Established in September of 1982, the Department of Internal Medicine includes nine divisions: Pulmonary Medicine, Gastroenterolgy, Endocrinology & Metabolism, Nephrology, Hematology & Oncology, Immunology & Rheumatology, Infectious Disease, Section of Respiratory Therapy, and General Internal Medicine. The Division of Cardiology and Division of Neurology were moved from the Department of Internal Medicine and merged with the Cardiovascular Center and Neurology Center, respectively. In order to provide better clinical care, the Diabetes Care Center, Liver Disease Center, and Cancer Center were set up within relevant divisions. We have also integrated resources to provide refined medical team services such as the Diabetes Care Project, Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) Care Project, and Chronic Kidney Disease Care Project. We aim to provide the general public with comprehensive and thorough medical care, and encourage our divisions to develop individual specialized features.
