Hopkins to open medical school and teaching hospital in Malaysia
Johns Hopkins Medicine has signed an agreement to open the first private, four-year medical school and teaching hospital in Malaysia in the Baltimore-based health system's latest effort to expand its reach overseas.
Executives from Hopkins signed an agreement with a Malaysian partner Tuesday during a ceremony attended by U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton in the capital, Kuala Lumpur.
Hopkins will act largely in a consultative and advisory role to the Perdana University Graduate School of Medicine and Perdana University Hospital, but will have "significant control over the content and quality of the education delivered," Mohan Chellappa, president of global ventures for Johns Hopkins Medicine International, said in an e-mail.
