The Erasmus MC is the largest and the most versatile university medical centers in the Netherlands. The organization comprises of one Medical Faculty and three university hospitals, and over 50 departments. The visit deepened the mutual understanding of the two parties, and at the same time, laid down a good foundation for the future collaborations in terms of research and education. Indeed, the Erasmus MC has planned to pay a follow-up visit to our School in mid September 2013.
