Medical technology is the core driving force of medical development, and a tool to explore the unknown world of human beings in the field of life and medicine; it can also provide the guarantee of medical technology and methods for the innovative development of clinical medicine and pharmacy. Medical technology is also an important bridge between basic science and clinical medicine, engineering discipline and medicine discipline, and also between universities and medical enterprises for achievement transformation. With the progress of science and technology, a large number of new technologies have been integrated into the medical discipline, making medical technology an independent first-level discipline under the medical directory. In 2018, the University was selected as one of the first five doctoral stations in medical technology in China, providing a high-level platform for medical technology students to continue their study after graduation from colleges. With the further promotion of Health China Strategy and two-centenary goal, higher requirements have been put forward for medicine and health professional talent teams, and medical technology has exactly complied with this requirement. It has trained high-level interdisciplinary talents with multi-disciplinary professional knowledge and adapting to the rapid development and highly cross integration of medicine. In the University, Medical Technology will make full use of existing high-quality teaching and scientific research resources, innovate the development of medical technology disciplines, and serve the overall needs of national medical and health strategy development.
The undergraduate program of Medical Technical in the University was set up early. The four disciplines, namely, Medical Imaging Technology, Medical Laboratory Technology, Optometry & Ophthalmology, and Rehabilitation Therapy, have always been in the forefront in the undergraduate education of the same programs in China, with a medical technology education and teaching system, a high-level medical technology teaching team with good ethics and spirit of reform and innovation, and stable and international or domestic leading scientific research direction and achievements; it enjoys high reputation in related fields in China. For the above four programs, the first-level disciplines of medical technology are given in the first year, regardless of direction of the program. From the second year, four programs of Medical Imaging Technology, Medical Laboratory Technology, Optometry & Ophthalmology and Rehabilitation Therapy will be set up.
