Chongqing Medical University(重庆医科大学)

Chongqing Medical University (CQMU), formerly Chongqing Medical College, was founded in 1956 by partially relocating Shanghai First Medical College, which is now Shanghai Medical College of Fudan University. After 65-year development, CQMU has grown into a state-funded medical university jointly supported by the Ministry of Education, National Health Commission and Chongqing Municipal Government. CQMU joins the Initiative of Pilot Universities of International Cooperation of Chongqing.

CQMU provides full range of programs from undergraduate to postgraduate. Post-doctoral research is also available.

CQMU has accomplished many research projects of various levels, including some state-level projects supported by the National Basic Research Program (973 Program), National High-Tech Research and Development Program (863 Program) and the Key Program of National Natural Science Foundation.

From 2016 to 2020, CQMU had undertaken more than 3700 new scientific programs approved by Ministry of Science and Technology, National Natural Science Foundation and other national or provincial departments. The High Intensity Focused Ultrasonic Therapy System (HIFU), initiated by CQMU, is the first Chinese large-scale medical equipment with complete intellectual property rights. HIFU has been put into use in over 50 hospitals around the world, including the UK, Italy, Spain, Germany, Japan, South Africa, Argentina etc. In 2020, CQMU successfully developed China's first Diagnostic kit for Novel Coronavirus IgM/IgG Antibody (magnetic particle chemiluminescence method) which was granted the CE Mark Certification in the European Union.

Active in international exchange and cooperation, CQMU has partnerships with universities in Asia, Europe, North America, and Oceania. A few of our partner universities include UCL of the United Kingdom, UBC of Canada and Dartmouth College of the United States.
