Dr. Kaz Soon with visitors from Taiwan

Our collaborative ventures with Taiwan were established 35 years ago, beginning with the regular hosting of ophthalmology post-residency graduates from National Taiwan University (NTU), Chang Gung Memorial Hospital, and Veterans' General Hospital. In 2012, we signed a formal memorandum of understanding with NTU, the flagship medical training hospital of Taiwan. Since then, we have expanded this exchange to faculty, residents, and medical students, not only in ophthalmology but also in other departments. Our collaboration consists of clinical training, research collaboration, and lectureships.
