China Medical University Taking Internationalization to the Next Level

Date: February 23, 2012

“To develop international academic interaction and improve the quality and standards of our education, we encourage our students to study abroad and invite foreign students to study in our school.” China Medical University vice-president Trong-Neng Wu commented on the university’s international exchange program. He believes that the essence to internationalization is the selection of the best students for overseas education; providing them with the opportunity to increase their knowledge, improve their skills, and broaden their minds. He further commented that through interaction with foreign students, it is also possible to ascertain if the university’s standards are in line with those of the rest of the world, and prepare to compete internationally.

Taiwan’s medical schools are actively pursuing international connections. Recently, China Medical University and Georgia State University signed a transnational dual-semester system agreement in which China Medical University will select 10 of its finest students to study at Georgia State University for one year. Reciprocally, Georgia State University will send 15 of its students to study at China Medical University for 3 weeks. Georgia State University was the third school to sign the agreement following Université de Lausanne and Tulane University. The scholarships provided by China Medical University will enable the selected students to complete exchange study and to obtain dual academic degrees.

To provide students with diverse learning environments, China Medical University has been actively cooperating and signing agreements with numerous overseas schools. Currently, it is affiliated with 83 sister schools worldwide. With the scholarships provided by China Medical University, approximately 200 students can undertake international study each year. China Medical University also aims to improve the English learning environment for its students by selecting 28 teachers to pursue further education in Canada and America for 3 to 6 months.

On February 15, 2012, China Medical University and Georgia State University held a cooperative agreement signing ceremony. It was signed by China Medical University College of Health Care Dean Professor Kuang-Fu Cheng and Georgia State University College of Biology Chairmen Professor Phang-Cheng Tai and Professor Chung-Dar Lu. Following this ceremony, Office of Administration Chairman Jing-Gung Chung, Office of Student Affairs Chairman Cheng-Wen Lin, Office of International Affairs Chairman Shin-Da Li, and College of Public Health Dean Peng-Jy Tsai convened to discuss the student exchange program and plans for future activities.
