The department was established in 2002. It is the first medical informatics department in Taiwan, R.O.C. Our mission is to promote the application of information technology to healthcare so that both the quality and efficiency of healthcare may be improved. Typical teaching and research areas include bioinformatics, medical information processing, healthcare information systems, technology for healthcare, and computer-aided diagnosis. We teach undergraduate students with preferences on either technology or medical science. The Master program was established since 2004, and the Ph.D. program starts since 2006 (a program in the institute of medical sciences). To enhance undergraduate studentsˇ¦ skills in specialized domains, the undergraduate program is split to two divisions since 2006: medical informatics technology and bioinformatics.
