Master's Degree Program

Share |

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 felds focused more on "humans".
