The Tzu Chi University (Chinese慈济 大学) is a private university in Hualien in the Republic of China ( Taiwan).


The university was founded in 1994 as " Tzu Chi College of Medicine " by Dharma Master Cheng Yen, founder of Tzu Chi Foundation. In 2000 it was renamed to Tzu Chi University.

Master Cheng Yen has dedicated her life to the needy, because she understands illness as the root of the pain and the mother of poverty. Therefore, they justified the construction of a hospital, which is affiliated to the Faculty of Medicine today.

The Tzu Chi University was built in eastern Taiwan to enhance the medical care and educational opportunities in the region. In addition, the university is to encourage students to get involved and help others.

Medical Education

By Master Cheng Yen 's teachings, many of the inhabitants of Taiwan 's agree now ready to face after the death of her body to the University Forschungezwecken available. As Cheng Yen stated in a speech that the donors know that the medical students several cuts on the bodies test thus learn more about the human anatomy. However, they also know that " students can try out several hundred wrong cuts on my body, but when they finish their training, they will do on a real patient with a false cut more. " Donors are called by the medical students also "silent mentors ".

Because many Taiwanese make their body after death the medical faculty available, a corpse comes to four students at other universities while a corpse to 200 students come. Not only reason that the Tzu Chi University one of the most prestigious universities in the country.
