School introduction

In 1958, China Medical University (CMU) was established by three traditional Chinese doctors in Taichung, Taiwan. Once named China Medical College, CMU was the very first non-profit academic institution in Taiwan offering degree programs in Chinese medicine and pharmacy. With expanded programs and increased faculty, the institution became as China Medical University in 2003. During the past few decades, the university has steadily grown into one of the most prestigious medical universities in Taiwan and the Greater China region.

Located in the heart of Taiwan, the Taichung main campus encompasses seven colleges in which a variety of higher degree programs are offered in the fields of Western medicine, Chinese medicine, pharmacy, health care, life science, public health, and management. Interdisciplinary courses and international degree programs are also available for domestic and foreign students who desire to integrate their learning experiences and expand their horizons.
