About Chung Shan Medical University:
The university was established as Chung Shan Dentistry Specialized School in 1960, by Dr. Chou Ju-chuan, a Taiwanese dentist. At first it only provided four year dentistry education, and enrolled only 112 students. In 1962 it changed its name into Chung Shan Medical Specialized School, and provided medical education from then. In 1977, it was upgraded to Chung Shan Medical College, and in August 2001 it was certified by the Ministry of Education as a normalized university.
Currently, the CSMU consists of five colleges, 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 are 21 academic departments and 18 graduate institutes.
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.
