In 2022, it will be 150 years since the hospital that has developed into our present organization was founded. Moreover, 2021 will see the 100th anniversary of the issuance of our university title. The riches of our university are however not limited to being one of Japan’s few medical schools with a long history and tradition.
Fundamental to our university is the education of professionals who have advanced specialized knowledge and respond to developments in medicine and care. In addition to the education of nurses and doctors, we continue to develop the curriculum of our graduate school, and foster our cooperation with the government and local enterprises.
The biggest appeal point of our university is the research strength of staff and students nurtured in our region. With the research results we aim to contribute to society and connect with the next generation. The university wishes to put great efforts into supporting research.
With our research as a base we offer world top level medicine to our region, by introducing advanced medical equipment at our hospital, diagnostics, and treatment for all stages of disease. We give back to our region by improving the level of care, and offer skills and services in all medical departments.
With an attitude of not giving up, and all taking the lead we will make the future of Kyoto Prefectural University of Medicine.
