WHY this program
at Chula


Strong determination to produce highly-qualified global doctors

The Faculty of Medicine, Chulalongkorn University has the determination to become the national leader in medical education, to produce highly-qualified global doctors who take up leadership roles in the medical profession, and give Thailand the international recognition in providing world class healthcare.

The ambition of the CU-MEDi medical program is to give opportunity for bachelor’s graduates to expand their potential from whichever field their undergraduate degree may be; whether science, social science, or arts, if they are interested in medicine.

We want to see the students bring their own individual talents to the medical field. We aim to create, not only future clinicians, but also leaders in other medical-related careers such as bioengineering, medical research or healthcare management.


International Experience

CU-MEDi has strong partnerships with international institutes in the USA and the UK that provide students with excellent opportunities to enroll in elective courses abroad during their externship years in which they be studying and practicing their clinical skills abroad and participating in collaborative international research. This experience will help in the students’ development as global doctors as they will gain knowledge from international speakers, and they will acquire first-hand experience in how different healthcare systems work.

We encourage and support students to attend and present their work at international forums and to take international exams such as the United States Medical Licensing Examination (USMLE). They will be well-prepared for an international career abroad should they choose that career path.


Innovation and Technology

In the 21st century, when technology is developing faster than ever before, we want to position students at the forefront of medical innovation. To develop innovation skills, students are required to participate in special research projects according to their own interests, and they will receive support from their mentors who have access to the latest projects in their field through collaborations with local and international institutes.

CU-MEDi will employ the latest technologies in medical education, through means such as online learning, telemedicine, machine learning, artificial intelligence, and simulation training. The program provides an adult-learning environment, inspiring creative students who will become doctors that bring innovative ideas to whichever field they choose to enter upon graduation.



There is a growing number of multi-talented students who are skilled in more than one field of study. The mission of CU-MEDi is to help students realize their full potential. We want to see students bring their own individual talents to the medical field, and we aim to create not only future clinicians but also leaders in other medical-related careers such as bioengineering, medical research, or healthcare management. Mentors will help identify and support students’ individual talents from the beginning and see how they may apply them to the medical field.


Leadership for change

CU-MEDi emphasizes the development of students’ leadership skills. Students will receive leadership training at the beginning of the program, and they will have the opportunity to put those skills to use throughout their courses in various group projects and learning methods such as team-based learning and group discussions.

Career Opportunities


After graduation, students will receive a Doctor of Medicine degree (M.D.), but they can customize their career paths according to their own interests. If they would like to pursue further clinical education, they may apply for residency through either the Thai or international program. Other possible career choices include physician-scientists, medical researchers, healthcare leaders, or physician-engineers.


The international emphasis of this program provides a platform for students to complete additional training abroad after graduation. We encourage and support students to take international exams such as the United States Medical Licensing Examination (USMLE). Students have the opportunity to gain clinical experience abroad through the externship phase of the program and through student-selected components (SSCs) with our partner institutions in the USA and the UK.
