Program and Psychiatric Medicine Program
AIMS OF TRAINING
Clinical Psychology Program
1.This program is designed to equip students with knowledge and

the causes of abnormal behavior and mental disorders as well as
their impact on health and physical illness (psychopathology); (2)utilizing

scientific research on unsolved and important issues of the causality
of mental disorders, the interaction of mental illness and physical

procedures and methods. Moreover, discussion and suggestions extended
from the research results are obligated to be disseminated by the
graduate students in the peer-reviewed journals.

this program. Graduate students are anticipated to provide service,
including consultation, educational and training workshops and related
activities in an attempt to promote physical and psychological health.
Behavioral Neuroscience & Psychiatric
1.These two programs are designed to equip students with current
and edge-writing research skills and methodology in Behavioral Neuroscience
and Molecular genetics.
2.Graduate students are expected to develop an academic career to
employ the empirical science to investigate the cause and the underlying
mechanisms of mental diseases.
