The history of the FUSPH can be traced back to 1920s. Dr. Yan Fuqing, the founder of Shanghai Medical College, paid special attention to public health education upon launching the college in 1927. In July 1928, Dr.Yan officially established the Department of Public Health at Shanghai Medical College where he served as the founding director and professor of public health.
The School of Public Health was established in 1952 and became the School of Public Health of Shanghai Medical University, in the 1980s. After Shanghai Medical University merged with Fudan University in April 2000, it was renamed the Fudan University School of Public Health (The FUSPH).
