Organisation profile

Rapid economic and industrial development during the past decades has resulted in a severe deterioration of environmental qualities in Taiwan. Consequently, adverse health effects implicated by exposures to these environmental pollutions are among top of public concerns. In addition, southern Taiwan has long inherited some very unique environmental and occupational exposures rarely seen in other parts of the country. It makes it even more imperative and meaningful for our Department, essentially the most comprehensive one in southern Taiwan in terms of its areas of technical expertise for investigating issues of environmental and occupational health, to commit ourselves in educating and training of professionals in this regard. Established in 1987, this Department began offering Master degree program in 1995, and Doctoral program in 2002. For a better-focused curriculum, four divisions were designed accordingly, including Industrial Hygiene and Environmental Exposure Assessment, Environmental and Occupational Medicine, Epidemiology and Biostatistics, Environmental Toxicology and Chemical Analysis. Physicians and those with clinical backgrounds are also encouraged to register into the division of Environmental and Occupational Medicine. Our department has a total of 10 faculty members and over 50 graduate students. We are active both in teaching and research. We offered more than 30 courses to comply with our student’s interests. In research, more than $200 million of grant money was brought in since 1995. Finally, our alumni are active in a variety of fields such as academics, government agency, and industry.
