Tokyo Medical and Dental University is the only specialized life science university in Japan that has both undergraduate and graduate programs in medicine and dentistry. The undergraduate programs offered through the Faculty of Medicine and the Faculty of Dentistry prepare students to be medical doctors or dentists. Graduates of our graduate programs in Medical and Dental Sciences, Health Sciences, Biomedical Sciences (Education Division), and Biomedical Sciences (Research Division) go into research (basic research and clinical-based research), education or a combination of such work. Many professors teach and conduct cutting-edge research in their Faculty or at one of our specialized research institutes, such as the Medical Research Institute and the Institute of Biomaterials and Bioengineering.
