Talents Nurturing

The Essential of Human Capital

Human resources are an important asset of the university. The talents are the most valuable resources and lifelines of the university’s development and progress as well as the key factor of the university’s long-term operation. A flexible and efficient application of human resources and talent development are critical and important tasks in the rapidly-changing and competitive educational industry due to the decreasing birth rate. In order to keep up with the high competitiveness and challenges of the new era and globalization, KMU links and combines the existing resources and bases effectively, in line with our shared values and future development objectives by carrying out an efficient talents and faculty education and training program actively. Moreover, KMU encourages each faculty to undertake domestic or abroad further education, training and seminar participation, and in so doing helps KMU to be more competitive by dedicating itself to long-term development and management of the human resources.

Enhancement of Training and Development

“Training and Development Program"(T & D Program) is one of the key methods for talent cultivation which has far-reaching influence on an organizational operation and development. Training and Development Program plays an important role in the development of individual’s ability, and further stimulates their potentials. The Training and Development programs are tailored based on each “talent’s individual needs and qualification" as well as KMU’s long-term development plan. The ultimate goals of the program are helping the university

  1. To create campus-wide shared values and culture
  2. To increase organizational learning ability
  3. To reinforce professional knowledge, work efficiency and service quality
  4. To create an organizational learning environment
  5. To drive professional, dynamic and creative HR services
  6. To foster managerial and administrative talent
  7. To strengthen professional ability and core competency

In addition to on-the-job training, KMU encourages faculty and staff to apply for further education (including degree taking at graduate schools), training and seminars participation and also sending faculty overseas to learn cutting-edge medical research, technology and skill. In 2011, there were 15 faculty members studying abroad such as Edinburgh University, MD Anderson Cancer Center and UC Davis etc. and 52 progressed to a masters degree and/or a PhD degree in local universities.

In face of the rapidly changing technological and intellectual currents as well as keen competition from striving for outstanding centers and excellent teaching universities, we firmly believe that constant improvement and learning are the only ways to keep ourselves in the lead.

KMU will further enhance a well-designed talent cultivation program, train and develop outstanding talents in the field of teaching, research, technology and management, in order to prepare for the future keen competition.

人才的培育

人才對組織發展的重要性

人才為學校重要資產、是推動學校成長與進步的命脈,亦是學校永續經營最寶貴的資源。如何有效的運用人力資本主要的關鍵在於人才的培育。面對全球化及少子化的壓力,靈活有效的運用人力資本及積極培育人才,成為刻不容緩的重要課題。為因應快速變遷的競爭與挑戰,本校在既有的資源與基礎上做有效的連結與整合,依據學校願景及未來發展方向,擬定有效的人才培育計畫,積極培育教學、研究及行政專業人才,鼓勵教職員國內外進修、訓練及研習,致力人力資源的永續發展,以厚實學校競爭力。

鼓勵進修研習、精進專業職能

「訓練與發展」是培育人才的主要方式之一,也是涵蓋面最廣,對組織影響最深遠的。在教職員工能力的開發及潛力的激發方面,訓練與發展確實有著重要的貢獻。本校依校務發展需求每學年規劃教職員工訓練計畫,除為型塑本校共同願景、校園文化、提昇組織學習能力、強化專業知能、工作效率與服務品質,建構組織學習、營造優質學習環境,帶動專業、活力與創新之人力資源服務、管理與發展機制之專業成長訓練、組織學習教育與管理核心能力發展之在職教育訓練課程外,也鼓勵教職員工申請與教學或專業有關之進修、訓練及研習,當然更鼓勵教職員工修讀研究所學位。另配合校務發展需要,校方亦主動派遣教師出國學習尖端先進醫療之研究或技術。

A Stronghold of Liberal Arts

Kaohsiung Medical University is geared towards training outstanding health professionals and places equal emphasis on sciences and liberal arts. The goal of our university is to develop a sense of medical ethics, artistic achievement, social concern, global perspectives, and a lifelong thirst for knowledge in our student. Our objective is the education of the whole person.

We are actively enhancing our liberal arts and medical humanities programs in order to achieve these goals. Our general education focuses on developing students’ core competences, which lay a solid foundation for “education of the whole person”. In addition, the university starts to enhance the dialogue among medical professions, technology and the humanities. The College of Arts and Social Sciences was established in August 2012 in the hope of educating health professionals in psychology, social works, and providing more liberal arts and social education to the students.

Apart from formal liberal arts courses, we also vigorously promote hidden curriculum and extension courses in order to boost learning. We create a campus permeated with liberal arts through holding various activities including lectures on the humanities, concerts, film festivals, art exhibits, on-campus public art, student art competitions, and the like. Many well-known international artists and groups have visited our school, includes violinist Cho-Liang Lin, the Vienna Boys Choir, the Cloud Gate Dance Group, and some famous film directors, to name a few. We want to stimulate students’ critical thinking by exposing students to a wide range of perspectives, soften reason with feeling, stimulate perceptiveness, and create campus-wide affinities with the arts, humanities, and culture.

