In keeping with what appears to be a 'two-China' policy in cultivating its relationships with Taiwan and the gigantic People's Republic of China, the Republic of Palau's Ministry of Health has signed a memorandum of understanding in support of a joint medical internship program with Taiwan's E-Da Hospital/I-Shou University.

The MOU was signed by Republic of Palau Minister of Health Dr. Emais Roberts and E-Da Hospital/I-Shou University Superintendent Dr. Yuan Kun Tu.

The MOU outlines a pilot internship program that would allow medical students graduating from I-Shou University to complete their internship requirement at the Belau National Hospital. The medical interns will be practicing under the guidance of attending physicians from both Palau and E-Da Hospital. The attending physicians will rotate on a monthly, two-week basis and will provide expertise in different medical specialties. In addition to supervising the interns, the attending physicians will also offer medical consultation to patients in Palau.

E-Da Hospital and I-Shou University are located in the Dashu District of Kaohsiung, Republic of China—Taiwan. Both institutions are supported by the E United Group, a group that operates a number of businesses in Taiwa
