Outline

Master's Degree Program

The Master's Degree Program is a two-year course, established for university graduates other than those in the School of Medicine Medical Course, who wish to pursue research in medicine and life sciences. The purpose is not to train clinical practitioners; the enrolled students come from a variety of academic backgrounds, including physics, pharmacology and engineering. On successfully completing the course, students advance to the Doctoral Degree Program, take up R&D posts in companies or research institutes, etc., or become active as high-level specialist professionals in hospitals. While there are courses offering research on life sciences in physics curricula at various universities (including YCU), the characteristic of the Graduate School of Medicine is that it handles research fields focused more on "humans".

Doctoral Degree Program

The aim of the four-year Doctoral Degree Program is to equip graduates from the School of Medicine Medical Course (or, in other cases, completers of the Master’s Degree Program or the Doctoral Degree Stage I Program) with practical ability in high-level medical research, enabling them to contribute to the ceaseless advance of medicine. The Program covers a wide range of research fields, including genome and gene science, molecular and cell biology, neuroscience, immunology, cancer science, regenerative science and social sciences. Students learn the most up-to-date methodology and research techniques, and research the mechanisms of life phenomena, development of new therapies and drugs, methods of disease prevention, and so on. This Program features collaborative graduate study with Yokohama National University, the Pharmaceuticals and Medical Devices Agency (PMDA), the National Institute of Radiological Sciences and RIKEN, to further advance our research.
