Delegation from Taiwan

The department hosted a visit this week from a delegation from Taiwan, led by Professor Chung, Medical Superintendent of Taipei City Hospital. The delegation met a number of academics and clinicians from Imperial College and the Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust. The visit followed on from a reciprocal visit to Taiwan by members of the department. Amongst the areas discussed were how to strengthen the role of primary care in a health system; the use of new technology in healthcare; and methods for improving the quality, efficiency and accessibility of health services.

Medics at Imperial College Business School

A new student club formed to act as a networking portal for doctors enrolled onto the various MSc, MBA courses at the Business School and the MPH Programme. It will provide a common ground for medics looking to diversify their career and take-up challenging roles both inside and outside of clinical medicine. We plan to invite alumni and other guest speakers to the business school who were in our position in the previous years to share their experiences and also invite companies working in the healthcare sector for campus presentations and networking sessions. In the long term, it will become the connecting link between the business school and the medical profession by organizing talks to discuss issues that matter the most to healthcare. Watch-out for the dates and do join us or email any suggestions you may have to suraj.bassi08 at or ayodele.kazeem08 at
