Wenzhou Medical University (WMU; Chinese: 温州医科大学; pinyin: Wenzhou Yike Daxue), designated as a key university in Wenzhou, Zhejiang, is an institution of higher learning under the leadership of Zhejiang Provincial Government.

History[edit]

Its history can be traced back to Zhejiang Specialized Medical School established in Hangzhou in 1912, named Zhejiang Second Medical College at that time. In August 1958, part of Zhejiang Medical College was moved from Hangzhou to Wenzhou and began recruiting 5-year fulltime program students, hence the name Wenzhou Medical College (WMC).

In 2013, the Chinese Ministry of Higher Education china upgraded WMC's status to that of a medical university; it has thus been renamed the Wenzhou Medical University.
