According to Qiu Yong, president of Tsinghua University, the Vanke School of Public Health will adopt new models of interdisciplinary cooperation and education. It aims to cover four research fields oriented towards graduate education on: preventative medicine, comprehensive healthcare, big data in healthcare, and public health policy and management.

A special fund is set up for the school’s development with a donation from China Vanke Co., LTD to Tsinghua University Education Foundation.

Aiming to embrace the challenges posed by global medical and health developments and by critical domestic demands, the school is dedicated to fostering leaders in the field and to major public health issues at home and abroad.

In the next five to 10 years, the school plans to provide support to China's epidemic control, including vaccine development and decisive think tanks related to major public health policy making.

In close cooperation with the World Health Organization, the school anticipates becoming a world leader in terms of epidemiology, holistic health monitoring and early warning.
