NCKU College of Medicine International Summer School ran from July 17 to July 28, 2023, featuring a two-week intensive program across NCKU's Cheng-Hsing Campus, Tainan, and Chiayi. The program attracted 30 students from 9 countries and 10 universities, who explored the unique charm of traditional Chinese medicine and its applications in different cultures.


To welcome international students from Indonesia, the USA, Thailand, Vietnam, Hong Kong, Malaysia, Japan, and Lithuania, a warm welcome ceremony was held on July 17 at the 4th-floor auditorium of the College of Medicine. Nearly half of the students expressed that it was their first visit to Taiwan and gradually built memories of Taiwan's summer through seasonal fruits like mangoes, litchis, and watermelons.


Dean Yan-Shen Shan expressed gratitude for the third-year organization of the summer intensive program, focusing on Chinese medicine, thanks to the efforts of Professor Nai-Ying Ko. A series of exciting courses and cultural experiences were meticulously planned, ensuring a fulfilling experience for all participants.


Vice Dean Ko highlighted the rich two-week program, covering the history of Chinese medicine, commonly used herbs, and healthcare systems worldwide. Additionally, various engaging activities were arranged, including acupuncture and cupping, qigong, calligraphy, visits to traditional Chinese medicine clinics and the Kaiser Pharmaceutical Co., as well as excursions to  the Southern Branch of the National Palace Museum in Chiayi and exploring Tainan. These activities aimed to provide foreign participants with deeper insights into Tainan and Taiwan's culture.


The 2023 NCKU College of Medicine International Summer School introduced the "Chinese Medicine and Crossculture Biomedical Ethics'' intensive course, offering a comprehensive overview of Chinese medicine and cross-cultural understanding. With professional lectures, hands-on experiences, internships, and visits, students from diverse backgrounds gained a better understanding of Taiwanese culture and international exchanges. The course featured lectures by experts in Chinese medicine, humanities, social medicine, and public health, including Vice Dean Nai-Ying Ko, Professor Hsiu-Yun Wang from the Department of Medical Humanities and Social Medicine, Associate Professor Mei-Ling Tsai from the Department of Physiology, and the team of Dr. Yu-Pei Chen, Director of Traditional Chinese Medicine at the Tainan Hospital of the Ministry of Health and Welfare, and Dr. Shu-Yun Huang, Chief Physician of the Traditional Chinese Medicine Department at SinLau Hospital, among others.


In addition to Taiwanese scholars, the program also welcomed Professor Ryosuke Ohniwa from Tsukuba University in Japan. The College of Medicine stated, "These lecturers bring rich experience and will provide the most complete and professional content to help students broaden their horizons and stimulate their interest in the research, application, and cultural aspects of Chinese medicine." The goal is to deepen students' understanding of the importance of Chinese medicine in Taiwanese society and experience the unique charm of Chinese medicine culture through practical activities, applying their learning outcomes to daily life.

NCKU's College of Medicine introduced the "Chinese Medicine and Cross Culture Biomedical Ethics" course during its NCKU International Summer School, inviting foreign students to engage in cross-cultural learning.

The program includes visits to Traditional Chinese Medicine clinics and the Kaiser Pharmaceutical Co., as well as tours of the Southern Branch of the National Palace Museum in Chiayi and exploration of Tainan City.
