Dear Students,
Students from throughout the world have been drawn to RMU and motivated by the university’s culture of academic freedom. Honing their skills and knowledge through good-natured competition and mutual encouragement, many of the students have become world-leading scholars and researchers in medical fields, providing patients with innovative treatments and sharing their discoveries with society.

RMU is devoted to seeking remedies and developing human resources that can bring hope and relief to those suffering from ailments and illnesses. This mission entails the cultivation of broad perspectives, profound knowledge, and advanced technology. RMU endeavors to cultivate human resources with deep intellectual curiosity, who can develop new values through practices based on astute perception, and who have the insight required to cast light on issues that are not yet understood. I believe that it is necessary for such people to maintain an attitude of sincerity, and not to be deterred by failures and setbacks, but persevere with conviction to address unresolved issues.

RMU also offers several unique education programs, such as its MD researcher program, in which students engage in research and another unique offering in which students engage in various forms of independent study with an emphasis on research. RMU also offers an MD / PhD course for students with a strong aptitude for cutting-edge research. This system was instituted for students with high aptitude for research, in keeping with the traditions of RMU.

RMU values students’ autonomy and encourages them to participate in seminars and research at laboratories of interest.

RMU also provides higher degree programs for nationally certified medical and healthcare practitioners, such as nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists, and clinical laboratory technologists. In response to the rapid development of medicine in recent years, however, RMU has reorganized the Advanced Nursing Sciences Course, Advanced Rehabilitation Sciences Course, and Multidisciplinary Medical Sciences Course.

The exit credit examinations systems for all of the courses are unique, and students can select their preferred course after enrolling at the university and experiencing some of the work entailed for each course. Students who already have a clear idea of their intended career path can enrol in their preferred course directly through a special admission system. The Multidisciplinary Medical Sciences Course provides students with opportunities to engage in research.

The most important mission of RMU is to cultivate world-leading medical and health practitioners in a way that respects the students’ autonomy.

Through their studies, RMU hopes that students can enhance their skills and abilities to become world-leading human resources. In keeping with RMU’s long-standing traditions, RMU will spare no effort in providing the support our students need.

Thank you.
