Chongqing Medical University

Founded in 1956, Chongqing Medical University or CQMU was first part of the Shanghai First Medical College, now part of Fudan University. CQMU is now a comprehensive medical university with a diverse offering of Bachelors, Masters, Doctors and Postdoctoral programs. 

Chongqing Medical University has two campuses, covering an area of 1.7 million m2. Yuanjiagang Campus is centrally located in Chongqing’s Yuzhong district. From the university’s central location, one can easily access all four of Chongqing’s central business districts using nearby major infrastructure links. Jinyun Campus, located in University Town, is an ideal location for study and research. The natural scenery and university master plan affords our students with many opportunities to partake in extracurricular activities, research and study. 

Our university currently has 26,000 students enrolled and taking classes. Of these students, 18,000 are undergraduates, 4,500 are postgraduates and 467 are international students. 

Our university hosts 19 colleges and departments, a graduate school, a life sciences institute, and a strong faculty team of 1371 professors and associate professors and over 209 PhD/MD supervisors. 

CQMU offers 7 postdoctoral programs, 33Ph.D. programs, 77 Master’s programs and 24 bachelor specialties including clinical laboratory medicine, pediatrics, and nursing, all of which are nationally ranked. 

There are four key disciplines at CQMU: infectious diseases, pediatrics, clinical laboratory diagnostics, and neurology, all of which are nationally ranked and are among the best programs offered in China. 

The sheer volume of our university’s capacity in the numbers of beds and outpatients each year will provide researchers from overseas to come into contact with a wide variety of medical cases and afford ample opportunities to research them. CQMU has 6 well-facilitated affiliated hospitals with 10,000 beds, over 5.5 million outpatients and 210 thousand inpatients each year. 20 clinical specialties, including cardiovascular medicine, obstetrics, neonatology and children respiratory medicine are of national importance, representing the most advanced level of China in medical treatment, teaching, and scientific research.

Chongqing Medical University is ranked 3rd among medical universities nationwide. CQMU has great potential in furthering international medical research because of its access to an extensive research staff, diverse system of facilities and sheer volume of patients. 

CQMU has, over time, developed an advanced research platform. This has led to having a strong strength in research. For example, many faculty members have worked as leading scientists in over 500 different projects, winning over 110 different kinds of awards in science and technology. CQMU also operates a national engineering research center and a national bio-industry base experimental animal centre. 

CQMU has a leading platform for the HIFU or High Intensity Focused Ultrasound technology. Developed at our research center, the HIFU is the first large advanced piece of medical equipment natively produced in China. It has been exported to many countries in Europe and Asia. CQMU wants to provide overseas researchers with the opportunity to conduct research using this advanced piece of technology. 

Recognizing the significance of globalization in medical education and research, CQMU attaches great importance to the exchanges and cooperation at home and abroad. In recent years, the university has set up collaborative relationships with more than 10 high-level universities in countries like the United States, 

Canada, the United Kingdom, France, Belgium and Australia etc.. Joint academic and exchange programs at all student levels as well as joint scientific research programs have been carried out with these universities. In the following, we’ll take a look at some of CQMU’s established partnerships with overseas universities.

Partnering the University of British Columbia, our university has set up the " Canada-China Joint Center for Translational Medical Research in Child 

Development and Alzheimer's Disease”, in which joint efforts have been made to develop breakthroughs in areas of cognitive development, learning and memory disorder, and other related diseases. Collaboration with the Chinese Life Scientists Society in the UK and our university has led to a comprehensive strategic partnership to set up a high-level research center for metabolic diseases, tumors and biomedical engineering. 

Together with University College of London, CQMU has established The Joint Center for Lipid Research which has reached the top level in the country. 

Chongqing Medical University has established joint student and faculty exchange programs with many universities in Asia, Europe and North America. Our students and faculty attend these institutions for clinical rotations, attending classes and partaking in joint scientific research. At present, the university is building up an international medical school with an American university, aiming at training world-class physicians and other healthcare professionals and fostering collaborations in education, research and patient care. CQMU also runs a study and culture tour every year the aforementioned universities. 

CQMU is striving to build itself into a high-level international medical university with distinct advantages and unique characteristics. Our belief is that organized knowledge expressed through an intelligent effort is the best way to move forward with the challenges in 21st century medicine. Our future vision is to continue our international partnerships in research while concentrating on undergraduate education. By collaborating with more overseas universities, 

CQMU hopes to foster long term, equitable partnerships that will benefit both sides and more importantly, medical research.
