More international students are coming to China to study medicine. As one of the most famous colleges for international medicine training in China, Xi’an Jiaotong University has more than 20 years’ experience teaching international medical students. To improve the teaching quality of respiratory medicine, we gave an anonymous questionnaires to international medical student graduates of Xi’an Jiaotong University. The total number of valid return was 107, and the valid usable return rate was 97.3 percent. Most of the students (96.3 percent) aimed to be a doctor after graduation, while 98.1 percent of students considered that the course of respiratory medicine is helpful. About 75.7 percent of the students thought respiratory medicine practice is more helpful than learning by themselves. From this study, we found that we needed to improve the quality of teaching in many aspects, respondents gave us many useful suggestions, and changes have been implemented that we believe will enhance student learning in respiratory medicine.
