Taipei Medical University (TMU) has been a leader in Taiwan's healthcare system for more than half a century. Around 6,100 students from over 45 countries are currently enrolled in TMU's 11 colleges.

TMU leads in many research areas including artificial intelligence in medicine, cell therapy and immunotherapy, clinical and translational cancer research, medical device development, neuroscience and thoracic medicine.

As one of the capital city region's largest healthcare systems, 3 of the 5 TMU’s affiliated hospitals – TMU Hospital, Wan Fang Medical Center, and Shuang-Ho Hospital – are accredited by Joint Commission International (JCI) to guarantee world-class standards and practices, providing ample opportunities for professional skills training and research.

TMU's education offers have expanded with the university's commitment to contributing to health service worldwide, accommodating interests of students from around the globe, and helping them to develop area expertise and service their own communities.

The permanent appointment of the university's medical teams to assist the Kingdom of Eswatini and the Marshall Islands provides a unique opportunity for service and education, as well as enhancing Taiwan's health diplomacy. TMU's commitment to internationalization has resulted in over 45,000 alumni working to improve healthcare systems in 70 countries.

As the university approaches its sixtieth anniversary, 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.
