Since TMU’s founding in 1960, it has gone through different stages: embryonic, pioneering, planting roots, expansion and sustainable development. Over this time frame TMU has advanced step by step, overcoming roadblocks and hurdles, building today’s eminent institution of one school and three hospitals, and decisively striding toward an ever better tomorrow.

TMU’s campus is located in the new urban center of the flourishing Xinyi District. Taipei 101 is just a short distance away. The university has nine colleges: the College of Medicine, College of Oral Medicine, College of Pharmacy, College of Nursing, College of Public Health and Nutrition, College of Medical Science and Technology, College of Humanities and Social Sciences, College of Biomedical Engineering, and College of Management. There are 12 departments and 23 graduate institutes at TMU, as well as the affiliated TMU Hospital, Wang Fang Medical Center and Shuang Ho Hospital, with a total of more than 3,000 beds. The total number of faculty and staff members surpasses 6,000, and there are around 5,800 students as well.

Over the past half-century TMU has educated many thousands of individuals of outstanding ability. Our alumni number over 38,000, and they are invariably among the elite in their fields. They are spread across the globe and work in health-care facilities, research institutes, government agencies and businesses. Possessing a deep sense of solidarity and a strong commitment to the development of their alma mater, they are TMU’s strongest supporters and our most treasured resource.
