In order to cultivate high-level professional talents engaged in scientific research and teaching work related to basic medical disciplines, SBMS has established the Basic Medicine major since 2014, which is named as Zhu Xianyi Class. Each year, Zhu Xianyi class enrolls 20 students for elite training. The main courses are bilinguallytaught in small classes by teachers with senior professional experiences. The class implements the 4+1+4 training modeand knock-out system. The qualified students will directly be recommend tobe postgraduates with exemption to enter the training for successive postgraduate and doctoral programs of study. With the implementation of 1 versus 1 tutorial system, the students and the tutors select each other by a bi-direction mode. Most of the tutors are overseas high-level talents and doctoral tutors. During the establishment of professional training programs for Basic Medicine-majored students, we strive to consolidate the foundations, closely link with the clinic and highlight the frontier progresses and the cross-integration of medicine, science and engineering. By establishing clinical thinking training courses and early-contact courses with scientific research, setting up innovative credits, encouraging the students to participate in scientific research projects and scientific research competitions, we help the students to expand their vision, foster their scientific research ideas and cultivate their scientific research innovation abilities. In 2016, the Basic Medicine major was approved as the dominant specialty in Tianjin during the 13th Five-Year Plan.
Currently all teachers and students in SBMS are making arduous efforts forpersisting in the spirit of school mottoSeeking Truth &Summum Bonum, centering on teaching work, deepening teaching reform, standardizing teaching management, strengthening connotation construction and achieving the goal of “cultivating top innovative talents and excellent doctors with souls”.
