The Graduate Institute of Clinical Medicine since August 2007 has offered a series of courses to train clinicians in research methods. To provide promising students with expertise in combining such skills with basic and clinical medicine, this institute established a master’s degree program curriculum in 2013 offered to non-medical graduates. This institute also offers a doctoral program taught in a systematic, flexible and integrated fashion to help students acquire a broad spectrum of academic skills. With these independent research abilities, graduates can improve the quality of medical care and promote social welfare.
