Graduation Date: 1998
China, Taiwan, United States
Dr. Evelyn Fang has practiced family and internal medicine at United Family Hospitals (UFH) Clinics in Beijing since April 2005. The UFH is a revolutionary international standard health care organization with four sites in China, each dedicated to providing comprehensive, fully integrated health care services with compassion and care.
The Beijing United Family Hospital and Clinic (BJU) opened its doors in 1997. A joint venture between Chindex International, Inc., a leader in healthcare technologies, and the Chinese Academy of Medical Sciences, BJU is the first foreign-invested hospital to operate in China.
As President of the Medical Staff at BJU, the only bilingual hospital in Beijing, Dr. Fang’s fluency in Mandarin Chinese and English (she also speaks medical Spanish) has been a tremendous benefit in both managing the over 50 staff members and caring for the patients, many of whom are expatriates, diplomats, and wealthy members of the local Chinese community. Dr. Fang explained that the opportunity to apply her medical training and language skills was a key motivation to joining BJU, as many of her foreign trained UFH colleagues do not speak Chinese.
Dr. Fang is certified by both the American Board of Family Medicine and the American Board of Internal Medicine. She has a special interest in public health, primary care education, preventive care and chronic disease management.
While she was born in Taiwan, Dr. Fang grew up in California, receiving her undergraduate degree from the University of California, Berkeley. She graduated with a medical degree from St. George’s University School of Medicine in 1998 and returned to California to complete a combined family practice and internal medicine residency at the University of California, San Francisco, Fresno campus; she served as chief resident for both. Dr. Fang also holds a Master of Public Health, with emphasis on health administration, from the California State University in Fresno.
Dr. Fang and her family are now embarking on a new adventure, preparing for the birth of their first child and establishing a new home base in Anchorage, Alaska. Dr. Fang looks forward to returning to China in the future, and as a great supporter of St. George’s University, she hopes to communicate the University’s high academic caliber and global approach to medical education to prospective students from that region.
