The Second Affiliated Hospital of Zhejiang University College of Medicine grew out of the C.M.S. Hospital (founded in1896), which was one of the first in China that specialized in western medicine. In 1889, the hospital was changed as a leprosarium. In 1949, Department of Dermatology and Syphilology was one of the four major departments in the hospital. It is one of the few independent departments in China. In 1956, the first formal university hospital training program for dermatology in Zhejiang Province begins at the Second Affiliated Hospital of Zhejiang Medical University. Dr. YAO Jichang chaired the department. Dermatological service expanded in the areas of STD and mycosis. The department maintained an active outpatient service as well as inpatient beds. In 1984, Prof. YAO Jichang retired and was succeeded by Prof. SUN Guojun. The Department of Dermatology service expanded in the areas of mycology, histopathology and immunology. In 1996, Prof. Dr. med ZHENG Min was appointed as Chairman to the Department of Dermatology. A full range of subspecialty programs is available within the department. The first Dermatology Laser Center in Zhejiang Province was initiated. The dermatological research laboratory was set up and researches were initiated and shifted to basic science with practical applications. The cosmetic skin surgical Unit was set up. Photodynamic therapy for treatment of cutaneous carcinomas was initiated. A psoriasis research program began. In 2003 Outpatient Department of Dermatology moved to its present location in the Sixth floor of the new outpatient building. The present research activity includes clinical researches of inflammatory skin diseases (eg.psoriasis and atopic dermatitis), hair follicle biology, autoimmune skin diseases (eg. SLE, DM, SSD, pemphigus and pemphigoid), basic epidermal regulation and pharmacological study of retinoids, etc.. Basic research in areas of immunology and molecular genetics expands. The psoriasis research program is nationally prominent. Department of Dermatology handles more than 60,000 outpatient visits and 500 inpatient hospitalization each year and is recognized as the Province's finest resident programs in dermatology.
