Mission Statement of the China-U.S. Center on Medical Professionalism

Medical Professionalism means placing the interests of patients first, conforming to professional norms set by a self-regulating body, and maintaining technical competence. Professionalism is a contract between the medical profession and society, a promise from the physician community, to safeguard the health of population. The China-U.S. Center on Medical Professionalism, PUHSC, seeks to improve medical professionalism by engaging different stakeholders. Currently, it seeks to understand the intrinsic meaning and implications of professionalism in the context of China.
The Center extracts diverse practices provided by stakeholders in the aim of helping both physicians and their community raise the sense of medical professionalism, allowing the profession to fulfill its promise to society, to improve the health of population, and enhance the doctor-patient-relationship.
The China-U.S. Center on Medical Professionalism, PUHSC, seeks to collaborate and share with colleagues from China, the United States, and other countries, to construct a platform that will further the development of medical professionalism. Our activities include, but are not limited to, an annual conference, workshops, funding research projects, funding visiting scholars, and publishing papers, books and newsletters.
