The important role of GPs and the high prevalence and burden of chronic disease in China have been discussed in other articles in this series, so there is no need to reiterate this background here. This article deals with the pedagogy of chronic disease management as presented to cohorts of Chinese GPs from Shenzhen attending an offshore program at Monash University in Australia. The program, which commenced in 2010, was 7 weeks in duration and has now expanded to 13 weeks, enabling greater coverage of important topics, more site visits, and instruction in teaching and research methods, along with development of research proposals often based on management of a chronic disease.
