DTU Director Professor Rury Holman was elected as the first China Initiative for Diabetes Excellence (CIDE) program Visiting Professor on 21st September 2012, and gave four invited talks at their two-day meeting in Hangzhou, China.

The CIDE program, which received a 5-year grant under the auspices of the Chinese Ministry of Health, is run in collaboration with the Chinese Diabetes Society (CDS), the Chinese National Center for Chronic and Noncommunicable Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the World Health Organisation Collaborating Center for Diabetes Education, Translation and Computer Technology (WHO), and the International Diabetes Center (IDC) & Mayo Clinic.

This program is training 500 Chinese endocrinologists as diabetes experts, who in turn will train 10,000 community and county doctors. The physcians are divided into four classes and will attend quarterly meetings over two years that cover diabetes, complications and research. Each CIDE scholar will follow at least 25 patients and enter their clinical data into an electronic medical record to create a five-year cohort of more than 12,000 individuals with type 1 or type 2 diabetes. These data will provide a basis for evaluating the training and 10% of the CIDE scholars will be offered a fellowship to train at the IDC/Mayo.
