HMU's history dates back to 1993 with the merging of two private medical schools, the Haiqiang Medical Vocational School (founded in 1947) and the Medical College of Hainan University (founded in 1948). In 1949, the school was rebuilt as the Hainan Medical Vocational School and later became the Medical Department of Hainan University.
