Our Organization is an organic system unified as an educational and research institution devoted to medicine and medical services.
Since its foundation, Meiji University of Integrative Medicine has been steadily achieving the aim of its foundation, namely “Creation of the Highest Institution of Learning for Oriental Medicine in Japan”, setting up affiliated facilities for education, research, and clinical medicine one by one, such as the Research Institute of Oriental Medicine, University Hospital, and the Clinic of Oriental Medicine in a well-planned manner.
The three schools of Acupuncture and Moxibustion, Health Sciences and Medical Care, and Nursing Science, and the Graduate School of Acupuncture and Moxibustion with Doctorate and Masters Courses make it possible to construct a curriculum for nurturing high-grade clinical abilities and providing high-quality academic studies, because they have a direct connection with these medical facilities, like the above-mentioned University Hospital.
The Graduate School of Acupuncture and Moxibustion aims at training human resources with high-degree learning, developed from the undergraduate course, and provides two courses: Clinical Course for the acquisition of advanced clinical abilities and inquiry into clinical possibilities (the first half of the doctoral course [masters course]) and the Research Course for the investigation and clarification of the effectiveness of Acupuncture and Moxibustion (the first half of the doctoral course [masters course] and the second half [doctoral course]).
The learning environment is impeccable, including an affiliated library, allowing students to devote themselves to their studies, and helping them to answer questions and solve problems that they encounter in the course of their daily learning and studies. Moreover, the number of teaching staff is incomparably outstanding and surpasses the expected ordinary standards. The University, with its required substantial systems, organically integrates learning with research and makes every effort to meet various demands and needs.
