Department introduction

Department introduction
Actualize the dream of becoming a professional clinical pathologist to lead the future biological industries
Department of Biomedical Laboratory Science
Clinical pathologists extract samples from the blood, urine, fluid, and tissues of patient in the fields of microbiology, clinical chemistry, physiology, hematology, and others to perform medical tests for analysis. As professional medical experts, they perform other responsibilities related to clinical pathological tests toprevent, diagnoseandtreatdiseases.


  • To educate clinical pathologists in microbiology as future professional experts in medical sciences for the latest medical trend, the Department of Biomedical Laboratory Science conducts a variety of domestic and international academic and research activities through specializing education program in microbiology and in-campus clinical test centers. Also, the Department is committed in fostering practical andconvergent professionals in biology to lead the hi-tech laboratory medicine in the 21st century through the exchangeswith the family firms in the campus.
