In order to provide better and more comprehensive medical services, forward-looking neuroscience education, and promote the field of cross-field neuroscience research projects, the three affiliated hospitals of Taipei Medical University, including Taipei Medical University Hospital, Wanfang Hospital, and Shuang Ho Hospital, integrated the resources of neurosurgery, psychiatry, radiology, rehabilitation, and basic neuroscience research, and established the Taipei Neuroscience Institute in 2018.
We hope that through our efforts, it will promote the practice of clinical neuroscience, improve the quality of neuroscience clinical training and academic education, and strengthen the research and cooperation between basic neuroscience and clinical neuroscience.
The three affiliated hospitals of TMU are located in the Greater Taipei area, and they have relatively advantageous geographical advantages in terms of cross-campus integration. At present, there are hundreds of attending physicians engaged in critical neuroscience under the Taipei Medical University Healthcare system, which is quite large. After systematic and organizational integration, the development of the Taipei Medical system in neuroscience will be just around the corner.
Based on solid foundations, the Taipei Neuroscience Institute has 15 departments, including neuro-oncology, radiosurgery, cerebrovascular disease, neurorehabilitation, neurodegenerative diseases, spinal disorders, peripheral neuropathy, and so on. strengthen clinical integration, cooperate and discuss treatment policies, and provide patients with the highest quality as well as comprehensive medical services.
In terms of the integration of teaching and research, the Taipei Neuroscience Institute and Taipei Medical University work closely together. Clinicians and teachers on campus jointly formulate and design research plans, and conduct experimental plans with domestic and foreign academic institutions. At the same time, they promote industry-university cooperation and encourage each clinical team to hold domestic and foreign seminars or large-scale neuroscience seminars, establish neuroscience research institutes, promote joint freshman training courses, etc. In order to actively cultivate clinical and basic research talents, operate, cultivate, and take root in education.
The Taipei Neuroscience Institute hopes to become a pioneer in neuroscience in Taiwan. It is committed to providing high-quality and comprehensive neuroscience care services, integrating clinical and academic research, continuing to improve its profession, and becoming an internationally renowned medical center.
