Expert introduction

PUMCH was founded by the Rockefeller Foundation in 1921. From the very beginning, it was intended to be built into the “best Medical Center in Asia”. Over the past 100 years, the PUMCH spirit of “preciseness, ever-improving, diligence, and devotion” and the PUMCH aspiration of “practicing medicine for the country and the people and assiduously learning in pursuit of knowledge” has been passed on from generations to generations. The hospital has also formed the modern medical education concept of “Three Basics” and “Three Stricts”. We have been proud of our “Three Treasures”, namely, professors, case files and libraries. PUMCH has fostered many medical pioneers and masters in modern China such as Dr. ZHANG Xiaoqian and Dr. LIN Qiaozhi. In addition, generations of administrative personnel have been trained in PUMCH and spread all over China. More than ten renowned comprehensive or specialized hospitals were originated from PUMCH. PUMCH innovatively proposed the notion for running the hospital “treat patients as family and boost their satisfaction, treat colleagues as family to boost their happiness”, put forward the grand vision to build an academic, quality and humanistic PUMCH as connotation of “the century PUMCH”. PUMCH is pushing on the construction of “the Six System”: Medical Services System, Talents Training System, Science and Innovation System, Fine Management System, Open & Collaboration System, Party & Culture Building System.

Currently, there are four campuses in PUMCH, with a total construction area of 610,000 square meters. PUMCH has more than 4,300 employees, 3 academicians of the Chinese Academy of Sciences and Chinese Academy of Engineering, 58 clinical and medical technology departments, 29 national key clinical specialties, 6 national scientific research platforms, 5 national “double first-class” construction disciplines, 12 national key disciplines, and 9 disciplines authorized to offer doctoral degree programs, 6 national medical continuing education centers, 20 national standardized residency training centers, and 8 national standardized specialist training centers. PUMCH offers more than 2,000 beds, operated more than 58000 cases and discharged over 113,300 patients in 2021. Meanwhile, PUMCH also shoulders its social responsibility to offer medical services and support for underdeveloped and remote areas, emergencies and major national events.

Consistently guided by the needs of our patients, we aim to provide the best services with our solid faith, professional ethics, unreserved contribution, and rigorous academic attitude. On the journey to our new centenary, sticking to the orientation “all for our people and all for the patient”, we are making strenuous efforts in building PUMCH into the national medical center and a “world-class hospital with Chinese characteristics”, working hard to safeguard people’s health in an all-round manner and in their full life cycle and propel PUMCH to spearhead China’s healthcare development.
