In a Nutshell

Medical schools and academic hospitals are highly complex organisations which are expected to deliver excellence in research, education and patient care. Balancing these demands with economic realities, changes in patient expectation, and rapid advances in medical technologies poses tremendous challenges, which academic leaders face on a daily basis. A further dimension is now being added by the internationalisation of not just medical research, but also medical training and patient flows.

With these challenges in mind, the committee has identified three conference tracks:

  • Track 1: Balancing Research, Training and Patient Care
  • Track 2: The Medical Curriculum of the 21st Century
  • Track 3: Reinventing the Academic Medical Career

By bringing together senior leaders from medical schools and other important thought leaders around these themes, the Summit provides a platform for the sharing of new ideas and best practices, as well as a unique opportunity for networking and dialogue. The aim of the Summit is to foster a shared understanding of the challenges and opportunities facing medical education and to begin articulating a practical vision for moving medical schools forward.

The successful management of the abovementioned areas is the key to a department’s long-term success, including its performance in the QS World Rankings by Subject.

Organised in collaboration with Kaohsiung Medical University, and held in Kaohsiung, Taiwan, the Summit is also the perfect venue to expand and strengthen your personal and institutional network with other departments and key industry researchers from Taiwan, Asia and beyond.
