Educational Philosophy


Fostering future medical leaders

Fujita Health University School of Medicine is committed to training health care professionals who excel both in clinical settings and in research. The School offers a 6-year curriculum to develop your medical knowledge and skills as well as the attitudes and qualities desirable for medical practitioners.

  1. Education, attitudes, and thought processes required for a medical practitioner
  2. Basic human body structure and mechanisms
  3. Scientific analysis methods in and socio-medical understanding of medicine and medical care
  4. Diagnosis, clinical condition, and treatment of diseases
  5. Integration of medicine and medical care knowledge and practicum at a local or overseas hospital

are the segments of the curriculum in the School of Medicine.

Our outstanding learning environment includes the Lifelong Learning Center established in 2007 and Japan's first Skills Lab. At the Skills Lab, you can use simulators to hone your skills. We also have group study rooms available to 5th and 6th year students. Our data has confirmed that the use of group study rooms resulted in an increased rate of passing the National Examination for Medical Practitioners, perhaps because their use increased students' motivation.

The School of Medicine also offers the Adviser and Mentor Systems. In the Adviser System, we assign an instructor to each one of the students to help deal with any problems of school life. The Mentor System is available to 5th and 6th year students. In this system, their professors will continue to provide support through the 2-year initial clinical training after graduation and also the 2nd clinical training. We are one of the very few universities in Japan where the school continues to support its graduates.

Fujita Health University School of Medicine is fully committed to fostering future medical leaders.
