MedEther, in Partnership with Shenzhen University, is delighted to announce the opening of an Aesthetic Plastic Cadaver Training Centre.
Shenzhen is a major city in Guangdong Province, China. It forms part of the Pearl River Delta megalopolis. In 1980, Shenzhen was designated China’s first Special Economic Zone. Shenzhen’s population in 2017 is estimated to be at 12,905,000. Shenzhen’s modern cityscape is the result of its vibrant economy made possible by rapid foreign investment since the institution of the policy of “reform and opening” in late 1979 when the Special Economic Zone was established. The city is a leading global technology hub, and is dubbed as the next Silicon Valley of the world.
Shenzhen is a major financial centre in southern China. The city is home to the Shenzhen Stock Exchange as well as the headquarters of numerous well-known home grown multinational companies such as Vanke, Hytera, China Merchants Bank, Tencent, ZTE, Huawei and BYD. In 2017, Shenzhen’s economic output totalled $338 billion, surpassing that of Guangzhou, Hong Kong for the first time and ranked No.3 in China, only behind Shanghai and Beijing. Its new status will allow the city to become the leading economic engine in China’s Greater Bay Area Initiative. Shenzhen University is a public university established in 1983 and is located in Nanshan district, Shenzhen, Guangdong, China. It is accredited by the State Council of the People’s Republic of China and is funded by the Shenzhen Council Government. It is regarded as the fastest developing university in China and is ranked as the best university in Shenzhen. Its most famous alumnus is Ma Huateng, the founder and CEO of Tencent Company – developer of WeChat.
This centre will provide trainees with an ideal setup to practice and develop their plastic surgical skills, which will improve the quality of care provided to patients throughout China.
MedEther would like to thank Shenzhen University for uniting with us in the development of this training centre and supporting our desire to improve the quality of surgeons practicing throughout China.
Whilst this is an excellent step, MedEther is aware that there is still much more to do in their goal to further advance the skills and abilities of Chinese Surgeons so that they are the envy of the rest of the world.