We are continuing to striving towards an attractive, appealing campus. A coffee shop, a hanging garden, the Sports Dome, Schweitzer Boulevard, and the glass-tower library all serve to enrich the students’ academic life. These buildings and facilities have become the school’s major landmarks. Alumnus Dr. Chao Su-Fang donated several bronze sculptures to the university. One can engage in tranquil thought at any corner of the campus.

For half a century, the soothing south wind and swaying coconut palms and maple trees have accompanied the vigorous pursuit of study at Kaohsiung Medical University. We believe that we must teach students to be independent and competent individuals who can dedicate themselves to helping other people and contribute to the future society. We hope to cultivate health professionals who value ethics, are concerned about the society, heed their social responsibilities, possess an international outlook, are steeped in humanities, and are prepared to keep learning throughout their lives.

Introduction

Kaohsiung Medical University was founded as ‘Kaohsiung Medical College’ in 1954 by former Kaohsiung Mayor Frank C. Chuan, who donated land for the college site, and the first Doctor of Medical Science, Dr. Tu, Tsung-Ming. The College is located in Kaohsiung, the urban heartland of southern Taiwan. It was the first private institution of its kind in Taiwan.
At its beginning the college had only one department, Medicine. Presently it has been transformed into a university and includes 6 colleges, 21 departments and 5 independent graduate institutes. The university offers undergraduate , postgraduate study and research programmes ; many courses are available as both full-time and part-time modes. This change came about through strong, insightful, and dedicated leadership.

Responding to teachers and students’needs in clinical teaching, research and internship, and developing advanced medical science research, the Chung-Ho Memorial Hospital was thus established in 1957 as a teaching hospital, as well as a medical center for citizen’s health. In 1998, Kaohsiung Medical University was entrusted by the Kaohsiung City Government to manage Kaohsiung Municipal Hsiao-Kang Hospital, which combines medical treatment and concept of community health to develop as a regional teaching hospital. On the 6th of June in 2003, the opening of Frank C. Chen Memorial Building even set new milestone in Southern Taiwan as the hospital has the most advanced diagnostic equipment, along with the human-centered services. In addition, the respect for human life is another point that Kaohsiung Medical University emphasizes. On the 1st of January in 2010, Kaohsiung Medical University team greatly expanded its service territories as it officially took over the Kaohsiung Municipal Ta-Tung Hospital. One year after Kaohsiung Municipal Ta-Tung Hospital upgraded to a regional teaching hospital and it was highly recognized as a holistic-health-care community hospital. Kaohsiung Medical University has 4 tasks-education, research, health care and services for over 6 decades, which helped it to earn reputation being a top medical center for education and medical science in Southern Taiwan. Nevertheless, university was also approved by the Ministry of Education through overall Excellence Awards of Medium-term Development Plan.

Mr. Frank C. Chen was the 1st (1954-1966) and 3rd (1972-1993) Chairman of the Board of Trustees. Mr. Shou Nan Hung was the 2nd Chairman (1966-1972). The incumbent chairman Mr. James D. Chen has been our Chairman since 1993.

Prof. Tu, Tsung-Ming the college’s first president (1954-66), together with his equally high-minded and hard-working colleagues established the Kaohsiung Medical College in line with his philosophy of “Joyfully embracing learning, and prioritizing research”. Kaohsiung Medical College soon became known as southern Taiwan’s major center of medical science. In June of 1957 the college hospital was founded. The outpatient department was located on Liu He Road, and the wards and operating rooms were located in the second and third original buildings.

The second president, Dr. Wei, Huo-Yao (1966-67), established solid systems for education, personnel, finance, and management. Kaohsiung Medical College was thereby able to maintain stable growth.

The third president, Dr. Yang, Chen-Chung (1967-73), established the Center for Tropical Medicine and a 3-year nursing program and also planned the construction of the college hospital. When the hospital was completed in 1970 it was named Kaohsiung Medical College Chung-Ho Memorial Hospital.

The fourth president, Dr. Hsieh, Sian Chen (1973-91), expanded the college from 4 departments to 12 departments including 6 master’s programs and 3 PhD programs. During his terms, the General Technology Building, the student dormitories, an alumni house, as well as the Li-Shue and the Chi-Shih Buildings were constructed. In order to enhance international academic exchanges, he also established an affiliation between Kaohsiung Medical College and the University of Arkansas in the United States. Dr. Hsieh also established his philosophy that embodies the ideals of “resolutely striving for progress, encouraging learning, and benefiting the world”. This has laid the foundation for the future development of Kaohsiung Medical University.

The fifth president, Dr. Tsai, Jue-Hsiung (1991-2000), was the first alumnus to become the university president. During his term, the Medical Research Building and Underground Parking Lot were constructed. Furthermore, the university began operating the Hsiao Kang Hospital for the city. He relentlessly sought the continuous growth of the university and transformed Kaohsiung Medical College into Kaohsiung Medical University, which nowadays consists of six colleges. Based on his concept of “searching for the myth of life”, he was committed to crossing the boundaries of medicine and expanding related fields of science through increasing medical services as well as interactions between the society and those medical services.

