The establishment of Institute of Clinical Medicine will be benefit to integrate the resource between the university and the hospital. Since the graduated students from Kaohsiung Medical University chose to serve in other university and hospital, it diminishes the competency of our university and makes the lost of efforts on the clinical education. In the era of great progression on medical technology, the human resource of medicine in the southern Taiwan is seriously insufficient. The establishment of Institute of Clinical Medicine well also elevates the competence of our university and the local area. Further, we can train the high level researcher in medicine to make the ability of researchers in our country equal to the international level. The unique of our university is based on the clinical medicine. By combining with basic research can elevate both the level of clinical medicine and basic research and apply to the clinical care which could facilitate the qualities of clinical service.
The aim and the feature of Institute of Clinical Medicine is training the doctors could not only devote into traditional clinical service but also have the abilities in modern bio-medicine. Except of molecular biology, cellular biology and molecular diagnosis methods, the point of teaching is focusing on the familiarity of various experimental techniques, including cell culture, gene manipulation, DNA and RNA extraction, protein extraction, flowcytometry, etc. Furthermore, to intensify the independent research abilities that students could translate clinical problems into basic medicine questions and make innovations and improvements in diagnosis and therapeutic methods. So that we can rear up the qualified doctors which we called “physician scientist”. The difference between this department and the others is that we emphasis on building the physician scientist, and that is why we do not recruit the graduates from other department. Specifically, we train the physician scientist who have both clinical and basic research abilities. They who also have originality to solve the difficulties in med will have contribution to the human’s health.
