Dongsan Medical Center established medical college with the ideology of pursuing treatment, education, missionary works and researches, and was merged with the Keimyung University in 1980. In 1982, it was renamed as the Keimyung University Dongsan Medical Center and grew into a medical center structure with Daegu Dongsan Medical Center, medical college, nursing college and Kyungju Dongsan Hospital under its umbrella.
