Zunyi Medical College (Zunyi Campus)

Zunyi Medical College (Zhuhai Campus)

Zunyi Medical College (Chinese: 遵义医学院; pinyin: Zūnyì yīxuéyuàn) is a medical university in Zunyi, Guizhou province of the People's Republic of China.[1]

History[edit]

The college was founded in 1947 as the Dalian Medical College. The college was relocated from Dalian to Zunyi and renamed Zunyi Medical College in 1969. After 60 years of history, the college has already grown into a comprehensive centre for medical education.[1][2] [3]

Zunyi Medical College (ZMC), a key medical college at the provincial level in Guizhou Province, is located in Zunyi, a historically, culturally and scenically celebrated city. ZMC’s predecessor, Dalian Medical College, was the first medical college established by the Communist Party of China in 1947. It was, on the orders of the State Council, moved to Zunyi in 1969 to support the development of the Southwestern China and renamed as Zunyi Medical College. The 62 years since its foundation has witnessed ZMC developing into a highly accredited multi-disciplinary and multi-specialty medical education institution.[4]

College Badge[edit]

A school’s badge evokes memory of bygone years, artistically symbolizes the school’s concept and culture, inherits and carries forward the school’s history and tradition. After more than 60 eventful years of tiding over hardships and difficulties, going through vicissitudes and pressing ahead steadily, the college has formed its own rich culture, cultivated a quality of genuineness, fortitude and sedulousness. Always remaining vigorous and active over past 6 decades, the college has scored notable achievements in various undertakings. ZMC’s badge is designed in the form of a dove spreading its wings to fly, successfully embodying the leitmotif of peace, harmony and development, setting off the college’s vitality as a burgeoning comprehensive college with medicine being the main discipline. The image and symbolism of a dove are universally acceptable; hence, the design intensifies the audience’s recognition of the badge, and aggrandizes the channel for popularizing it. By combining the form of the initial letters Z and Y of Zunyi and of the Chinese character 义, the badge is designed into a dove spreading its wings to fly, signifying the truth of medicine, philanthropism, brightness, health and happiness. The dove’s wings spread outward in the form of an opened book, implying the essence of the college. The dove tail is somewhat magnified, in the shape of an arrowhead piercing into the sky, indicating momentum and speed, emblematic of ZMC’s speedy growth and the bright future for its ambition to rank among the universities of first class. The dot in the character 义 and the letter Y make a gamboling person, giving prominence to the school’s teaching methodology of “put people first”, to the school’s faculty and students’ lofty ideals to explore the unknown world and scale summit after summit of knowledge, and to the school’s spirit of keeping abreast of time, forging ahead and pursuing perfection. The badge makes a flying arrow from the dove’s head to its tail, shaped like letter C standing for college or letter U standing for university, showing that the school is advancing toward a higher level and achieving its higher goals.[5]
