The goal of the Medical Science program of the Kyoto Prefectural University of Medicine is to cultivate students to be capable to individually conduct advanced research, and to promote highly-advanced medical technologies.


About the program

The Medical Science program of the Kyoto Prefectural University of Medicine is designed for students with a strong orientation towards medicine from disciplines other than medicine, such as Science, Pharmacology and Engineering. During the two year Master, education in the core of medicine, and the opportunity to develop an individual specialization academically are offered.

The Integrated Medical Science PhD program is primarily for students with a degree in medicine, dentistry, pharmacology, veterinary medicine or students with a Masters in medicine. However it is possible for students with a Master’s degree from a field of study close to medicine, agriculture, engineering, acupuncture or art to get accepted.  

During the four year program there is a highly specialized instruction based on the individual participants. The program thus offers a large degree of freedom.
