Graduate Education – School of Public Health

As the increasing society’s need for health and medical care grows more sophisticated and complex , there are various aspects that cannot be solved by only conventional medicine. The School of Public Health encompasses interdisciplinary education and research in the fields of medicine, pharmacy, life science, mathematical science, computer science, social science, and humanities.
Kyoto University Graduate School of Medicine’s School of Public Health not only has the oldest traditional values in Japan, but it is also the most fulfilling (with Japan’s largest full-time faculty number), and the most advanced, being the only one in Japan offering a PhD in Public Health.
