The International Master/PhD Program in Medicine was established in 2016 and recruits international students from foreign countries such as Vietnam, Indonesia, Mongolia, Philippines, India, Gambia, United States and Japan. This graduate program was particularly designed for international students with expertise in clinical professional, biomedical research and healthcare related education. To accommodate individual aspiration, interests and career goals, IGPM designed more flexible study schemes and courses for students. These courses are categorized into four areas including (I) Molecular Medicine, (II) Clinical Research, (III) Prevention and Evidence-Based Medicine, and (IV) Medical Education (Master only). Furthermore, students are also allowed and encouraged to take English-taught courses from other disciplines in the TMU campus. For graduation, students either pursuing PhD or master degree should take and complete the required and elective courses with minimal total 30 credits including 18 credits from the required courses and 12 credits from the elective courses in PhD program, while 12 credits from the required courses and 18 credits from the elective courses in master program. In addition, students are absolutely required to submit and successful defense their thesis (for master) or dissertation (for PhD) to win degree and diploma.
IGPM provides the first-rate educational environment and ensure all future alumni are elite scholars or scientists, who can initiate research proposals, conduct and execute research projects independently and play the significant roles in their own professional fields. Furthermore, we expect IGPM alumni can bridge TMU to their homeland countries for strengthening international collaborations in medicine and biomedical research, leading to win-win situation for each participated institution.
