Peking Union Medical College

The Peking Union Medical College was founded in 1906. The American Board of Commissioners for Foreign Missions, the Board of Foreign Missions of the Prebyterian Church in the U.S.A., the London Missionary Society, and later, the Board of Foreign Missions of the Methodist Episcopal Church, the Society for the Propagation of the Gospel, and the Medical Missionary Association of London, together with the then-Chinese government cooperated in the foundation and development of the Medical College and maintained it until 1915. The Rockefeller Foundation was established in 1913 and in 1913-1914 the newly formed Foundation created a Commission to examine medical education in China. One of its recommendations was that the Foundation - through a subsidiary organization - should assume financial responsibility for the College. On July 1, 1915 the recently established China Medical Board assumed full support of the Union Medical College, having previously acquired the property.

The Commission's members had included both William Welch, the first Dean of the Johns Hopkins Medical School and Simon Flexner and the China Medical Board modeled the school after Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine following the recommendations of the Flexner Report which set the foundation of modern Medical Education in the United States and Canada. The PUMC was reorganized in 1917 and celebrated its 90th anniversary with a ceremony attended by the President of Johns Hopkins University, the Chair of the China Medical Board and representatives of the Rockefeller family and Rockefeller Brothers Fund. During the "Cultural Revolution" Peking Union Medical College was re-named "Capital University of Medical Sciences", but in 1979, it was renamed to Peking Union Medical College.(from wiki.com) 

中国医学科学院成立于1956年,是我国唯一的国家级医学科学学术中心和综合性医学科学研究机构。中国协和医科大学(下称协和医大)是我国最早设有八年制临床医学专业和护理本科教育的重点医科大学,其前身是"北京协和医学院",由美国洛克菲勒基金会于1917年创办。医科院与协和医大实行院校合一的管理体制,医科院为协和医大提供雄厚的师资和技术力量,协和医大为医科院培养高层次的人才,相互依托,优势互补,教研相长。院校设有18个研究所(以及2个分所)、5所分院、7所临床医院(含与北京市共建的天坛医院)、5所学院。

协和医大坚持医学精英教育,以小规模招生、高层次培养为办学宗旨,实行高进优教严出。自建校以来,八年制临床医学专业坚持实行小规模、严要求,预科、本科分段教学,导师制等独特的培养模式,在我国医学教育体系中独树一帜。协和医大的高等护理教育创办于1920年,培养了一大批高级护理人才,她们已先后成为我国护理界的领导和中坚力量,我国第一个南丁格尔奖章获得者就出自协和医大。1995年经国家卫生部批准,学校建立了全国首家护理学院,使护理教育有了新的发展。当前,护理教育已形成研究生、本科生、专科生和成人教育等多层次的教育体系。学校的研究生教育始于1954年,文革期间中断,1978年重新恢复。自1981年国家实行学位制度以来,学校研究生教育有了较快的发展,是全国首批具有博士学位和硕士学位授予权的单位,研究生教育实行以培养博士生为主的方针。研究生的培养方式分为以实验室科学研究能力训练为主的科学学位和以临床实际工作能力训练为主的专业学位两类,可分别授予医学博士、理学博士(哲学博士)、工学博士、医学硕士、理学硕士、工学硕士、管理学硕士等学位。医学继续教育设置了临床医学、护理学、医学影像学和医学实验技术专业。多年来协和医大为国家培养了大批优秀的临床医学家、医学科学家、医学教育家、护理学家和医政管理学家,对我国医学教育和医学科学事业的进步和发展起着积极的推动作用,在国内外享有很高的声誉。

院校现有博士学位授权学科专业点49个,硕士学位授权学科专业点52个,18个国家重点学科,18个国家级工业试验基地及中心,4个国家重点实验室,8个部委级重点实验室,6个博士后科研流动站,10个世界卫生组织合作中心。
