In September 1904, businessman and philanthropist Tan Jiak Kim petitioned the government for the establishment of a medical school. The government agreed to the petition on the condition that the Chinese community raised a minimum of $71,000 to fund the school. The Chinese and non-European communities responded with enthusiasm, raising over $87,000 for the school, of which Tan contributed $12,000. The Straits and Federated Malay States Government Medical School was subsequently officially opened on 28 September 1905 by Governor Sir John Anderson in the buildings of the former Female Lunatic Asylum at Sepoy Lines.
