Organisation profile

1. Department of Physiology, College of Medicine, was established in 1983, and the own Master program started in 1990, which is in concordance with the development of an integrated Doctoral program offered by Basic Medical Sciences. 2. There are 11 full-time tenure-track faculty members and 3 adjunct ones in the Department. The fields of research are extensive, including translational medicine, cancer biology, neuroscience, and cardiovascular system….etc. On a nation-wide basis, the academic performance in this Department is outstanding. For example, there are more than NTD $20 million research funding per year in the past 3 years, and total SCI-paper count has exceeded 100 in the past 5 years. 3. In the aspect of teaching, we are moving toward a reform of teaching methods, including small-group/interactive teaching, problem, case or team based learning, Moodle and MOOCs E-learning. 4. In the aspect of internalization goal, several international scholars/students have visited this Department for sabbatical leaves or interns. In addition, we encourage students to present in English in the seminar and courses and attend international conferences. There are several courses using English teaching and progress reports in English.
