    It would be really helpful to understand more about health care in China. How is it structured?

    How does it work with both traditional and modern medicine?

    What type of training programmes exist? How do these compare with those in the rest of the world?

    Is there an opportunity to develop a new profession in China? Podiatry?

    Relationships between Podiatry and Orthopaedics here in the UK have not always been good, but things are improving, more team work and now the Podiatric Surgery training programme is approved by both the Royal Colleges here in Scotland, Royal College of Surgeons Edinburgh and the Royal College of physicians and Surgeons Glasgow. We can hopefully work together as professions trying to collaboratively provide the best outcomes for patients.

    In China, the health care structure is very complex.It is difficult to explain it in one word.Generally,the system is divided into own expenses,national expenses and social expenses.

    Now,the traditional medicine has special hospital and in some integrated hospital ,there are some department for traditional medicine. We get bachelor's degree of medicine for about 5~8 years.Then we must use 5~6 years to get doctor's degree.In my hospital, we have many foreign students,for example, Australia,Canada,Japan and so on.

    Many new professions have been developed in China.But for podiatry,Just have a few hospital to do it. And many foot operations was done by orthopaedist,just like me:).And in university,no courses and specialty is set up for podiatry.So,in China ,there are many opprtunities for podiatrist.
