In order to provide better and more comprehensive medical services, forward-looking neuromedicine education and promote the field of cross-field neuromedicine research projects. In 2018, the three affiliated hospitals of Taipei Medical University, including the Affiliated Hospital of Taipei Medical University, Wanfang Hospital, and Shuangho Hospital, integrated the resources of neurosurgery, psychiatry, radiology, rehabilitation and basic neuroscience research, and established Taipei Neuroscience Institute. It is hoped that through integration, it will promote the practice of clinical neuroscience, improve the quality of neuromedicine clinical training and academic education, and strengthen the research and cooperation between basic neuroscience and clinical neuromedicine.
The Taipei Medical affiliated hospital, Wanfang Hospital and Shuangho Hospital under the Taipei Medical System 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 neuromedicine under the Taipei Medical system, which is quite large. After systematic and organizational integration, the development of Taipei Medical system in neuromedicine will be just around the corner.
The Taipei Neuroscience Institute is built on a solid foundation. The institute will construct the most complete neuro-tumor, radiosurgery, cerebrovascular disease, neurological rehabilitation, degenerative neurological diseases, neuropsychological and cognitive functions, spine and peripheral nerves. 15 major departments including disease, pain control, pediatric nerves, neurotrauma and intensive care, dizziness and sleep disorders, headaches, and epilepsy, strengthen clinical integration, cooperate and discuss treatment policies, and provide patients with the highest quality and 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 holds domestic and foreign seminars or large-scale neuromedicine seminars, and establishes neuroscience research institutes, promotes 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 neuromedicine in Taiwan. It is committed to providing high-quality and comprehensive neuromedical care services, integrating clinical and academic research, continuing to improve its profession, and becoming an internationally renowned medical center.
