Education

       The university insists on the coordinated development in terms of its scale, structure, quality, and teaching effect. This insistence has produced an increasingly enhanced educational quality as a consequence. Oriented toward an institution of research type at advanced level, the university has designated as the school motto “Learning and Practicing” and “Training Competent Physicians” as autographed by Mr. Cai Yuanpei, the famous educator of China. The university is carrying forward the glorious tradition of “Patriotism, Philanthropism, and Commitment to Human Health”, acting on the educational concept of “Reviving the Nation, Devotion, and Fraternity”, and carrying out the school spirit of “Pursuing Truth, Essence, and Originality”. At the university, full expression has been found in the exemplary role of the “Quality Project” which is symbolic of the deepening of teaching reform. The university won three first prizes, four second prizes, and three third prizes in terms of the provincial-level teaching achievement. So far, approximately 100 faculty members have been on editorial boards of the national-level textbooks, of whom more than 20 have been editors in chief or associate editors in chief. The university had one doctoral dissertation nominated for the honor of the “National Outstanding Doctoral Dissertations” each for the years 2008 and 2009. In 2009, one doctoral dissertation was awarded the prize of “Provincial Outstanding Doctoral Dissertation” of Anhui Province. In 2008, up to 12 master's theses were awarded the prize of the “First Outstanding Master's Theses of Anhui Province.” Again, in 2009, six master's theses won the honor of “Outstanding Master's Theses of Anhui Province”. Currently, the university's teaching hospitals and bases for professional training and practice have reached 100 in number, with four hospitals directly affiliated and six hospitals closely related, plus 42 clinical schools attached, to the university.
