HistoryEdit

Shanghai Second Medical College was established in 1952 and was renamed Shanghai Second Medical University in 1985. It was composed of the medical schools of Aurora University and St. John's University and Tong De Medical College. It was a municipal university before 2005.[6]

In July 2005, under an agreement signed by Shanghai Municipal Government and the Ministry of Education, Shanghai Jiao Tong University and Shanghai Second Medical University were merged into one. The new university is administered by both Shanghai Municipal Government and the Ministry of Education.

In November, 2010, SJTUSM became one of the first ten universities jointly supported by the Ministry of Health and the Ministry of Education. The rich historic background of over one hundred years and heroic journey of more than 50 years have eventually brought about a research-oriented medical school with all-round development in medical education, clinical services, and scientific research, as well as other social services, a medical school with outstanding features and distinct advantages, a strong faculty, and remarkable academic achievements. In the second round of evaluating disciplines in degree and graduate programs organized by the Ministry of Education in 2009, clinical medicine of SJTUSM ranked first nationally, and the comprehensive strength of various disciplines belonged to the first echelon of the nation's medical schools.[7]
