Graduate School of Medicine Division of Medicine

We aim to foster medical researchers with the prespective of the site

The Graduate School of Medicine has been reorganized from 5 majors to 1 major (Division of Medicine). Along with that, we reviewed the curriculum and reorganized five fields and one course in the specialized subjects. In each field or course, the mission is to achieve the purpose of human resource development. We have prepared curriculums in which you can learn a wide variety of research themes in order to meet the demands from society.

Overview of Division of Medicine

The field of Structural and Functional Medicine

We deal with the research related to the structure and function of normal living organisms in the Basic Medical Section, and have classes about five fields: "cell histology", "brain and neuroscience", "biochemistry and clinical medical science", "biodynamics", and "biomaterial chemistry". We aim to rain researchers in these fields.

The field of Basic Pathology

The field of Structural and Functional Medicine deal with the feild related to the structure and function of normal living organisms. On the other hand, the field of Basic Pathology deal with the field related to modification of pathophysiology and pathological structural in the pathological state of the Basic Medical Section. We have classes such as "Human Pathology and Diagnostic Pathology", "Neuropharmaceuticals" and "Infection Control Science" ,and aim to train researchers in these field. It also includes relatively new fields such as "Space Environmental Medicine," "Transplant Immunology" and "International Aspects of Infectious Diseasesinternational and Crisis Management."

The field of Social Health Medicine

We deal with the fields related to Social Medicine and health. In Social Medicine, resercher usually deals with hygiene, public health and forensic medicine. However, we deal with not only the conventional social medicine field, but also developing feild which link medicine and society. Therefore, you can learn subjects such as "Community Medicine" and "Clinical Trials" so the field name has been changed to the field of Social Health Medicine from the field of Social Medicine. We aim to foster researchers in these field.

The field of Organ System Pathology

We deals with the fields related to the academic and medical care system for each organ including internal medicine and surgical science in the conventional clinical medicine. The main subjects are internal medicine and surgical science, including "Pediatrics", "Dermatology", "Otorhinolaryngology", "Ophthalmology" etc. We aim to foster researchers in these field and support for students to acquire qualifications of specialists.

The field of Comprehensive Pathology

We deal with the field related to cross-cutting treatment regardless type of organ system. It is contrast with the feild of Organ System Pathology where reserchers care each organ.
Major subjects are "Psychosomatic Medicine", "Neuropsychiatry", "Rehabilitation Medicine", "Laboratory Medicine", "Anesthesiology", and "Emergency and Disaster Medicine" etc. We aim to foster researchers in these field and acquire qualifications of specialists.

Oncologist training course

You will practice cancer medical care that meets diverse needs in collaboration with multiple occupations and local medical facilities. We aim to foster advanced medical human resourses who leads cancer medical care in urban areas.

  1. Training of specialists for cancer pharmacotherapy
  2. Training of specialists for palliative medicine
  3. Practicing professional technique for cancer
