Brief History of Chung Shan Medical University
Due to the shortage of dentists in the post war era during the 58
's in Taiwan, Dr. Ju-Chuan Chou founded Chung Shan Dental Junior College (the antecedent of Chung Shan Medical University) in 1960 with the purpose of training dentists. The school was named after Dr. Sun Yat-Sen, alias Chung-Shan, in recognition of his patriotism. The demand for the institute to be elevated to the college level was growing with the time. After much effort and program enforcement, in 1977, our school was granted by the Ministry of Education to advance to Chung Shan Medical and Dental College. Yet, we kept progressing and expanding. In 2001, the institute was reorganized as Chung Shan Medical University (CSMU).

Currently, the CSMU consists of fivecolleges, which are College of Medicine, College of Oral Medicine, College of Medical Sciences and Technology, College of Health Care and Management,College of Medical Humanities and Social Sciences. There are21academic departments and21graduate institutes. We have about399full-time faculty,229part-time faculty, and272staffs workingon campus. And about7,237undergraduateand graduate students are enrolled.
In addition, as a medical university, we have five affiliated hospital districts ---
Da-Ching District, Chung-Kang District, Wen-Hsin District and Chung-Shing District. Each district has its own specialties and the state-of-the-art clinical facilities, e.g. the first PET scanning machine in Taiwan.
