Yale president lauds ties with Peking University

Chinese medical students get opportunity for clinical training at Ivy League school

The president of the prestigious Yale University in the United States has led a delegation to visit Peking University where he gave a speech to students on Monday.

The move was part of a bid to further the close collaboration between the two institutions.

Professor Peter Salovey said Yale signed a memorandum of understanding with its famous old Chinese counterpart that will allow medical students from Peking University to participate in clinical training at Yale.

Salovey said during his speech that Yale was proud to have signed the agreement.

Lin Jianhua, president of Peking University, said the arrival of the delegation from Yale was the highlight of the ongoing Peking University-Yale University Exchange Week, which kicked off on March 14.
