Tokyo Medical and Dental University (TMDU) Undergraduate
Tokyo Medical and Dental University has undergraduate programs offered through the Faculty of Medicine and the Faculty of Dentistry. Graduate programs are in Medical and Dental Sciences, Health Sciences, Biomedical Sciences (Education Division), and Biomedical Sciences (Research Division). The undergraduate College of Liberal Arts and Sciences supports students as they learn a core curriculum before taking specialized courses in medicine or dentistry. To facilitate the undergraduate and graduate programs, TMDU has a teaching hospital attached to each Faculty. Moreover, the hospitals are located close to each other on campus, so there is much synergy as students, researchers and professors exchange information and work together in TMDU programs, institutes and projects. At TMDU, in both the undergraduate and graduate programs, we do our best to produce scientists who show intellectual curiosity in all that they do and who expend every possible effort in seeking the truth. These qualities are necessary for successfully engaging in clinical practice or research. Our university thus aims to not only train medical professionals who can meet the critical needs of society, but to also enable our graduates to become researchers and leaders who can do pioneering work in our internationalized world. We make it our mission to assure students that the university is not a place to study, but rather is a place where one learns how to study and how to think independently. To pursue these goals, TMDU has three educational philosophies: 1. To provide students with a broad education and a rich sensibility. 2. To educate creative people capable of diagnosing and solving problems independently. 3. To train medical professionals who have an international outlook.
