Profile - Guangxi Medical University (GXMU)

It was one of the earliest eight nominated medical schools in China to enroll the students from Hong Kong, Macao, Taiwan and the overseas Chinese.
A long history of school-running.
Our school was founded in Nanning City on Nov. 21, 1934, with a Kwangsi Provincial Medical College as its predecessor and a Dr. Ge Shaolong as the first director of the college. Dr. Ge obtained his doctoral degree in Japan and worked as a professor of Department Otorhinolaryngology of Peiping Medical University.
In 1940 the school moved to Guilin. Before 1949, the school had experienced seven times of resettlements, three times of renaming and much great hardships, but never stopped its school-running. In November, 1949, the college was renamed Provincial Medical College of Guangxi, and then in 1952 it worked directly under the Central South Ministry of Health authorized by the Central Ministry of Health.
Approved by the Central Ministry of Health in April, 1953, the college renamed itself Guangxi Medical College. One year and three months later, the school moved from Guilin back to Nanning.
In May, 1996, approved by the Ministry of Education, Guangxi Medical College was renamed Guangxi Medical University.
