In 1983, the medical imaging program of Hebei Medical University was formally established. In 1995, the medical imaging undergraduate program began to recruit passionate students. In 2004, the medical imaging technology vocational program began to enroll students, and the imaging department was established. In 2014, the medical imaging technology undergraduate program started to recruit students. In June 2017, the School of Medical Imaging was founded based on the original Medical Imaging department. 

This School now offers 2 undergraduate programs, including Medical Imaging and Medical Imaging Technology, which has enrolled 743 full-time undergraduates at present. Besides, the two disciplines offer doctoral, master’s and undergraduate programs and have been authorized to establish post-doctoral research stations. Thus, the School preliminarily forms a multidisciplinary coordinated and supportive development pattern, with medical imaging diagnostics and medical imaging technology as the main subjects. Now, the School owns 6 key medical disciplines in Hebei Province, 1 Hebei Brand Specialty, 1 Provincial Quality Course, and 2 Provincial Quality Online Courses.

The School has 16 teaching and research offices, including Medical Physics, Medical Mathematics, Computer, the First, Second, Third and Fourth Imaging Diagnosis, Nuclear Medicine, Ultrasound Diagnostics, Interventional Radiology, Imaging Technology, Medical Imaging Theory, Tumor Radiotherapy Technology, Imaging Equipment, Ultrasound Technology, and Nuclear Medicine Technology teaching and research offices. Besides the above-mentioned, it still involves 1 teaching experiment center, 1 co-constructed intelligent medical imaging laboratory, and 11 Training Centers of Clinical Medicine to immerse students in a deeper state of learning. 

The School is made up of teachers with rich teaching experiences and strong technical professionalism, of which the talent echelon indicates a reasonable structure. Specifically, the School has 32 full-time teachers and 109 part-time teachers, 5 of whom are PhD. supervisors and 35 of whom are M.S. supervisors. Besides, many teachers hold important academic positions such as chairmen, deputy chairmen, executive directors, directors, and other important academic positions in national first-level societies and provincial professional committees, and serve as editors in the editorial committees for Chinese core journals.In order to standardize the teaching of medical imaging, the clinical and basic science teachers in the School have compiled or participated in the compilation of 13 national planning textbooks in the past three years, 9 of which are 13thFive-year Planning textbooks. 

The School has made remarkable achievements in science and research in recent three years. For example, in the recent three years, teachers of the School of Medical Imaging have undertaken 2 Hebei Natural Science Foundation Projects,55 projects of provincial level and undertaken 5 School-level teaching projects. Teachers have published a total of 218 scientific research papers, 23 of which are published in SCI journals and 195 in Chinese core journals.
