“We hadn’t seen any American people and happen to see you drive past us. It’s crazy,” said Andrew Lengerich of Cincinnati.
The group had just spent nearly a week at Nanjing Medical University, where they learned about acupuncture and other therapy techniques. Like us, they were on their way to the airport to catch a flight to Beijing for three days of sightseeing.
“It’s been excellent, more enriching than I expected,” Jackson said. “This is our third visit to Nanjing, and the relationship is growing. These kind of visits give our students a comfort level with China.”
Two faculty members from Nanjing already spend a semester each year taking courses in UD’s doctor of physical therapy program. “If a faculty member or two goes through the whole program, they could act as clinical instructors. A student could come out and do a clinical rotation that counts for credit in China,” Jackson said.
