Introduction

 

   
 

The School of Medicine for International Students is a newly established four-year M.D. program (taught in English for Bachelor's degree) in compliance with the government policy that aims to cultivate passionate and devoted international medical professionals for countries that have a diplomatic relationship with Taiwan. Students are conferred only a Bachelor's diploma in English upon graduation and must return to their home countries after graduation, and students are not allowed to take the medical licensing examination or to conduct medical practice in Taiwan.


   
  As one of the leading universities in southern Taiwan, ISU provides students with innovative ideas and excellent teaching resources in order to foster them to be well-trained and qualified health professionals. The Program will be carried out in a close partnership with E-Da Hospital, a well-recognized teaching hospital affiliated to E United Group, which has received a full accreditation from the Joint Commission International (JCI), an U.S.-based independent and nonprofit organization and the first Collaborating Center designated by World Health Organization (WHO). Students will be able to not only learn from distinguished professors, doctors and specialists, but also have direct access to state-of-the-art medical facilities, so that the basic medical sciences and the clinical training can be fully integrated.
