Daegu Haany University is a South Korean university specialized in providing training for practitioners of Oriental medicine. The main campus is located a short distance outside Daegu in Gyeongsan City, North Gyeongsang province. Another campus, along with the university hospital, operates within Daegu. The current president is Joon-Koo Lee, who has served since 2010.
Although continuing the university's traditional focus on Traditional Korean Medicine, the current academic offerings cover a wide range of fields, such as child welfare, tourism, and police administration.

The university opened its doors as a college in 1981. The affiliated hospital was opened in 1983. The college gained university status in 1992 and took on the name "Kyungsan University" (경산대학교). In 2003 the current name was adopted.
