For 117 years since its founding in 1900, Tokyo Women's Medical University
Medical School has been graduating a large number of female doctors. Our
mission is to carry out good education, profound research and sincere medical
care, based on the philosophy of "Sincerity and Compassion".
This mission statement is the enduring legacy of the founder, Yayoi Yoshioka,
and 116 years later still inspires us at Tokyo Women's Medical University.
We have been striving to deliver cutting edge medical care together with
preventive medicine and healthcare for everyone. In 2011 we introduced
a revised curriculum, and in 2012 we were highly evaluated by an international
team of inspectors, based on what is called “global standards”.
We were awarded a high standing which compared favorably with other outstanding
medical universities around the world. This is the first such commendation
to be awarded in Japan and we are proud of our ability to compete internationally.
Our graduates will be ready to serve the global society wherever they are
We at Tokyo Women's Medical University Medical School aim to maintain the
highest standard of education so that our graduates will continue offering
the very best of modern medical science delivered to their patients now
and in the future.
