Introduction of Harvard Week
Since 2009, Kaohsiung Medical University (KMU) has been privileged to invite professors from Harvard University to perform the Team Teaching. The team teaching usually Is held for one week, and during this week students can take the world’s top academic classes at our campus. This is therefore called the “Harvard Week”.
In recent years, we have invited Nephrologists Dr. Dr. Julian L. Seifter and Dr. Vanesa Bijol, and hepatologists Dr. David Cohen and Dr. Raymond Chung. This program had brought mutual good impressions. The academic exchange between Kaohsiung Medical University and Harvard University goes on which promotes one of our overarching goals in medical education, facilitation of students’ global perspectives.
This year, we invited Orthopedic Surgeons Dr. Christopher DiGiovanni and Dr. Jesse Jupiter from Harvard University to hold the “Harvard week” for the Musculoskeletal System Team Teaching during September 30th 2019 to October 4th 2019.
