Respiratory therapy originated from United States of America. For over 10 years, School of Respiratory Therapy, Taipei Medical University (TMU) chooses 4 students annually to join a clerkship program for 4 weeks in Duke University Medical Center. During their stay, they have a chance to broaden their horizon and earn exclusive experience many yearn for.
The program between School of Respiratory Therapy, TMU and Duke University Hospital has been going on for 10 years. This year, TMU assistant professor Chun-Chun Hsu was invited to join the clerkship program of Department of Respiratory Therapy, Duke University Medical Center, learning how students are doing in the clerkship program. After that, they discussed how researches, clinical practice, and education operate from both school. Meanwhile, the possibility of international medical cooperation between TMU and Duke University Medical Center is something they’ll be looking forward to in the future.
