The School emphasizes its laboratory techniques training in the field of Laboratory Medicine and Biotechnology. All laboratories are well equipped and offer students outstanding opportunities for clinical laboratory practice and for research. Courses of freshman, sophomore and junior students are offered at the main campus and medicalcollege. In conjunction with the Department of Laboratory Medicine, National Taiwan University Hospital the clinical laboratory practice for senior students is offered at their clinical laboratories. Since 2002, a course for freshman "introduction of Medical Technology" was offered in a form of "Problem-Based Learning" to motivate active learning of the students.
