China Medical University (CMU) was established as China Medical College on 6 June 1958 and transformed itself into China Medical University in 2003. It was the first academic institution in Taiwan to offer Chinese medicine and pharmacy programmes. The university has steadily grown to its present position as one of the foremost medical universities in Taiwan. The university has two major campuses, Taichung (including Wuchuan and Ankang) and Beigang.
Located at the centre of Taichung City, CMU includes seven colleges where western medicine, Chinese medicine, pharmacy (including Chinese herbs), health care (including nursing), life sciences, management, and public health educational, research and practice programmes are offered. Interdisciplinary courses are also available as the basis for students to integrate their learning experiences. With CMU’s top ranked laboratories, a library and reference centre, two comprehensive teaching hospitals, and a strong staff commitment to students, our university provides a total approach to medical education in a caring, nurturing and well-equipped environment.
