bulletAbout Us


       Physical therapy professionals enhance and protect peoples' health, promote the recovery of persons suffering from illnesses and injuries, and enable recovering patients to function to the fullest possible extent. Established in 1994, this department employs a small class format to better train clinical physical therapists with professional knowledge of basic medicine and physical therapy, thereby raising the standards of the profession. Our instructional approach places balanced emphasis on theory and practical applications. We provide students with opportunities to engage in well-rounded learning by recruiting outstanding specialists with clinical experience to serve as our faculty.

       We established our Graduate Institute of Rehabilitation Sciences in 2001 in order to promote broad-based research in the fields of physical therapy and rehabilitation, while training high-level researchers and technicians in these areas. Besides training outstanding physical therapy and rehabilitation professionals and raising the current and future quality of rehabilitation care, we are also encouraging academic research in many aspects of physical therapy and rehabilitation. We are training personnel with integrated engineering, basic science, and clinical medical knowledge in order to enhance their suitability with regard to clinical rehabilitation and basic research.

       Our graduates have the option of engaging in clinical physical therapy work, continuing their education, or performing research and teaching. In response to the present trend towards educational diversification, we plan to expand our students' involvement in medical and educational roles. As Taiwan's population ages and chronic illness becomes more common, there will be an increasing need for physical therapists, ensuring that the profession enjoys ample room for future development.

        In order to expand our long-term care research and create an educational environment fostering concern for humanity, the long-term care organization of Chang Gung Rehabilitation Hospital and the Healthy Living Culture Village will provide basic and clinical research subjects and a clinical practice environment for long-term care of the elderly and those with chronic conditions. This will enable us to bring about a closer fusion of theory and practice. WE hope to instill concern for humanity and high ethical standards in our students through a high-minded and rigorous education approach.
