China, officially the People’s Republic of China (PRC), is a sovereign state in East Asia. It is the world’s most populous country, with a population of over 1.35 billion. The PRC is a single-party state governed by the Communist Party, with its seat of government in the capital city of Beijing. It exercises jurisdiction over 22 provinces, five autonomous regions, four direct-controlled municipalities (Beijing, Tianjin, Shanghai and Chongqing), and two mostly self-governing special administrative regions (Hong Kong and Macau); while claiming sovereignty over Taiwan.
Covering approximately 9.6 million square kilometers, China is the world’s second-largest country by land area, and either the third or fourth-largest by total area, depending on the method of measurement. China’s landscape is vast and diverse, ranging from forest steppes and the Gobi and Taklamakan deserts in the arid north to subtropical forests in the wetter south. The Himalaya, Karakoram, Pamir and Tian Shan mountain ranges separate China from South and Central Asia. The Yangtze and Yellow Rivers, the third- and sixth-longest in the world, run from the Tibetan Plateau to the densely populated eastern seaboard. China’s coastline along the Pacific Ocean is 14,500 kilometres (9,000 mi) long, and is bounded by the Bohai, Yellow, East and South China Seas.
China is a cradle of civilization, with its known history beginning with an ancient civilization – one of the world’s earliest – that flourished in the fertile basin of the Yellow River in the North China Plain. For millennia, China’s political system was based on hereditary monarchies, known as dynasties, beginning with the semi-mythological Xia of the Yellow River basin(c. 2800 BCE). Since 221 BCE, when the Qin Dynasty first conquered several states to form a Chinese empire, the country has expanded, fractured and reformed numerous times. The Republic of China (ROC) overthrew the last dynasty in 1911, and ruled the Chinese mainland until 1949. After World War II, the Communist Party defeated the nationalist Kuomintang in mainland China and established the People’s Republic of China in Beijing on 1 October 1949, while the Kuomintang relocated the ROC government to its present capital of Taipei.
China had the largest and most complex economy in the world for most of the past two thousand years, during which it has seen cycles of prosperity and decline. Since the introduction of economic reforms in 1978, China has become one of the world’s fastest-growing major economies. As of 2014, it is the world’s second-largest economy by nominal total GDP and largest by purchasing power parity (PPP). China is also the world’s largest exporter and second-largest importer of goods. China is a recognized nuclear weapons state and has the world’s largest standing army, with the second-largest defence budget.The PRC has been a United Nations member since 1971, when it replaced the ROC as a permanent member of the U.N. Security Council. China is also a member of numerous formal and informal multilateral organizations, including the WTO, APEC, BRICS, the Shanghai Cooperation Organization, the BCIM and the G-20. China is a great power and a major regional power within Asia, and has been characterized as a potential superpower.
China is a member of the WTO and is the world’s largest trading power, with a total international trade value of US$3.87 trillion in 2012. Its foreign exchange reserves reached US$2.85 trillion by the end of 2010, an increase of 18.7% over the previous year, making its reserves by far the world’s largest. In 2012, China was the world’s largest recipient of inward foreign direct investment (FDI), attracting $253 billion.China also invests abroad, with a total outward FDI of $62.4 billion in 2012, and a number of major takeovers of foreign firms by Chinese companies In 2009, China owned an estimated $1.6 trillion of US securities, and was also the largest foreign holder of US public debt, owning over $1.16 trillion in US Treasury bonds. China’s undervalued exchange rate has caused friction with other major economies, and it has also been widely criticized for manufacturing large quantities of counterfeit goods. According to consulting firm McKinsey, total outstanding debt in China increased from $7.4 trillion in 2007 to $28.2 trillion in 2014, which reflects 228% of China’s GDP, a percentage higher than that of some G20 nations.
