编者按：2016年7月30日，第一届泛亚洲胸外科合作论坛在北京召开。本次会议由 AME 出版社和 Medtronic 创新外科联合举办，邀请了来自亚洲各国十余位知名胸外科专家及国内近百位胸外科专家参加。每位讲者从所在国家/地区的胸外科现状讲起，来共同探讨亚洲胸外科合作的无限前景。借此机会，小编邀请了台湾大学医学院附属医院的李章铭教授，做了一个简短采访。
Would you kindly introduce yourself to our audiences?
Did you always know you wanted to become a surgeon, or is that something that happened along the way?
What’s the greatest challenge of the Pan-Asian cooperation in the future?
What’s your view on Pan-Asian cooperation in thoracic surgery?
Except from the benefits like the database or a better training system for the young generation, could you share your expectation on the new society/future cooperation around Asia?
