Started in late nineteenth century, the development of internal medicine in Taiwan greatly influenced our medical education, research, prevention and treatments of various illnesses, especially the eradication of certain infectious diseases. With the collaborative effects of the past and current chairmen and colleagues, the Department of Internal Medicine at the National Taiwan University Hospital (NTUH) has been leading the diagnostic and therapeutic interventions, educational system, and innovative researches in Taiwan. Inheriting their idealism, sense of mission, and endurance, we have created outstanding academia, and contributed significantly in the hospital’s commitment in excellence. .

There are currently 121 attending physicians, 194 residents contributed to the clinical therapies, educations, and researches at the department. There are 9 subspecialty divisions in our department, namely, cardiology, gastroenterology, nephrology, pulmonology, hematology and oncology, endocrinology, rheumatology, infectious diseases, and general medicine (including geriatric medicine). Specialized medical units such as the diabetic center, the heart failure center, and the sleep center are affiliated to the department, too. Our academic achievements received international recognitions.

Our extended medical education team includes all the attending physicians of the department, adjunct faculty from affiliated hospitals, and retired professors in medicine. Other than teaching our students with medical knowledge, clinical skills, professional attitude, humanism, and medical ethics, we pay special attentions to postgraduate general medicine and subspecialty training. Our goal is to train our medical students into well-rounded physicians.
In 1896, the Taipei Hospital was founded, which was the former NTUH. Internal medicine was one of the specialties at the time. Because of increment in faculty numbers between 1937 and 1939, the sepcialty was divided into 3 divisions, following the Japanese system. The first internal medicine division specialized in tropical medicine, infectious diseases, immunology and allergy, and cardiology, and hepatology. The second internal medicine division specialized in pulmonology, and tuberculosis, etc. The third internal medicine division specialized in digestive diseases. Each division had a division chair.

In 1950, the three divisions were intergraded into a single department with one chairman overseeing the administrative processes. However, the emergence of subspecialities brought in the fictional segregations of the department.
In 1993, the department was reformed into 8 divisions including cardiology, gastroenterology, nephrology, pulmonology, hematology and oncology, endocrinology, rheumatology, and infectious diseases. Each division was chaired by division head. In 1999, general medicine division was created to emphasize on patient-centered medical care and education and to avoid the limitations of over-specialized clinical practices.

Academic research has always been the driving force towards the growth of the department as many research results provided for aided clinical diagnostic and therapeutic progresses For example, we have characterized a novel gene, PGR-2, that may be a potential target for PPAR
The College of Medicine at National Taiwan University has been the pioneer in medical education in Taiwan. The Internal Medicine Department cooperated with the College of Medicine to teach medical students, to provide postgraduate medical education to resident physicians including subspecialty training, and to provide attending physicians trainings in holistic care. From the second to fourth medical college years, we employ small group discussions to teach students knowledge in basic sciences, fostering proper beliefs and attitudes towards the practice of medicine. We teach 5th and 6th year medical students with the concepts and skills of holistic care. We also teach them professionalism and medical ethics through case discussions. For the 7th year medical interns, we emphasize on their skills in routine medical practices including being on-call and executing medical orders through case discussions, bedside teachings, diagnostic and therapeutic skill demonstrations, team work training, and empathy-building. In 1998, we initiated the primary care system for medical students and interns. Recently, we incorporated the Objective Structured Clinical Examination (OSCE) in to our training programs. Our medical graduates will be trained in proficiency in independent thoughts and self-learning ability under the guidance of residents and attending physicians.

To deter from the over-emphasis of subspecialty care in internal medicine residency training, our department created an intergraded residency training program. We modified several subspecialty wards into general medical wards to give resident physicians more experiences in general medicine and primary care training. We also provide post graduate year (PGY) training for 1st year residents from other specialties. We assigned senior professors as mentors for residents to increase the opportunities for mutual communications, learning of clinical skills, and development of physician-patient relationships, humanitarian concepts, and medical ethics.
