            Since its establishment 120 years ago in 1888 as the first medical school in Thailand, Mahidol University has continuously strived for educational excellence and has made major contributions to society in terms of creating knowledge and providing healthcare services. Today, Mahidol University is among the best comprehensive universities in Thailand and was ranked as the top university for both research and teaching by the Thai Commission on Higher Education in 2005.

            When our team assumed leadership of Mahidol University in December 2007, we established a vision for the University to develop into a world class university and be one of the top 100 universities of the world within the next 4 years. To realize this vision, we are determined to create an environment and atmosphere that inspires learning, develops talents, and nurtures leaders. We will also spearhead research, and encourage breakthrough innovations, especially those with potential applications in industry. Strong emphasis is also placed on international collaboration in research and education for modernizing and globalizing the university. Equally important is our commitment to society to improve healthcare services in our university hospitals and to provide health surveillance which responds to the needs of the Thai people.

            With these responsibilities in mind, we will not only continue to vigorously conduct teaching and research in the fields of medicine, science, technology, environment, social studies, liberal arts, religious studies, music and sport science, but we will also promote and provide guidance on ethics and integrity. Mahidol University is a truly distinguished university with diverse academic disciplines and high-caliber personnel, providing the highest quality education. With our commitment to be “The Wisdom of the Land”, Mahidol University is dedicated to providing the greatest benefits for the global community.

            To achieve these goals, we have revised our organizational structure, rules and regulations to be more efficient and flexible to respond promptly to the new challenges of becoming an autonomous University.

            As President of Mahidol University, I am proud to lead this outstanding and forward-moving institution.

            Welcome to Mahidol University.
