The Center plays an important educational role as the National Training Base for Physicians of Infectious Diseases, the HIV/AIDS Education and Training Center designated by the Chinese Center for Disease Control and Prevention, and the Clinical Base for Shanghai Municipal Center for Disease Control and Prevention. It also enjoys high recognition in the treatment of severe hepatitis, gestational hepatitis, infections of the central nervous system, tuberculosis, and AIDS.
Its professional and academic strength lies also in an impressive number of honors and titles. The Departments of Obstetrics and Gynecology, serving as a consultation and rescue center for critical laboring women, are engaged in the national key discipline directed by the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology of Fudan University. The Department of TCM is listed among the Leading Clinical Departments in Shanghai and is designated by the State Chinese Medicine Administration Bureau as the National Clinical Center for Emerging and Re-emerging Infectious Diseases.
