As of 2016, there are 80 universities in Japan, and the number of students enrolled in each grade is around 1.[2].. The number of medical students continued to increase due to the Cabinet decision of the "Medicine-free University Prefecture Elimination Plan" in 1973, but in 1982DoctorCapacity was curtailed to prevent overnumbering and remained unchanged at 2003 from 2007 to 7625[3].The competition rate of applicants for admission is high, and the average age of medical students is higher than that of other faculties.[Source required].

According to the income and expenditure reports released by each university, tuition income basically exceeds education expenses. The high tuition fees of private university medical schools are used to cover the deficit of university hospitals and research expenses in addition to educational expenses.private universityThe average amount of 6-year total payments from the Faculty of Medicine is about 3,300 million yen.[4]Is. The maximum amount isKawasaki Medical SchoolIt costs about 4,600 million yen to graduate from the medical school. On the other handJichi Medical UniversitySome universities, like this, offer almost no tuition fees if certain conditions are met after graduation.

At the time of graduationGraduation thesisIt will be completed by passing the "graduation exam" (with some exceptions).National Doctor ExamThe pass rate is often directly linked to the university evaluation,Faculty of Science,Faculty of EngineeringIt is said that the difficulty of promotion and graduation is higher than that of[5]..Therefore, in the medical department of the university medical schoolRepetitionThe problem has been discussed for a long time.In line with the current situation in which the number of medical students is increasing due to the establishment of regional frameworks in recent years, there is an increasing need for discussions again.At the time of admission to the Faculty of Medicine, despite the premise that those who can withstand both academic ability and physical strength are selected for the curriculum of the Faculty of Medicine and have started enrollment in the Faculty of Medicine as a student of the Faculty of Medicine, they will repeat the year within a few years after admission.Primary detentionIt is highly likely that medical students who do not have the qualifications to become doctors in the future, either academically or physically.Universities that admit admission can provide supplementary lessonsAdvancementWe are giving guidance for.From the point of view of the national tax that is levied on the medical school,penaltyAnd as much as possibleLower GradeでCareer guidanceIt is believed that doing so should also be considered.In particular, the medical department of private universities is very strict, and it is not uncommon for students who are unlikely to pass the national examination for medical practitioners to repeat a year without mercy, and because the tuition fee is very high.Drop outThere is no end to those who do it every year[6].

As of 2017, the youngest medical schoolInternational University of Health and WelfareIt was opened in 2017 (Heisei 29) at the Faculty of Medicine.

Also, in recent yearsLack of doctorsAgainst this background, there is a movement to consider establishing a medical school at a private university.Doshisha UniversityAnnounced in 2012 that it would aim to establish a medical school in collaboration with multiple local governments.[7].. However, in 2013, the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology announced thatGreat East Japan EarthquakeDoshisha University abandoned the establishment of a medical school because it took a policy to allow only one university located in the Tohoku region to establish a new university as reconstruction support.[8].. In the subsequent examination, the examination committee of the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology decided that the university would establish a new medical school.Tohoku Pharmaceutical UniversityIn 2016Tohoku Medical and Pharmaceutical UniversityA medical school was established.

Entrance exam

Pacific WarDuring the war, the Japanese government established a number of medical colleges to solve the shortage of clinicians, and in 1947 after the war.Basic Education LawとSchool education lawThe medical vocational school that met the standards was promoted to a university by the promulgation of, and was reorganized into 1952 medical colleges and medical schools in 46.At that time, there were medical schools at 19 national universities, 14 public universities, and 13 private universities, and the enrollment capacity was 2820.[9].High economic growth periodWhen entering, voices such as "1 prefecture, 1 medical college" and "10 doctors for 150 population" increased, and in 1970Akita UniversityStarting with the establishment of medical schools in Japan, the establishment of private medical schools has occurred rapidly, and since 1973, national medical schools have been newly established one after another in prefectures where medical schools have not been established, and all prefectures have medical schools.In 60, the capacity of the medical school reached 120, coupled with the increase in the capacity of the existing medical school from 1984 to 8280.[9]..Many of the top performers in science at this time were not aiming for medical school, and the top performers at that time wereFormer Imperial UniversityThere was a segregation between aspiring science and engineering faculties at the level and aspiring medical students at each university.Medical students at that time were moving nationwide in search of universities with a high probability of passing.[9].

In 1979Common first-stage examWas introduced, it was possible to take the exams of two universities until then.National former first and second term schoolsWas abolished, and one national and public university took the examination, and the number of applicants for the medical school dropped sharply.This effect is especiallyHirosaki University,Kagoshima UniversityIt was remarkable in the old second term school. With the introduction of the A / B schedule continuous system in 1987, the reduction of the number of elective subjects in the science society, and the introduction of a pre-application system for applying for the secondary exam before the common primary exam, the number of medical school examinees recovered, mainly in eastern Japan. I showed you.After that, the number of applicants decreased due to the repeated changes in the examination system at national and public universities, but the medical school was not significantly affected, and the number of applicants for private medical schools increased as a joint application destination for national and public universities.[9].

