About AHMU

文本框:  Anhui Medical University(AMU) is one of the oldest educational institutions in Hefei, Anhui province, which is located in the east of central China and honored as “the city with State Innovation of Science and Technology”. Around the two campuses are some of the renowned universities and institutions, such as University of Science and Technology of China(USTC), Hefei Institutes of Physical Sciences of China Academy of Science (CASHIPS), and Hefei University of Technology(HUT). AMU, formerly Shanghai Southeast Medical College, was founded in Shanghai by a group of overseas students with M.D degree who returned from Japan in 1926. The idea of those pioneers was to create a medical university to save Chinese people suffering from diseases in the hard time. Following several times of relocations from Shanghai to inland of Anhui Province during the past decades, the university has grown significantly.The spectrum of subjects has steadily been extended and now has developed into a comprehensive medical university with 23 subjects covering nearly all of the medical fields including Clinical Medicine, Public Health and Preventive Medicine, Health Management, Pharmacology, Dentistry, and Nursing, among those eight subjects have been qualified to offer Ph.D. degree. The University consists of eight faculties, totally, 17 000 enrolled students, in which Medical Faculty predominates with over 6,000 students including clinical medicine, laboratory medicine, psychology, anesthesia, and medical imaging, etc.

AMU insists on an important concept since its foundation to promote interdisciplinarity and combination of teaching and scientific research with clinical activities. An important step in combining the strength of medication and medical research was the realization of the necessity for expansion of the campus and establishment of additional affiliated hospitals for students practice and young scientists training. The Teaching and Research Building in the campus provides both domestic and returned overseas scientists with well-equiped laboratories and net access. The First University Hospital and the University Hospital of Dentistry enjoy high reputation in the east of the cent文本框:  ral country and other three newly set up hospitals have been put into use since years ago, with a total number of 3000 sickbeds. These university affiliated hospitals fulfil their functions and perform their duties in clinical treatment, research, teaching, and courses of study. In addition to the “hardware” construction, the university has been focusing on both basic and applied research, ranking in top one of the province-owned academic institutions in the grant harvest from the National Science Foundation of China (NSFC) and featuring several recognized special areas such as dermatology and venereal diseases, which is now the National Key Discipline with several significant achievements in Genome-wide Association Study (GWAS) of psoriasis and other dermal lesions. Pharmacology shares one of the main research areas and involves the screening and characterization of efficacious compounds from Traditional Chinese Medical Herbs. This subject was the first one to be granted independent doctorial degree award in the province. Other disciplines including epidemiology, infectious diseases (microbiology and parasitology), aging and regenerative research, maternal and child care, gastroenterology, neurology 文本框:  and psychology, gynaecology and obstetrics, and organ transplantations, etc. are also responsible for fostering the new generation of scientists and further training of staff and recognized as well for their talents and overwhelming achievements in the state.
