University information

Founding Spirit

Tokyo Women’ s Medical University originated from Tokyo Women’ s Medical School, which was commenced in 1900. YOSHIOKA Yayoi, the founder of Tokyo Women’ s Medical University, adopted the concept of the primary mission of Tokyo Women’ s Medical School as the founding spirit when she newly established Tokyo Women’ s Medical College (TWMC) in 1952. The primary mission was to educate students to become physicians having excellent knowledge/skills and a mindset to serve sick people, so as to develop women who are mentally as well as economically independent and would contribute to the society. At the time of establishment, according to the university guiding principle, “we intend to nurture female medical professionals who contribute to the society and foster their professionalism through the pursuit of deep understanding of medical sciences.”

In 1998, the School of Nursing was newly established for nurturing healthcare professionals based on the founding spirit. As a school for those who intend to practice medicine, our current mission is to give education to nurture medical professionals and medical/nursing researchers who have refined their personalities through the process of mastering knowledge/skills for practicing best medicine. Always bearing the founding spirit in mind, we are providing academic education to nurture female medical professionals who can contribute to the society.
