at the University of Alberta.
The visitors took a tour of the CIE. They also had an opportunity to meet with the CIE teachers. After a presentation on the work at the CIE and the positive results from the past 11 years, the visitors asked questions such as the cooperation between the UA and the CIE.
In the future, the CIE will continue supporting the program by providing a CIE day for the participants during which they can learn about the CIE, public education in Edmonton, Chinese Bilingual program & Chinese and Culture program in Edmonton Public Schools as well as some information about Canada.
