Chongqing Medical University (CQMU), formerly Chongqing Medical College, was founded in 1956 by partly relocating Shanghai First Medical College (Shanghai Medical College of Fudan University). 60 years later today, CQMU has grown into a state-funded medical university jointly supported by the Ministry of Education, National Health Commission and Chongqing Municipal Government. CQMU joins the Initiative of Pilot Universities of International Cooperation of Chongqing.
