One of Taiwanese leading universities, Taipei Medical University (TMU), organised a roadshow and international seminar at UGM library on Friday (2/11).
Several TMU professors socialised matters related to TMU’s education programmes and opened opportunities for students and alumni of UGM to study at masters or doctoral levels in Taiwan.
“At TMU there are several alumni from UGM and they show a very good academic performance. Hence, we came here to interview students and alumni that want to study further at TMU,” said Prof. Chen, TMU representative.
Chen said the cooperation between TMU and UGM had lasted for several years and had resulted in some productive projects such as student exchange, clinical training, and other programmes.
He hoped the TMU’s delegation visit to UGM could strengthen the relations between both universities and open more opportunities for collaborations in the future.
“We are very happy to be able to visit UGM. I hope many UGM students would pursue their studies at TMU, and hopefully in the future more joint projects between UGM and TMU would emerge,” he said.
TMU that was established in 1960 has five hospitals and a number of centres of studies that conduct studies and research in health, science and technology, and social disciplines.
UGM Director of Partnership, Alumni, and International Affairs, Dr. Danang Sri Hadmoko, said the cooperation between UGM and TMU, particularly in health discipline, could produce studies and innovations that are beneficial for systems improvement and healthcare in Indonesia.
“Health issues are very crucial in Indonesia. Currently, there are a number of studies being made related to the handling of non-communicable diseases and healthcare security. I believe TMU can give more insight on these issues to us,” said Danang.
