From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Shanghai Medical University is a top medical school in China, located in Shanghai municipality. It was merged into Fudan University in 2000 and becomes Fudan University Shanghai Medical College.


Founded in 1927, as National Fourth Zhongshan University Medical College, it was the earliest medical school in China established by a national (public) Chinese university, comprising part of Fourth Zhongshan University.

In 1928, Fourth Zhongshan University was renamed Jiangsu University, and in May of that year was again renamed to National Central University (which itself was to be renamed Nanjing University in 1949.)

National Central University Medical College became an independent institution in 1932 under the name of National Shanghai Medical College.

Because of the Second Sino-Japanese War, in 1937, it was moved to Kunming (Yunnan province), while in 1940, it was again relocated to Chongqing (Postal map spelling: Chungking). In 1946, after the end of the war, it returned to Shanghai.

In 1952 it was renamed Shanghai First Medical College. In 1959, it was designated by the central government as one of the sixteen national key institutions of higher learning in China. The present name, Shanghai Medical University, was given in 1985.

Shanghai Medical University has been put under consideration by PM&DC for recognition by the issuance of letter by Ministry of Health, Pakistan Letter No.F 3-51/2007-MER dated March 4th, 2008.[1]
