The School of Preclinical Medicine (SPM) of Zunyi Medical University, founded in 1969 and renamed in 2007 (called the Division of Preclinical Medicine before), is known as one of the priority schools in the university.
The school consists of thirteen departments, including Department ofHuman anatomy, histoembryology,Cytobiology, medical genetics, biochemistry, immunology, physiology, pathophysiology, microbiology, parasitology, physics, basic medical education, and medical instrument analysis. Furthermore, the schoolpossesses one research institute and four administrative departments, as well as threeindependentlaboratories:Morphological Science Laboratory, Functional Research Laboratory and Microbiologic and Immunological Laboratory.
The school currently has 249 faculty and over 100 master and doctoral supervisors. Seven master's programs are offered, including Biochemistry and Molecular biology, Cytobiology and Genetics, Human Anatomy, Histology and Embryology, Immunology, Microbiology, Parasitology, Pharmacology, Pathophysiology, and Physiology. In addition to scientific research and graduate education, undergraduate education is conducted in different subjects, such as the Medical, Dental, Nursing, and Pharmacy Programs.
The school establishes the major of Basic Medicine for undergraduates and is responsible for the students of clinical medicine for 2.5 years. Now, it undertakescourses for undergraduate and graduate students of various majors (more than 40 introductory medical courses for theundergraduate and over 20 courses for graduate students). It accumulates more than 60,000 teaching hours every year.
The School of Preclinical Medicineowns two first-level disciplines in Guizhou province, namely preclinical medicine and biology. In 2000, the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology were authorized as the vital discipline of Guizhou province. Then, the Department of Immunology (2014) and Preclinical Medicine (2015) were qualified as the distinctive key discipline of Guizhou province. The school had a long history of postgraduate education since 1955. In 1981, five departments(Pathological Anatomy, Pathophysiology, Physiology, Pharmacology, and Biochemistry) were authorized as the first batch of master degreeprograms in China. In 2011, Preclinical Medicine acquired the first-level disciplines of master degree authorization point with eight second-level disciplines points. The Biology was approved as the first-level disciplines of master degree authorization point in 2017 with four second-level disciplines points. The first-level discipline of Preclinical Medicine, as a construction discipline for the doctoral degree in Guizhou province, has co-trained PhD students successfully with Chongqing Medical University, Shanghai Jiaotong University, Shanghai University of Traditional Chinese Medicine, Guizhou University, and Suzhou University successively.
We are committed to making it one of China's best environments in the southwest for study and research in primary medical science education.
