Fu Chan Wei
Fu Chan Wei received his medical degree from Kaohsiung Medical College, Kaohsiun, Taiwan, in 1972. He completed his surgical residency and received his training in plastic surgery at Chang Gung Memorial Hospitals. Subsequently, he completed two years of postgraduate training, first at the University of Toronto, Toronto, ON, Canada, as a microvascular surgery Fellow, then at the University of Louisville as a hand surgery Fellow. He returned to Taiwan in 1981 and in 1994 became the Chairman of the Department of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery at Chang Gung Memorial Hospital. He is currently a Professor of surgery and Dean of the College of Medicine of Chang Gung University, Taoyuan, Taiwan, and the Chairman of the Research and Development Committee of the Chang Gung System. During his tenure as Chief of the Department of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery at Chang Gung Memorial Hospital, the center developed into a leading microsurgical center focusing on head and neck, lower extremity, breast, and brachial plexus reconstructions. Through his relentless efforts to coordinate and lead this department, his vision of developing it into a world-renowned center in plastic surgery became a reality. Microsurgical reconstructions performed at this center are recognized for the extensive number of cases performed while maintaining a very high level of quality. This has been possible to a significant degree due to the presence of the microsurgical intensive care unit which he established and developed. He is an active member of 12 medical societies. He has been the president of several medical societies including the Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery Association, the Hand Surgery Society of China, and the International Microsurgical Society. Last year, he was the President of the World Society for Reconstructive Microsurgery.
