About St Marianna University School of Medicine

St Marianna University School of Medicine is a private university in the city of Kawasaki, Japan.

In addition to medical studies, the school offers a degree in comparative religious studies.

The university is the first in Asia to be approved as a medical centre for the FIFA world soccer association, as the medical provider for the Japan national football team.

There is also a nursing junior college and a graduate school.

The curriculum consists of initial practical training in the first three years and clinical clerkship in the latter three years.

The Centre for the Promotion of Intellectual Enterprise pursues partnerships with research institutions and companies at home and abroad in areas ranging from genome and biomedical sciences to digital technology.
