Brief History

Originally known as " Kaohsiung Medical College ", Kaohsiung Medical University was founded in 1954 by former Kaohsiung Mayor Frank C. Chuan, who donated land for the college site and Prof. Tu Tsung Ming, 's first Doctor of Medicine. Located in Kaohsiung, southern 's urban heart, the college is the first private institution. Prof. Tu, the first college president, built up the school in line with his philosophy of "Enjoying learning, Prioritizing Research", and "Resolutely striving for progress, encouraging study, and contributing to the world." Thanks to the efforts of his high-minded and hard-working colleagues, Prof. Tu transformed Kaohsiung Medical College into a major center for medical sciences in Southern Taiwan. The college hospital was founded in June 1957. Currently " Kaohsiung Medical University Chung-Ho Memorial Hospital " has become southern 's largest medical center, safeguarding the health of the region's residents while fulfilling its three-fold mission of teaching, research, and service. In 1998, the college signed an agreement with the Kaohsiung Municipal Government, allowing it to assume managing Hsiao-kang Hospital, which has since then continued to provide medical treatment and community health services. The university has shouldered the four tasks of teaching, research, medical care, and service for more than 50 years.
