Founded in 1960, the College of Medicine, Taipei Medical University is now composed of ten academic units. We currently have close to 600 faculty members, including full-time professors, adjunct professors, and clinical instructors, and a total of 1600 students comprised of undergraduate students, Master’s degree and Ph.D. students. We integrate resources from not only 3 JCI-accredited affiliated
hospitals, Taiwan Medical University Hospital, Taipei Medical University Wang-Fang Hospital and Taipei Medical University Shuang-Ho Hospital, but also Graduate Institutes, and Research Centers to nurture researchers and students in the field of Basic Medical Sciences, Clinical Medicine and Applied Medicine.
To achieve greater perfection in medical research and education, we have developed several translational research groups in different research fields. In addition, we hold “Mushan Biomedical Research Seminar” monthly inviting domestic and oversea distinguished experts to share their research journeys. Several international symposiums are also held annually to boost the collaboration between TMU and other renowned universities. Furthermore, we have signed MOUs to establish official relationship with universities all over the world, and also the Dual Degree/Joint Degree Agreements with America and Canada; we expect to provide the opportunity for international academic exchange and broaden students’ global vision to cultivate advanced physician scientists.
We will continue on our missions to advance the discovery of disease treatment and improve human health via providing a high quality and interactive research environment. We believe our researchers and students will be the very pioneers in medical research fields. In the meanwhile we are committed to maintaining an academic culture that respects diversity and fosters compassion to change our students into professionals who will be leaders in healthcare.
