Harvard Medical School Office of Global Education (OGE) offers a range of skills-based career development programs to medical professionals, scientists and health-care leaders throughout the world.  The fresh and innovative approaches of these programs can be adapted to the specialized needs of an individual, an institution or a region.

The blended learning approach of the OGE programs combines online and live teaching in an interactive format to allow participation from busy clinicians and clinician-scientists worldwide. Student groups work together across international borders and time zones for better learning outcomes. One example is the Global Clinical Scholars Research Training Program, a 12-month program that provides students with a strong foundation in the methods and conduct of clinical research. This program and similar program offerings enable health-care professionals – wherever they may reside – with access to the high quality of Harvard Medical School’s hands-on team-based approaches and one-on-one faculty interactions.

Qualified individuals for SHINE can apply for three current HMS Global Education 12-month programs, which are designed for busy professionals to build skills and knowledge from experienced leaders in the field.  Participants in these unique, high quality programs will be competitively selected from hospitals and medical centers within Shenzhen.  Scholars who achieve the objectives and attendance requirements of each program receive a Certificate of Completion from Harvard Medical School.  The three current programs are:
