The direction for long-term cultivation of medical talents should cooperate with (1) national key economic and technological development. (2) Key CMUH research fields. (3) State social demand and urgent fields such as: cancer research, cardiovascular disease (including cerebral stroke) research…etc.; and (4) CMUH vision and mission: searching for breakthrough and integration of state-of-the-art medical technology and the internationalization of medical industry.
According to the strategic action plan for “Key Medical Technological Development” established according to the vision and objectives, the intermediate and short term plan for CMUH talent cultivation offers the following features: (1) Immediate effect which adds points to the leadership of CMUH, with foreseeable competitiveness and leadership；(2) creating favorable environment to improve medical quality and service performance. (3) Must cooperate with CMUH development features and needs with competitive advantages (4) Developing on existing foundation and taking account of integration function; and (5) must conform to social demand.
Education and Training for Medical Students and Residents: CMUH is a medical-center grade of medical university hospital with mission in instructional training. CMUH integrates fundamental and clinical instruction and not just emphasizes on passing down the professional knowledge and medical technology but make relative requirement in terms of attitude and value. Our main targets of learning are patients and we will develop the philosophy of lifelong learning.
Raising Aspirations – Career Development
China Medical University Hospital needs to support the members and group learning in order to adopt effective strategies and urge individuals to continue learning under the hospital vision. Meanwhile the CMUH also needs to continue innovation and growth in its structure, function and culture. CMUH must value and voluntarily involve in the re-education curriculum of all disciplines or sub-disciplines, providing integrated new knowledge and technology to advocate for the upgrade in the medical quality of medical staff.
China Medical University (Main Campus) maintains balanced development in all disciplines with focus on cultivating talents and distributing the talents in all campuses. In response to the future development of medical system, CMUH already offers cultivation, preparation and employment of attending physicians, resident and management experts over the long run. The campuses of China Medical University system each features different definition and function and all help each other. Under the competitive and cooperative mechanism, the attending physicians engage in complete exchange system.
The learning experience of young physicians and the in-depth integration with top-notch research potential of China Medical University is another key objective in our development. We have eventually made progress toward this objective, using personalized training cultivation plan to accomplish the ultimate goals in cultivating “academic physician.”
Advancing Knowledge – Transforming Lives
CMUH should encourage young attending physicians, medical staff and administrators to pursue advanced study overseas, expanding the horizon of research fellow, making progress into the next stage of new creativity, and encouraging them to take annual leave system.
CMUH selects distinguished young physicians by understanding their aspiration and future career plan. The theme of advanced study shall cooperate with the CMUH key research development and medical development in general. Physicians will visit the relevant laboratories or medical centers in prestigious universities through team/relay method to make systematic cultivation. Advanced study will also advocate for the implementation of more effective research cooperation and medical exchange between senior physicians (advisors) and the medical centers in universities overseas.
Preparing For A Better Future
In midst of the biomedical technology development in the 21st century, China Medical University must develop a state-of-the-art and innovative integrated medical technology to enhance the medical quality and re-create the peak of prosperity. In the future, state-of-the-art care emphasizes on the integration of interdisciplinary team, using medical talent cultivation as the “root” and innovative research as the “source” to promote the comprehensive and holistic care concepts, thereby accomplishing the objectives in health maintenance through early prevention, diagnosis, effective treatment, and prognosis improvement.
The internationalization of China Medical University must rely on the state-of-the-art and innovative research outcome and through the knowledge acquisition, application, dissemination (namely education) to upgrade CMUH’s influence in the medical industry of Asia.