In recent yearsYoungerbyCollege entrance examinationSimplification of[10],Away from scienceHas been pointed out,Bubble burstLong afterrecessionBankruptcy of the company due toRestructuringThe number of applicants for medical school has increased significantly due to the influence of the above, especially in the medical school of national and public universities.Entrance examinationIs becoming more difficult, and its popularity remains high even after the economic recovery. National and public university medical schools are extremely popular with aspiring medical students (especially) because tuition fees are overwhelmingly cheaper than private university medical schools (about 50 a year).Former Imperial University(Old Imperial University)Three major metropolitan areasNational and Public University School of MedicineTokyo UniversityComparable or better than science class XNUMX and science class XNUMXEntrance exam difficultyIs often said[11], Even in the medical school of the non-former imperial university in the region, it is said that the difficulty level is comparable to or equivalent to the above-mentioned science class XNUMX and XNUMX of the University of Tokyo.However, it is said that the difficulty of science class XNUMX and XNUMX of the University of Tokyo and the difficulty of the medical school of national and public universities cannot be simply compared because the vectors of difficulty are completely different).In addition, it is said that the higher the tuition fee of a university, the higher the entrance examination difficulty level, and conversely, the higher the tuition fee, the easier the entrance examination difficulty level (the high tuition fee and the entrance examination difficulty level are inversely proportional). ing[12].. Regarding the level of entrance examinations for medical schools since 1990, the difference in deviation between the former medical college and the former imperial university / former medical college tends to narrow at national and public universities, and overall at private universities. An increase in the deviation value is seen[9].

Most universities have the same questions as other faculties,Center examIn both the secondary exams, the minimum passing score and entrance exam deviation value are extremely high compared to other faculties of the same university, and it is called the most difficult faculty (department).Furthermore, from the 2006 entrance examination, some universities have to take all three science subjects (chemistry, physics, and biology) at the medical school of the national public university, but the consistency with the high school curriculum has been reviewed and as of 3. ThenKyushu UniversityIt is possible to take two science subjects at all national and public universities except[9]..In addition, until the 2016 entrance examination, Kyushu University School of Medicine, University of Tokyo Science Class XNUMX, and Kinki University School of Medicine were three schools that did not conduct interviews at all medical schools, including national and private medical schools.[9]However, interviews are now required at all universities and entrance examination dates.

After graduation

From 2004 onwards, when the trainees themselves became able to select the training destination for postgraduate clinical training, the number of applicants for hospitals in urban areas where the training contents tend to be enriched began to concentrate.[13].. For this reason, an upper limit was set for the number of people by region from 2010.[13].. In 2016, 42.6% of the trainees were trained at university hospitals and 58.3% were community hospitals.[14].

Medical School in Europe and America


As of 2014, Germany has 37 medical schools, of which 35 are state schools and 2 are private schools.[24].


In Germany1388ToHeidelberg UniversityLeading the world in the medical field with the start of medical education in[24]..But German medical educationAuthoritarianismIt is said that it was targeted and tightly closed, and it has been pointed out that it is necessary to emulate medical education in the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, the Netherlands, etc. after the war.[24].

Medical education reform was carried out and the regulation law on doctor's license came into effect in 2003.[24].


Germany's medical school is a 6-year system but a semester system is adopted instead of a grade system[24].. The 6-year curriculum is mostly 2 years for basic science, 3 years for clinical medicine, and 1 year for clinical training.[24].. Many semester systems are two semesters, the first semester and the second semester.[24].

The German national examination for doctors is the first examination (at the end of 1 years) and the second examination (the written examination at the end of 2 years and the oral examination at the end of 2 years).[24].

Entrance exam

Various selection methods are used for entrance examinations of German medical schools[24].

  • Abitur -About 2% of medical schools are selected from the top performers of Abitur[24].
  • University-specific selection system-Approximately 6% of medical schools are selected by document screening and interview examinations for each university.[24].
  • Waiting time system-Approximately 2% of medical schools are selected by a system that waits for a chance to enter the medical school while participating in nursing practice and civic activities using a selection method peculiar to Germany.[24].

The United Kingdom

There are 2011 medical schools in the UK as of 32[25].. EspeciallyEur-lex.europa.eu eur-lex.europa.euHas adopted pioneering medical education and is considered to be one of the leading regions in the world for medical education, and the University of Dundee is said to be a mecca for medical education.[25].

Most British medical schools are five-year, but there are also four-year courses for undergraduate students and six-year courses that emphasize basic life science education.[25].

After graduating from medical school, in order to be officially registered as a doctor, it is necessary to temporarily register with the General Medical Council (GMC) and take two years of clinical training.[25]..After that, it will be divided into a course to take a 3-year program as a family doctor (GP) and a course to take a program of 5 to 7 years as a specialist, and after completion, you will be officially registered as a doctor by receiving a certificate.[25].

The United States of America

Medical education reforms took place in the United States from 1910 to 1920, and medical schools were rated in three stages: A, B, and C.[26].. At the same time, the Medical Education Council was established and later recognized as an advisory body to the Ministry of Education.[26].. And many medical colleges that are unlikely to meet the new standards of medical education were closed during this period.[26].

From 2023, the qualifications for the National Examination for Medical Practitioners in the United States will be limited to graduates of medical schools certified by the American Medical College Association (AAMC) or the World Federation of Medical Education (WFME).[26].
