Tokyo Medical University

Almost 100 years ago, in May 1916, almost 450 students from Japan Medical College (presently known as Japan Medical University) resigned en masse because of conflict with the administration, and set about trying to realize their own ideal place of study, working toward the establishment of a new school.

Established in 1916, Tokyo Medical University can now boast more than 100 years of tradition. The spirit of this school is enshrined in the words “Self-reliance and Self-study”. This describes the type of medical professional to which we aspire: one resolved to undertake honest self-appraisal, think for themselves, and ceaselessly pursue their studies.