Education in China comprises primary and junior secondary school, which together last for nine years. In 2010, about 82.5 percent of students continued their education at a three-year senior secondary school. The Gaokao, China’s national university entrance exam, is a prerequisite for entrance into most higher education institutions. In 2010, 27 percent of secondary school graduates are enrolled in higher education.Vocational education is available to students at the secondary and tertiary level
The National Health and Family Planning Commission, together with its counterparts in the local commissions, oversees the health needs of the Chinese population. An emphasis on public health and preventive medicine has characterized Chinese health policy since the early 1950s. At that time, the Communist Party started the Patriotic Health Campaign, which was aimed at improving sanitation and hygiene, as well as treating and preventing several diseases. Diseases such as cholera, typhoid and scarlet fever, which were previously rife in China, were nearly eradicated by the campaign. After Deng Xiaoping began instituting economic reforms in 1978, the health of the Chinese public improved rapidly because of better nutrition, although many of the free public health services provided in the countryside disappeared along with the People’s Communes. Healthcare in China became mostly privatized, and experienced a significant rise in quality. In 2009, the government began a 3-year large-scale healthcare provision initiative worth US$124 billion.

Peking University Health Science Center (PUHSC) is located in Xueyuan Rd., Haidian District, a cultural area with many universities. It is in the center of the well-known Zhong Guan Cun Hi-Tech Zone. PUHSC is a well-structured, multi-disciplined comprehensive medical education palace with a long history.
The history of PUHSC can be traced back to as early as the beginning of the 20th century. In 1903 the government of Qing Dynasty established the Medical Clinic at the Royal Capital Higher Educational Institute. The next year it was moved into a new place renovated from the Xingsheng Temple at Bajiaoliulijing, Hepingmen Wai. This clinic closed after 4 years of existence in 1907, and it was purchased by the Medical Bureau (the counterpart of Health Department then) in 1910, providing a good foundation for the establishment of the first national public medical school several years later in China.
The 1911 Revolution overthrew the Qing Dynasty and founded the Republic of China. With the fashion of learning from the West growing then, western medicine gained more recognition in China. In September 1912, the Ministry of Education summoned Mr. Tang Erhe, a famous professor of histology trained in Japan who was busy preparing for the establishment of Zhejiang Provincial Medical School, to come to Beijing to plan for the establishment of a national medical school. The Ministry of Education bought the estate of the Medical Clinic at the price of 10,000 taels of silver and gave it to the new medical school. On October 16th, the Ministry of Education appointed Tang Erhe as the President of Peking Medical School. Thus the first national school of western medicine was formally established, having nine staff members with the first admission of 72 students.
In the decades after its foundation Peking Medical School struggled through the unsteady years of wars and social turmoil. In the 1930s, it was renamed as Peking University Medical School, and was incorporated into Peking University in 1940s
In July 1946, Peking University was re-established in Peking and Professor Hu Shi was appointed as its president. Under his presidency, the No.6 Preparatory Class and the Affiliated Hospital that survived the Anti-Japanese War were restructured to form the Peking University Medical School. Dr.Ma Wenzhao, professor of anatomy, Dr.Shen Junqi, professor of physiology, and Dr.Hu Chuankui, professor of dermatology served as the deans successively in the following years. Dr.Hu was also the chief executive officer of the affiliated hospital (known as Beida Hospital).
In 1952, with the restructuring of higher education system of new China, Peking University Medical School was separated from Peking University and became an independent college named as Beijing Medical College, Dr. Hu Chuankui being its first president. Under the new system, the Ministry of Health became the governing body and funding authority of Beijing Medical College. It was then the college moved to the present address, No.38 Xueyuan Rd.. Thereafter, it began to develop rapidly.
In 1959,Beijing Medical College was recognized as one of China’s 16 key universities.
In 1984, the State Council approved 10 institutions for priority development. Among them, Beijing Medical College was the only medical institution. Prof. Ma Xu was its president at this time.
In 1985, the college was renamed as Beijing Medical University(BMU) with Dr. Qu Mianyu, professor in sports medicine, as the president.
In the Mid-1990s, the Chinese government completed its reorientation for higher education and worked out its reform guidelines. As a result, the “211 Higher Education Development Project” was put forward to advocate priority development of about 100 higher educational institutions so that they can rank among the top universities in the world. BMU successfully completed the national assessment process and was accredited on Augest 28th, 1996, as one of the first few institutions qualified for the “211 Project.” From 1991 to April 2000, BMU was presidented by the distinguished hematologist, Dr. Wang Debing.
On April 3rd,2000, BMU was again incorporated into Peking University. And on May 4th, it was formally renamed Peking University Health Science Center, and Dr. Han Qide, professor of pathophysiology and academician of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, was entitled the President of PUHSC.
