The International Master/Ph.D. Program in Medicine (IGPM) was founded in 2016. The IGPM recruits international students from Vietnam, Indonesia, United States, Switzerland, Gambia, and Malawi with expertise in clinical professions, biomedical research and healthcare areas. To accommodate individual aspiration, interests and career goals, IGPM designed flexible study schemes and courses for students. These courses are categorized into six areas including (1) Molecular Medicine, (2) Community Medicine, (3) Tropical Medicine, (4) Neurological Medicine, (5) Clinical Medicine, and (6) Healthcare Education. The goal of IGPM is for our students to become elite scholars or scientists with abilities to initiate research projects and conduct independent research, thus play significant roles in their own professional fields. Furthermore, we expect IGPM alumni to build an academic bridge between TMU and their home countries for more international collaborations in medicine and biomedical research.
The International Ph.D. Program for Cell Therapy and Regeneration Medicine (IPCTRM) began to recruit students in the fall semester of 2017. The mission of this program is to promote translational medicine and clinical trials of cell/ stem cell based therapy. IPCTRM provides diverse research topics, including immune cell applications in cancer treatment; blood and mesenchymal stem cells for regenerative processes, wound healing, graft-versus-host disease, and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis; as well as drug screening platform with cancer stem cells and disease-specific induced pluripotent stem cells. IPCTRM brings experts and scientists together to facilitate outstanding research not only in basic study, but also in clinical translational medicine and industrial cell/stem cell product development.
