Wenzhou Medical University (WMU) is a higher institution under the administration of Zhejiang Provincial Government. It can trace its origin back to the former Zhejiang Specialized Medical School established in 1912.

In 2013 Wenzhou Medical College was officially renamed Wenzhou Medical University.

In 2017, it became a Priority Development University in Zhejiang Province.
