The Asia Collaborative for Medical Education (ACME) 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, 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.
To help pursue and realize these goals, ACME founded two Centers of Excellence in Research Ethics Training. The Center for Innovation in Ethics is hosted at Stanford University, in the US, 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.
