About The Jikei University School of Medicine

Jikei University School of Medicine (Gakko Hojin Jikei Daigaku Tokyo Jikeikai Ika Daigaku) is a private university located in Minato, Tokyo, Japan.

It was founded in 1881 by Kanehiro Takaki, a physician who came up with the dietary theory for treating beriberi in the Imperial Japanese Navy. His studies at London’s Saint Thomas’s Hospital Medical School inspired him to create a similar institution in Japan. It has been running in its present form since 1951.

Jikei's faculty of medicine is split into the school of medicine and the school of nursing. It offers courses in anaesthetics, cardiac surgery, dermatology, emergency medicine, intensive care unit, neurology, endocrinology, oncology, gynaecology and obstetrics, orthopaedic surgery, radiology, rehabilitation medicine, surgery, urology and other disciplines.

Jikei has four university hospitals - a main hospital, Katsushika Medical Center, as well as the Daisan Hospital in Chofu Komae, the Kashiwa Hospital in Chiba and the Jikei University School of Medicine Triton Clinic in Harumi.

With 2,700 beds and 7,500 outpatients per day, Jikei University Hospitals constitute one of the largest educational hospital systems in the country.

There is also a graduate school for medical research and three training schools for nurses.

The university also has an exchange programme with King’s College London.

Having access to Tokyo as a student is often a transformative experience. You will have access to the culture of one of the most dynamic cities in the world and, if you learn the local tricks, you will be able to do this at a lower living cost.
