Distinctive Features of Teaching  

 Heart Valley

 The Heart Valley is a winter camp held for elementary students in the remote area. Freshmen and sophomores in med school are in charge of this camp. We launch a variety of fun activities including performances, games, lectures, and campfire night. After all the discussions, arrangements, rehearsals, and of course the camp itself, we become familiar to each other and get strongly bonded. The spirit of teamwork is taught and the pleasure of friendship is tasted.



 Community medicine

Residents in Taiwan visit the general hospital in a quite casual manner. They may visit either because of severe injuries, severe disease, or minor sickness. The large number of patients stresses the doctor and shortens the time of inquiry for time is limited and patients are waiting. Moreover, this sometimes leads to the shortage of beds, which has long been a problem here in Taiwan.


In terms of solving this problem, community medicine plays a crucial role. The community medical center provides residents with easier access to medical resources, decreases medical expenses, and enables the doctor to have a more detailed inquiry of patient history, which satisfies both doctors and patients.


To arouse the awareness of community medicine and primary care in Taiwan, it is important to nurture future doctors who value it. Due to this reason, we mapped out a two-week clerkship course in different community medical centers for fifth graders to acquaint with community medicine and learn the importance of it. Land seed Hospital in Tao-Yuan, Tung’s’ Taichung Metro Harbor Hospital, Ditmanson Medical Foundation Chia-Yi Christian Hospital, Chi Mei Hospital, E-Da Hospital, An Tai medical care cooperation An Tai Tein-Sheng Memorial Hospital are the community hospitals we collaborate with.
