    The goal and mission of the School of Basic Medical Sciences of Zhejiang University is to provide premedical education for healthcare professionals and to cultivate tomorrow's leader in biomedical sciences with outstanding creativity, leadership and international vision. The school has made tremendous progress in the innovative research of basic medical sciences and now become an important base for premedical education in China.

    On the basis of the outstanding performance in the National Science Education Base of Basic Medicine, the School was granted as the National Pilot School by the Ministry of Education of China in 2011. The School has been listed as the First-class discipline in construction of World-class university by the Ministry of Education in 2017.
