The Graduate Courses of Integrated Reseach TrainingThe Graduate School of Medicine (four-year doctoral course) previously consisted of six majors, i.e. physiology, pathology, internal medicine, surgery, molecular medicine, and neuroscience. Students were assigned to the research laboratories of each of the different specialties, where they received one-on-one training from instructors. Starting in fiscal 2005, however, in addition to the education offered through the original research fields, the Graduate School now offers 12 courses to accommodate expanding needs for intensive research that go beyond the framework of traditional specialties, in tandem with the remarkable development of science and technology in the fields of medicine and life science. The Graduate Courses of Integrated Research Training offer broad-based, systematic, integrated education on the latest trends in medicine.

Promotion Plan for the Platform of Human Resource Development for CancerCancer is the leading cause of death in Japan. Because it is now becoming a serious issue affecting the lives and health of Japan’s citizens, in FY2012 the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology established the “Promotion Plan for the Platform of Human Resource Development for Cancer” to foster medical professionals specializing in cancer capable of practicing advanced cancer treatments and cancer research with the aim of promoting the improvement of cancer treatment in Japan. Kyoto University, Mie University, Shiga University of Medical Science, Osaka Medical College, and Kyoto Pharmaceutical University have launched the “Plan for Cultivating Cancer Researchers and Medical Professionals to Lead the Next Generation” and are cooperating to develop top cancer researchers and medical professionals.
Kyoto University is focusing on developing leading researchers of cancer to create new cancer treatments in the hope of contributing to the development of future cancer care with the aim of cultivating human resources that can undertake innovations in the next generation of cancer research and cancer care, and human resources capable of developing new diagnostic techniques, therapies, and care methods.
