National Yang Ming University is a national research university in Taiwan, known for its achievements in the study of medicine, life sciences, biotechnology. The university owes its name to the Taiwanese philosopher and statesman Wang Yang.

Unlike classical pedagogical traditions, the university adheres to progressive methods and seeks to create conditions for conscious learning by students, their interest and motivation. Practical education is of great importance. The university offers ample opportunities for interdisciplinary studying, harmoniously combining education with medicine.

The university was founded in 1975 as a medical college with first-class education of specialists in the field of healthcare and medicine. For more than forty years of history, the university has undergone significant development: by 2005, it had become an educational institution with five faculties - medical, dental, medical technology and biomedical engineering, nursing, and a teacher studying college. In addition, a hospital has appeared at the university, in which students can get real hands-on experience during their educational programs.

Today, Taiwan University is not only an educational center with quality medical programs, but also a major research center. The infrastructure of the university includes 15 research institutions dealing with issues in the field of cell and molecular biology, biomedical engineering, bioinformatics, brain research and many others.

The rector of the university, Lian Kung-I, is an outstanding scientist who received the prestigious international Rema Lapouse Award. In 2020, Taiwan's Ministry of Education confirmed the university's merger with National Chiao Tung University, the institution's traditionally strong areas of business, management, engineering and programming. So National Yang Ming University is increasingly becoming a multidisciplinary university, where you can get quality education not only in the field of medicine.
