Shanghai Second Medical University


SSMU was founded in 1952 during the nation-wide reorganization of institutes of higher education. Incorporated into this University were the schools of Medicine of St. John’s University (1896-1952), the Medical College of Aurora University (1911-1952), and the Tong-De Medical College (1918-1952). It was given its present name, Shanghai Second Medical University, in 1985.

SSMU encompasses 360,157.09 m2 of the land. It has 13 colleges, 1 national hygiene school; 5 affiliate hospitals; 1 specialty hospital, 15 teaching hospitals and 126 teaching specialties. In this university there are 2 seven-year programs (master degrees), 6 programs for bachelor degree, 6 three-year vocational programs, 3 Ph.D degree training locations, 31 specialties conferring Ph.D, and 47 specialties conferring master’s degree. 25,000 students have been graduated from the school since its founding.

With a century of history and 50 years of rapid development, SSMU has become a new state-of-the-art medical university consisting of almost all disciplines, a strong faculty, remarkable academic achievements, and comprehensively developed clinical, teaching and research facilities. In July 1996, the school was selected as one of the nation-wide key institutes after its application was approved.

HCMI is an official partner in the tri-party collaboration for the SMU –UPH International Off-shore Program.
