Juntendo was originally founded in 1838 as a Dutch School of Medicine at a time when Western medical education was not yet embedded as a normal part of Japanese society.   With the creation of Juntendo, the founders hoped to create a place where people could come together with the shared goal of helping society through the powers of medical education and practices.  Their aspirations led to the establishment of Juntendo Hospital, the first private hospital in Japan.  Through the years the institution's experience and perspective as an institution of higher education and a place of clinical practice has enabled Juntendo University to play an integral role in the shaping of Japanese medical education and practices.  Along the way the focus of the institution has also expanded, now consisting of six undergraduate programs and six graduate programs, the university specializes in the fields of health and sports science, nursing health care and sciences, international liberal arts and health science, as well as medicine. Today, Juntendo University continues to pursue innovative approaches to international level education and research with the goal of applying the results to society.
