Nanjing Medical University (NMU) is a comprehensive university in Nanjing, originally established in Zhenjiang City 1934. NMU comprises two major campuses, Wutai campus and Jiangning campus. The School of Public Health (SPH), Nanjing Medical University (NJMU), traces its root to the Department of Public Health at the National Jiangsu Medical College in 1940s as one of the earliest professional training programs in public health and preventive medicine education in China. In 1958, our SPH started degree education of bachelor of preventive medicine. Today, the school also offers programs of PhD, MSc and MPH degrees in public health and preventive medicine.

Our SPH comprises 7 departments (Occupational Medicine and Environmental Health, Toxicology, Epidemiology and Biostatistics, Nutrition and Food Hygiene, Maternal Child and Adolescent Health, Social Medicine and Health Education, Hygienic Analysis and Detection) and 3 research centers (the State Experimental Teaching Center of Preventive Medicine, the Public Health Emergency Consultation and Research Center and the Hygienic Analysis and Detection Center).
