Dalian Medical University (DMU) International Education College (IEC) was founded in 1985 on the basis of a language cultivation and a short-term advanced studies program. In 2004, the university established MBBS (Bachelor of Medicine & Bachelor of Surgery) in the English medium and initiated to recruit educated international students; this launched an evolutionary prospect in Dalian Medical University's system expansion to international education. In June 2007, DMU International Education College became more driven to its purposes when it was evaluated by the National Education Board of China and became one of the thirty schools that excels in teaching international students in the English medium. In 2009, the university was led into a brand-new stage when it was approved by the national education board to become a Chinese government scholarship development school to international students, as well as being assessed to be an international education advanced unit in Liaoning Province. In 2011, China approved DMU to qualify in enrolling self-assessed government scholarship students, China-Russia humanity scholarship students, and China-America humanity scholarship students. In 2012, DMU was graded by Liaoning Education Department to be one of the five international education model facilities in Liaoning. In 2013, DMU was assessed to be the first batch of international education model university nationwide. In 2014, DMU was awarded the title "International Students Education Advanced Organization" in China.
