About

History

Founded in 1974, National Yang-Ming University, formerly known as National Yang-Ming College of Medicine, has been adhering to the school motto of "benevolent mind and art, putting knowledge into practice" while training excellent humane doctors to provide service by solving medical problems in remote and rural areas.

Education

Graduated in 1982, the first government-sponsored class of the Faculty of Medicine was sent to public clinics and hospitals. Since then, our graduates have penetrated all corners of Taiwan and became pioneers in basic healthcare services. As our graduates won warm acclaim from society, we found that we had successfully accomplished our initial mission.

Research

The staff strives to pursue excellence and promote the development of research projects in biotechnology and medical science. In recent years, we have integrated our research abilities between fundamental and clinical research to promote R&D in fields related to biotechnology and medical science with special emphasis on integrative interdisciplinary projects such as genomic medicine, bioinformatics, neurology, biophotonic engineering, pharmaceutical science, infectious disease, immunology and other key areas of biotechnology.

Career

As a medical education oriented comprehensive university, we aim to provide quality teaching and cultivate advanced professionals. Instead of traditional "subject based learning (SBL)", we continuously promote "problem based learning (PBL)" to cultivate the students' motivation for self-learning and self-centered learning skills.
