中國醫藥大學創立於1958年，1980年設立附設醫院，中國醫藥大學醫療體系是深受民眾信賴的醫療重鎮與健康堡壘，不斷地持續進步並延伸服務觸角，建立民眾所需的醫療健康體系，目前除了台中附設總院，增建7 棟醫療大樓以外，也擴及有5 家體系醫院及多家支援合作機構。因應研究教學服務需求，學校購置舊水湳機場部分土地，規劃建立嶄新的校園，已於3年前將校本部遷到水湳校區，今年本校醫學系是第60屆(M60)醫學生畢業，剛好是一甲子的歲月，也是學會第一次在我們新校區舉辦，更有其特別的意義。
On behalf of the local organizing committee for the 115th Annual Congress of the Taiwan Society of Otorhinolaryngology Head and Neck Surgery, I appreciate and express our great honor and pleasure to invite you to this 115th meeting, to be held in China Medical University (CMU), Shui-Nan, Taichung, on December 16(Sat)-17(Sun), 2023.
It has been 14 years since the last time CMU organized the 87th Annual Congress. Due to the COVID-19, we have experienced significant changes in the healthcare system, social interactions and interpersonal relationships these years. Fortunately, the situation has got improved since this May. We believe that everyone is looking forward to face-to-face knowledge sharing, academic discussions, and mutual friendship exchanging. We would like to thank the Society for giving us this opportunity to organize the 115th congress. Our team has been engaged to prepare it since the end of last year, hoping to provide a perfect academic feast for our members and offer a platform for exchanging new knowledge and friendships.
CMU was founded in 1958, and its affiliated hospital, CMUH, was established in 1980. CMUH is now a trusted and well-known medical center, continuously progressing and extending its service to meet the public healthcare needs. Currently, in addition to the Taichung main hospital, which has expanded to seven major buildings, there are also five affiliated hospitals and several collaborative medical institutes. In response to the needs of research, teaching, and medical service, CMU has acquired part of the former Shui-Nan Airport and constructed a brand-new campus. The main CMU campus was relocated to the Shui-Nan new campus three years ago. This year, CMU is celebrating the graduation of its 60th batch (M60) of medical students. Therefore, 2023 is the "sexagenary cycle" or "60-year cycle” graduate year for the medical student in CMU. It is also the first time that our Society is holding an annual congress in our new campus, making this conference even more meaningful and special.
This 115th congress is expected to invite experts from different fields, both domestic and international, to deliver keynote speeches, featured symposiums, special lectures, and continuing education courses, etc. These will include the special fields about otology, rhinology, laryngology, head and neck surgery, audiology, sleep medicine, craniofacial surgery, tinnitus, and pediatric otolaryngology, etc. We hope that through this congress, our members can share and discuss the latest academic and research achievements, thus inspiring and promoting our academic vision and participation on an international level. At the same time, we will arrange a series lectures about primary health care, in order to enhance and strengthen the capabilities and influence of our Society in the Taiwan healthcare system.
Finally, we would like to express our gratitude to the Board for allowing the Department of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery at CMUH to host the 115th congress. We hope that all the respected colleagues, experts, and friends can enjoy this scholarly and friendly feast and be filled with academic sharing and spiritual exchange.
We look forward to welcoming you in December 2023 to Taichung.
With kindest regards,
