The Work of the Institute


The Tseu Medical Institute at Harris Manchester College is a foundation for embracing medical care, research and practice worldwide. Its aim is to foster links with emerging centres of medical expertise and embracing links with established research centres. The Institute appoints Visiting Fellows from abroad to work on research with medical fellows from the College or from the wider University of Oxford. Such visiting fellows would be appointed as Visiting Fellows (Academicians). These would be prestigious appointments, typically for one term, and academics would be expected to complete a pre-agreed body of work. The duration of the appointment would be variable and ad hominem. Typically the work undertaken might be working on a book, finishing a research project, retraining in techniques or establishing closer ties with colleagues working on related problems in the University or the NHS research facilities. Such fellows would be encouraged to foster links with and teach the other resident medics of the college, and would typically be expected to give several invited lectures. We will build a Medical Centre to house the Institute, and this would house the 14 medical students of the College and provide rooms for the six medical fellows which include two Professors.

Tseu Building Oxford
The work of the Tseu Medical Institute includes:

  1. Awarding prestigious Cruddas Link Fellowships to physicians and medical scientists who are engaged in establishing or enlarging medical academic centres, throughout the world , where their links to Oxford would provide support, resource and prestige.
  2. Awarding prestigious Lord Harris Visiting Fellowships to physicians and medical students from worldwide emerging and established centres of excellence to come to Oxford, Harris Manchester College, typically for one academic term to undertake or complete an agreed project of academic work.
  3. Building the Tseu Medical Institute facility at Harris Manchester College to accommodate the Visiting and Link Fellows, as necessary, and to provide an infrastructure for their academic interchange with the medical fellows and students of the College.
