Message from the Dean

In our Graduate School of Medicine, various research is being conducted in a wide range of medical areas, including basic medical research to understand the mechanisms of diseases, clinical medical research to prevent and treat diseases, and nursing research to support people's health. These research activities are highly evaluated in various fields through information exchange and research collaboration with domestic and international research institutions/researchers.

The essence of research activities, the "creation of knowledge", plays a crucial role in solving many problems in modern society. Through these research activities, we aim to enhance the value of Yokohama City University and contribute to society.

On the other hand, the speed of progress in modern science, technology, and information science is astonishing. The same is true of medicine and its related fields of research. Under these circumstances, it is not easy to properly assess the accuracy and reliability of information on the various challenges we face. Nevertheless, it is vital for us to do so. To this end, it is of the utmost importance to have the experience of discovering, creating, and disseminating meaningful information or new knowledge to the world, rather than simply being a recipient of information.

Research life in Graduate School is a valuable opportunity for students to enhance their scientific literacy through the experience of creating such new knowledge. It is the mission of our Graduate School to help students understand research ethics, and master practical research methods to discover/create new knowledge in basic medicine, clinical medicine, and nursing science under the guidance of our distinguished faculty members.
