Chung Shan Medical University (CSMU; Chinese: 中山醫學大學) is a medical university located in South District, Taichung, Taiwan.


The university was established as Chung Shan Dentistry Specialized School (Chinese: 中山牙醫專科學校) in 1960, by Dr. Chou Ju-chuan (周汝川), 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 (Chinese: 中山醫學專科學校), and provided medical education from then. In 1977, it was upgraded to Chung Shan Medical College (Chinese: 中山醫學院), and in August 2001 it was certified by the Ministry of Education as a normalized university named Chung Shan Medical University.[2]
