Taipei Medical University hosted a two-week International Honors Program in June for 25 students from the Indian Institute of Technology Madras, the Indian Institute of Technology Bombay, Anna University and two other colleges.
The program introduced students to the research and innovative teaching resources of the College of Management, the College of Biomedical Engineering, and the Graduate Institute of Mind, Brain and Consciousness of the College of Humanities and Social Sciences. These academic departments organized separate professional classes for students to explore their chosen areas of interest in greater depth.
Students visited Taipei Medical University Hospital and Taipei Municipal Wanfang Hospital to learn about Taiwan’s national health insurance and medical systems. Cultural experiences and Chinese language courses also helped introduce participants to these aspects of life in Taiwan.
The Indian students received strong introductions to big-data applications as well as to biomedical engineering, neuroscience and other world-class TMU research institutes. The two-week course enhanced the university’s international recognition, attracted outstanding students to join research-oriented programs, and extended networks to increase future academic exchanges and collaborations with Indian institutions.
