03 FN: Harlan Krumholz

Yale Medicine Magazine, 2014 - Autumn


Harlan Krumholz, M.D., M.Sc., the Harold H. Hines Jr. Professor of Medicine, was one of 100 foreign experts to receive the Friendship Award from the Chinese government, in a ceremony in the Great Hall in September. This is the highest award given to foreign experts. Krumholz’s award is in recognition of his work to strengthen the Chinese clinical research infrastructure.

Since 1991, when the awards were first given, 1,399 foreign experts have been honored. In most years, 50 foreign experts are selected for awards, but that number increases to 100 in years that mark significant anniversaries of the founding of the People’s Republic of China.

To be eligible for the award, one must be a foreign expert who has made prominent contributions to China, such as helping the country solve key problems, enabling domestic enterprises to achieve breakthroughs in development or other outstanding accomplishments in teaching, academic studies and overseas publicity.
