The health care gap between China and America

Xiaoming Gong

Abstract

Having been working for more than ten years in the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology in Peking Union Medical College Hospital (PUMCH), I have gotten accustomed to the busy clinical work, been used to the crowded clinic: isn’t this medical work? In 2012, I visited the Cleveland Clinic in the United States. I was astonished to see that the Cleveland Clinic was like a hotel! The health care gap between China and the US is the most treasure thing I’ve learnt during the year I stayed in the US besides medical professionals: there are still too much to learn from American medical service.
