Guangzhou University of Chinese Medicine (simplified Chinese: 广州中医药大学; traditional Chinese: 廣州中醫藥大學; pinyin: Guǎngzhōu Zhōng yīyào dàxué) is an higher education institution, located in Guangzhou, the capital of Guangdong Province, China.

History[edit]

It was founded in 1924, known as Guangdong Traditional Chinese Medicine and Pharmacology School. It was already a higher educational institution that was approved by the government of the Republic of China. In 1956, it became Guangzhou Traditional Chinese Medicine College, with the approval of the State Council of the People's Republic of China, and is one of four earliest established institutions in China specializing in Chinese traditional medicine. It was originally directly affiliated with the Ministry of Health of the People's Republic of China and the State Administration of Traditional Medicine. In 2000, the university became a joint venture between the central government and provincial government, but mainly under the jurisdiction of Guangdong province.
