    Taipei Medical University (TMU) has been a leader in Taiwan’s healthcare system since its establishment in 1960. Around 6,000 students from over 40 countries are currently enrolled in TMU’s 10 colleges. TMU established the 11th college, College of Interdisciplinary Studies in 2018, serving as a platform for innovation and entrepreneurship, and cultivates our next-generation biomedical talents with the sparks of an interdisciplinary approach. TMU leads in many research areas including cancer translational medicine, neuroscience, pulmonary medicine, AI in medicine, cell therapy & immunotherapy, and medical device development. With research strengths and results being recognized by the government and funding agencies, we have already secured several major research grants in these areas. Moreover, TMU has helped incubate 18 startups, and raised an Entrepreneurship Fund that offers support to accelerate the commercialization of research findings along with the establishment of TMU Biomed Accelerator. Finally, the imminent launch of TMU Biotech Park in Shuang Ho Campus will complete the ecosystem for TMU’s innovative entrepreneurship. TMU’s education offers have expanded with the university’s commitment contributing to health service worldwide, accommodating interests of students from around the globe to develop area expertise and service their own communities. TMU's commitment to internationalization has resulted in over 45,000 alumni working to improve healthcare systems around the world. Having welcomed its 60th anniversary in 2020, TMU continues to change and advance in global rankings that have placed it at the front of Taiwan's private universities in medicine and health science.

    The university is a few minutes’ walk from Taipei’s trendiest entertainment and shopping district; also nearby are the famous hiking trails on Four Beasts Mountain and Elephant Mountain. Reasonable living costs and safe streets make Taipei an ideal destination for students. The excellent public transit system includes a bicycle depot on campus and a subway line that is a few hundred yards away.

Sport lovers may visit our competition-size swimming pool with a large whirlpool spa, steam rooms and dry saunas, a weight room, table tennis room, and studio for yoga and other physical education classes. Support services for international students include several off-campus dormitories (shared apartment), free shuttle service between the campus and local transit stations, Chinese language training, a campus counseling center and well-furnished laboratories with bilingual training on the operation of all high-tech equipment.
