Asia Collaborative for Medical Education (ACME)
The Asia Collaborative for Medical Education is a consortium of leading medical schools and healthcare institutions, dedicated to furthering the training of healthcare professionals in the Asia-Pacific region. This international collaboration brings together influential partners from such countries as the US, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Singapore, Thailand, and Vietnam. Through its programs, ACME seeks to meet medical and health-care related training demands in the region’s developing countries, and ultimately establish sustainable local capacity to train emerging leaders in these fields.
Led by Dr. C. Jason Wang, Professor Mildred Cho, and their colleagues in Asia, ACME founded two Centers of Excellence in Research Ethics Training. The Center for Innovation in Ethics is hosted at Stanford University, and the Center for Humanism, Professionalism, and Social Justice is hosted at the Koo Foundation Sun Yat-Sen Cancer Center/National Yang-Ming University, in Taiwan. This work is funded by the NIH Fogarty International Center to train scholars from developing countries in research methods and research ethics.
