There three main educational policies of the department: produce medical doctors who have basic and clinical medical knowledge teach students to have active and creative minds in their major subjects encourage students to be philanthropic doctors who care for patients as they care for themselves To accomplish these goals, we open required theory and clinic integrated classes and a discussion centered problem-solving class. We also encourage students to join various extra-curriculum education programs and club activities to raise the spirit of team work and service spirit.
