The program will also provide physicians with online training and education, a skills lab and mentoring by USC faculty.The agreement provides for as many as 75 surgeons to come to USC each year and for research collaboration and faculty exchanges. Keck will also use telemedicine to offer second opinions to physicians and patients throughout China.Brad Selby, chief administrative officer of the Department of Surgery at Keck, said the agreement is a significant initiative for  the university and California.“It’s also an important project for California because the Pacific Rim is vitally important to the university as a whole,” Selby said. “There’s a huge Chinese population here in Southern California.”Selby said it is important to form partnerships with China because of the presence of Chinese-Americans in California.“There were a lot of compelling reasons for us [to enter into an agreement with China], especially future opportunities, research collaboration and patient care.
