The Jikei University School of Medicine had its origins in the Sei-I-Kwai Koshujo (Sei-I-Kwai Medical Training School) founded on May ‚P, 1881, by Kanehiro Takaki (1849-1920), who is famous for proposing the dietary theory of beriberi and eradicating the disease from the Imperial Japanese Navy. From 1875 to 1881 Takaki studied as a naval cadet at London's Sst. Thomas's Hospital Medical School. 


The university administers the faculty of medicine, the graduate school for medical research, the three training schools for nurses, and the four attached hospitals. The faculty of medicine has two schools: the school of medicine and the school of nursing. All our institutions are engaged in education, research, and clinical service.
