Equanimity Building 大捨樓

Equanimity Building

Equanimity Building is where the Silent Mentor Program (anatomy program) takes place. When Tzu Chi volunteers are healthy, they are our students’ away-from-home parents; later, when they reach the end of life, they donate their bodies to our medical school as ‘silent mentors’. Much gratitude should be given to our senior and experienced doctors who show great devotion and patience to teach our students surgical procedures in great detail. One day when these students stand by a patient’s bedside, they will exercise not only their professional skills; they will also do whatever they can to heal their patients. Nowadays, our silent mentors have become the model for many medical schools around the world.
