Mission: As a national teaching hospital, NTUH is shouldered with three major tasks: teaching, research and service. In terms of teaching, the hospital continues to collaborate with the university's curriculum to nurture talent in medicine and various specialties. In terms of research, resources are being integrated to establish core laboratories, which provide colleagues with the best research facilities and environment. In terms of service, all services are oriented towards and centered on patient safety; personalized care is emphasized, with a focus on medical quality and patient safety management in order to provide high quality and refined medical services. NTUH is also committed to promoting international cooperation, thereby gaining the experience and knowledge from the medical development of advanced countries, and thus enhancing the development of our country’s own medical care.

Vision: With an aging population, the future of our medicine will be built mainly around a holistic and personalized healthcare. We hope that, on the basis of humanistic care of better quality, we will be able to appropriately utilize electronic information and biotechnology to form the foundation of our management, and raise our service quality to the international standards.
