The American Council of committeemen on Foreign Missions, Council on Foreign Missions of the Presbyterian Chapel in the USA, London Missionary Community, and then Council on Foreign Missions of the Methodist Episcopal Chapel, Gospel Distribution Community, and London Medical Missionary Union, together with the then Chinese government were involved in the collaboration of the creation and development of this Academy and supported it till 1915.

In the middle of the 20th century, significant changes occurred. The new governance accused PUMC of being an agent of American cultural imperialism. Therefore, the Ministry of Health renamed itself into the Association of Chinese Medical Academy. The language of specification has also been changed from English to Chinese. A year later, the curriculum was militarized and reduced to one year to train army officers, and Soviet models were introduced. The basic orientation toward Eastern medicine was supported, and staff did not stop to conduct research and advanced operations.

In 1956, independence was again acquired but the government did not stop to be dissatisfied with the Academy for its elitism, cosmopolitism, and disability to “help the people” during periodical campaigns. PUMA stopped working when the Cultural Revolution took place. Later it reinstated its work as the Metropolitan Academy of Medical Sciences, and then in 1985 was named as PUMC.
