The spread of COVID-19 has made the world full of challenges. Also, the pandemic is reshaping the way of education, research, learning and global engagement. With the ongoing pandemic, global health is on the spotlight more than ever. Especially, there is an urgent need for fresh thinking on how higher medical education should be better prepared for future medical challenges.

As much as the virus distances people, communications and a shared commitment to human welfare brought us ever closer. The Forum is going to have an in-depth look at medical research, medical education and global healthcare, from infectious disease prevention and control to population and health; from digital education to online international collaboration, as well as reflections and lessons learned in the COVID-19 age.

Jointly hosted by ZJU and APRU, exclusively organized by Zhejiang University School of Medicine and the Second Affiliated Hospital of Zhejiang University School of Medicine. Physicians, researchers, global health experts, educators are welcomed to share ideas and exchange knowledge at the one-day hybrid event, to further explore what we can contribute to advance human health through innovative discovery, education and health care to address big challenges facing the human beings in the Post-Pandemic Era.
