About Anhui Medical University (AMU)

AMU, formerly Shanghai Southeast Medical College, was founded in Shanghai by a group of overseas students with an 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 a hard time.

AMU insists on an important concept since its foundation to promote interdisciplinarity and a 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 the establishment of additional affiliated hospitals for students practice and young scientists training. The Teaching and Research Building on the campus provides both domestic and returned overseas scientists with well-equipped laboratories and net access.
