The History of Wenzhou Medical University can be traced back to the former Zhejiang Specialized Medical School established in Hangzhou in 1912, as one of the earliest higher learning institution in modern medicine. In August 1958, a group of faculty were sent from Hangzhou to Wenzhou to help build up Zhejiang Second Medical College, which was renamed Wenzhou Medical College after the city it is located. In 2013, it changed its name to Wenzhou Medical University.
