上海同济 武汉同济

上海同济 <wbr>武汉同济

今年是同医学院110周年的校,使我想起自己在富有激情的月里做的一件不成功的事情,一晃眼都快20年了。故事生在1998年,当我己来美国8年了,但是通讯远没有么通𣈱。我在网上游览时发现了上海同大学的美国校友会的网站,他的网站做得漂亮的原因恐怕是因校友会主席是在同算机出身的,而武没有任何的美国校友会,更不上网站了。

 

新浙江大学已合并生,然只有浙大一家合并了,但全国的冲很大。原来的浙江医科大学已新浙大的医学院,我想母校同医科大学的命运也只能走合并的道路了。我得同与其和武大学合并,不与重上海同而成大学医学院,当我借用美国康乃大学和它的医学院分隔几百英里的例子来服自己和大家,如果当有高就更有服力了。我便上海同美国校友会的网上箱写了一封信,没有想到的是,他以校友会主席吴建主的数位负责人迅速并且情地回了我。吴建当时还是一位族,在己是相当成功的IT创业人士了。我一拍即合地决定先在美国建立合的同校友会,将他的网站改成合校友会的网站,然后试图国内的两所同。他时积极与上海同大学女校吴启迪系,据说还得到了她的支持,我则给的裘法祖教授写过亲笔信,但是没有得到裘先生的回函。他们还弄了个一官半职给我,任命我大学美国合校友会的副主席,负责方面的工作。这样我起草了一份希望上海同和武合并的英文呼吁,放在了合同校友会的网上。

 

是一段未竟的尝试,但它表达的是天下同母校的感情,包括一位普通的武美国校友的担心,因他的母校从校名来看就是簸流离:同大学医学院、中南同医学院、武医学院、同医科大学和中科技大学同医学院。大家读这得回味的史吧:

 

1。下面我在2010920日放入新浪博客写的注。当不会中文入法,所以全部用英文写成:

 

We are surprised to realize that we have already arrived in an age that we are able to tell a decade-old story. In the fall of 1998, we sensed an upcoming transition that our Alma Mater, Tongji Medical University, may have to face in the era when the new Zhijiang University was emerging through the combination of four different schools in Hangzhou. My browse activities led me find a newly developed website of Tongji University America Alumni Association (TJUAAA) under the leadership of their president Jian Wu. He was a computer science major from Shanghai Tongji and had been working as a software engineer in the Bay area of California. My email communication with Jian received an enthusiastic response on my initial proposal of exploring the possibility to merge two Tongjis in the future. After a few round of discussions, we believed it would be a good idea to have a combined Tongji website to serve all of the Tongji alumni. I drafted an essay to explain our joined mission and this article was put into the combined Tongji alumni website. 

 

Unlike the strong influential alumni groups in the United States, our voice had a limited calling power as this campaign was ultimately unsuccessful and we are now part of HUST since 2000. One positive outcome from this is that I got reconnected with one classmate who was doing the postdoctoral training in Germany, while I was coordinated to collect the communication list of the alumni from Wuhan Tongji. Later on, we all were aware of Chen Ligong's noted article on the opposition of Wuhan Tongji's merge with HUST, and some details in the nearly humiliated negotiation process with Wuhan University. We completely understood the feeling when Qiu Fazhu and Wu Zhongbi were in a position to defend Tongji’s brand in their talks with the arrogant Wuda officials. Reading through these twelve-year old words, the emotion is still there. 

 

2An essay written in 1998 for combined Tongji website: (当大学合美国校友会网站写的呼吁上海同和武合并的英文文章,曾放在我网站的首。当中文件更是十分缺乏,只能写英文)

 

“As one of the most prestigious universities in China, Tongji started her prospective journey as a medical school in Shanghai, which was established by German physician Dr. Bolon in 1907. Early Tongji Medical School with its special relationship with Germany, while a powerhouse in medical education and research, had served as a unique academic basis to introduce modern western medicine to ancient China. 

 

The rich history on medical education has been associated with Tongji University for almost a half century. However, the order of separating Tongji's Medical School from its main campus in 1950s had a terrible impact on Tongji University's operation as a first-class university although the separated Tongji Medical University in Wuhan has been developed into one of the finest medical schools in China. Last year, thousands of Tongji alumni around the world, together with faculties and students of Tongji University in Shanghai (Shanghai Tongji) and Tongji Medical University in Wuhan (Wuhan Tongji), simultaneously celebrated our Alma Mater's 90 years birthday. Looking back, the two universities of Tongji not only share the respected name but also the tradition of excellence on teaching and research; Looking forward, the two Tongjis have to face the future challenge: recombination of the high education system in response to the merging China's economic power. 

 

The idea of potentially merging Shanghai Tongji and Wuhan Tongji in a near future has received a strong positive response from numerous alumni and friends associated with both universities. It will be an exciting project to pursue in terms of combining two solid schools with a similar history. In a united Tongji University, medical students need spend three to four years of their college life in the main campus of Shanghai Tongji to build a solid foundation on basic science and humanity knowledge. With a deep understanding of the laws about how nature and society operate and function, the medical students will have more broad views to go back to Wuhan Tongji for finishing their formal medical training. The requirement of completed college education prior to medical school, beginning at Johns Hopkins University approximately one hundred years ago, is a characterized principle of America's medical education system. This system is renowned for its ability of producing not only highly quality clinical practitioners for manage care but also the outstanding physician scientists for scientific discovery and innovation. If we could establish this system in Tongji successfully, the demands of high quality pre-medical education are also a driving force to enhance Shanghai Tongji's development on basic science and humanity departments, a transition from a technical institute into a real comprehensive university. 

 

It is obvious that we need work hard to overcome the geographic barrier between Wuhan and Shanghai, but these concerns can be minimized in the situation when China becomes more advanced in electrical communication and transportation. In the United States, one of Ivy League, Cornell University has been successfully operating its medical school in New York City, several hundred miles from its main campus in Ithaca, Upstate New York. We even can view this problem positively, medical students who have a privilege to study in the environment of both Shanghai and Wuhan sub-cultures will enrich their life experiences in a wonderful young age. 

 

It is also a privilege for any comprehensive university (even in the United States) to host a medical school. There are only 128 medical schools in this country compared with more than one thousand universities and colleges around the fifty states. If you consider the University of California at San Francisco (UCSF) as a medical school of UC, Berkeley, Princeton University may be the only elite comprehensive university who does not have a medical school in the United States. We have impressed that the medical schools in this country are almost always the largest and most important component in the university. The reason for this phenomenon is very simple, that is because human being cares about themselves, life science has a direct beneficial impact on the mankind. 

 

We have demonstrated that the unification of two universities of Tongji is an exciting project to explore. The positive results of the project will benefit both universities and significantly improve Tongji University's position in the map of China's high education. We have agreed to unite our America's Alumni organization of both schools as one of the initial steps. Let's work together to push this project forward and turn our dream into a reality as soon as it can.”