The sixth president, Dr. Wang, Gwo-Jaw (2000-2006), continued the development of Kaohsiung Medical University by preserving, reforming, and innovating in order to “reshape ourselves into a first-rate university of international repute that is based on an enduring foundation that combines the best of the old and new“. He constructed the First Teaching Building, the student dormitories, as well as the library.

The fourth and fifth president, Dr. Yu, Hsin-Su, seeks to maintain the tradition of dedication to medical service, to give care and support to the underprivileged, to provide students with opportunities to participate in NGOs and other international humanitarian relief organizations, and to accomplish whole-person education. Furthermore, through restructuring and monitoring systems, he has established a core management unit and a core laboratory to manage diverse biological information and human resource data, proposed specific but comprehensive strategies for “Teaching Excellence, Innovative Research, Quality Humanism, and Social Caring” in order to lead Kaohsiung Medical University towards becoming Taiwan’s foremost medical center. He also started the construction of the 2nd Teaching and Research Building which was completed in 2012.

The incumbent president ,Dr. Liu Jing Kuang ,(July, 2012 to present) continues pursuing the value of life, that is to “maintain the human values of life, dignity, health, and welfare”. He sets the goal for the medical education and health care to pursue excellence, to continue the KMU spirit of helping people and contributing to the society. He promotes I Love KMU, which encompasses Innovation, Legislation, Knowledge, Mission and Universality. Based on the core values “respect life, pursue truth”, we further cultivate interdisciplinary health professionals who are able to integrate learning, knowledge, research and application into their specialty. Under Dr. Liu’s leadership, it is hoped that KMU moves towards becoming a globally competitive top university.

高雄醫學大學的前身係自西元1954年創校的高雄醫學院,由臺灣第一位醫學博士杜聰明教授創建全國第一所私立醫學院,為臺灣地區理念獨具,歷史最悠久的私立醫學院。創校以來,辦學宗旨是為致力於「醫學暨其相關醫療之教育、研究、服務」,迄今已培育3萬餘名醫事相關人才。

為因應全校師生臨床教學、研究和實習的需要,並發展醫學科學之高深研究,西元1957年成立「附設中和紀念醫院」,為一級教學醫院及醫學中心,並負有國民保健和醫療的重責。西元1998年,本校接受高雄市政府委託經營「高雄市立小港醫院」,結合醫療與社區健康營造並發展成為區域級教學醫院。西元2003年6月6日啟用的啟川大樓,為南臺灣醫學中心的新里程碑,院內有最新穎、最完善的診治儀器,以及人性化的服務品質,除提供優質的醫療外,更強調對生命的尊重。西元2010年1月1日高醫大團隊正式接手經營「高雄市立大同醫院」,再度擴大醫療服務領域,並於一年後即升格為區域教學醫院,成為社會高度認同的全人照護社區醫院。創校近一甲子,本校肩負教育、研究、醫療、服務等四大任務,已成為南臺灣首要的醫學科學教育及醫療重鎮,並屢獲教育部中程校務發展計畫各項指標全優的肯定。

草創初期,第一屆僅招收醫科一個學系。日升月恆,新世紀的高醫大在101學年度已擁有7個學院、21個學系、5個獨立研究所;包含20個學士班、3個二年制在職專班、1個學士後學位學程、27個碩士班、7個碩士在職專班、9個博士班及3個博士學位學程,於本校歷史傳承中創新發展,更層疊出新的歷史紀錄。

Sustainable Development

The founding of a university comes from ideals and efforts of many people. The evolution of a university is driven by the consolidated and strong will of more people. The development of a university must encompass the wisdom, talent and vision of the staff.

Kaohsiung Medical University (originally Kaohsiung Medical College) was established in 1954. It was the first private medical college as well as the first college founded on land donated by the private sector. It is a model for private education. Kaohsiung Medical University has played a distinguished role in medical history. It contributes primarily to the promotion of education and medicine in Southern Taiwan. It also inherited the legacy of Patrick Manson (born in Scotland in 1844), the father of Tropical Medicine, who had been devoted to medicine and education since his arrival in Kaohsiung, Taiwan in 1866.

The first three two-story grey buildings were built on a 107,000 m2 rice field. From its days of being surrounded by swaying rice fields and scattered cattle, with the continuous efforts by the staff and students, it has grown into a major research- and teaching-led university. Kaohsiung Medical University has provided a high-caliber education system with high-leveled professionalism and a wide range of the humanities. The mission of the University is to develop and promote the advancement of science; to undertake fundamental, strategic and applied research; to build up research on local subjects; to care for underprivileged groups; and to participate in local, regional, national and international medical services. In the undertaking of this significant mission of teaching, research and service, Kaohsiung Medical University has constantly expanded and fulfilled these duties.

Kaohsiung Medical University has been educating its medical professionals to meet the various social needs of its patients and ultimately improve the society as well. It has strengthened the local medical educational system and research, and therefore, promoted and improved the quality of medical service. It has become a major medical education center in Southern Taiwan as well as the educational hub of Kaohsiung-Pingtung Area. With the Kaohsiung Medical University’s over-fifty-year legacy, it will continue to widen access, open new frontiers, and strive towards even greater excellence. At Kaohsiung Medical University, people cheer for today’s achievements and strive for tomorrow’s ideals.
