Message from the Dean

Cheng-Chieh Lin, M.D., Ph.D.

  The China Medical University College of Medicine (CMUCM) was established in 1958. It encompasses School of Medicine, Department of Medical Laboratory Science and Biotechnology, Department of Biomedical Imaging and Radiological Science, and Graduate Institute of Biomedical Science. In addition, there are 4 Ph.D. and 1 Master Programs affiliated to the College. As a top-tier academic center, our goal is to cultivate medical professionals with humanities and empathy for patients and to improve health through innovative research. In the past 20 years, we experienced four times of medical education reform. The pivotal alteration was to scatter the traditional teaching programs into integrated curriculums based on the human organ systems. Also, we added problem-based learning (PBL) at the end of each curriculum to enhance the capabilities of students to apply the academic knowledge to resolve or understand the problems they encountered during the process of PBL discussion. To escalate and consolidate the hands-on clinical practice, we scheduled the medical students to the affiliated China Medical University Hospital (a top-ranked medical center with 2000 beds) in their 5th grade, and the clinical curriculum was delivered in each rotating clinical Department by the faculties or residents. The students were allocated in clinical care squad and were supervised by the team attending physician and house officer. In each clinical Department, the students should also expose themselves to the relevant Hybrid-curriculum, which are the comprehensive courses of recorded mini-lectures addressed by the teaching faculties. Students will be evaluated from different aspects of settings to ensure their learning situations being appropriate, and the learning threshold being surpassed.
  To broaden the global vision of our students, we offered abundant chances of student-exchange programs with leading international universities or colleges. The students may stay in the collaborated universities for one year or longer and then return to CMUCM to accomplish their degrees. Also, they may have a short-term visit to the aforementioned academic units to absorb educational nutrition. More importantly, we offered scholarships for selected graduate students to research in renowned laboratories during the process of their academic curriculum. An exclusive ‘Elite Steed Program’ for cultivating M.D./Ph.D. was founded seven years ago. Since 2019, we recruit five students annually into a newly revised 3.0 program, and they may secure dual degrees once the course was accomplished. The tuition will be waived throughout the whole curriculum.  
  The alumni are the necessary support for the development of Medical College. The connections among alumni, students, and faculties are crucial for the constant maintenance of the College. Our doors are always opened to our alumni, and we welcome your visit, valuable suggestions, and donations.
  In this family, we treasure every member and pay especially attention to those that suffer from economic difficulties or emotional frustrations. As addressed in the Proverbs ‘A merry heart doeth good like a medicine: but a broken spirit drieth the bones’, we sincerely care for the mood and spiritual status of our students and members in this regard. We wish everybody abide under the shadow of the Medical College can help each other and panteth together for a glorious future.
