KMU invited outstanding alumnus Professor Shih-Ann Chen, to give a speech at his alma mater university on the 28th of March 2023. Professor Chen who completed his internship and received his MD from KMU is an internationally renowned authority in the investigation of the pathophysiology of focal atrial tachycardia, thoracic veins atrial fibrillation initiators, and ablation techniques. He is one of the two pioneers in the world working on catheter ablation of atrial fibrillation called the "Taipei Approach" by the Heart Rhythm Society (HRS).

In 2021, Professor Chen was appointed the superintendent of the Taichung Veterans General Hospital where he quickly improved the performance of the hospital, leading it to become the only hospital in Taiwan to be listed in the "Newsweek 2023 World's Best Smart Hospitals". With the title of "Sharing the Experience of Building an Excellent Team", Professor Chen shared the innovative changes he made in hospital operations after taking over as the hospital’s superintendent.
