Taipei Medical University’s (TMU) two-week long International Honors Program, held between June 10-21, 2019, came to a successful close, with 27 students from 7 Indian universities (including Indian Institute of Technology Madras; Indian Institute of Technology Kanpur; Anna University; University of Mysore) allied with TMU participating in the program.


The students saw and experienced in person the exceptional results the TMU system has produced in the fields of Artificial Intelligence for Efficient Health Care, Biomedical Engineering Frontiers in Health Care, and Brain Sciences and Bio-imaging, where emphasis are placed on both teaching and research. 

Positive experiences from past participants of the program have generated positive word of mouth among Indian students. A number of participants chose to register in the program through the introduction and recommendation of their peers who had previously attended the course. Through TMU’s excellent academic output in the fields of artificial intelligence in medicine, biomedical engineering and neuroscience, TMU is able to further attract Indian student of excellence to TMU for exchange, internship, research and development, and create a better foundation for the University’s long-term academic exchange and collaboration with Indian institutions of higher education in the future.
