Izumo campus was originally a medical school called Shimane medical university before integrated with Shimane university, so this school has only two courses (to be a doctor or nurse). You may think that the university itself is very small. However, new hospital ward was opened four years ago and it has a lot of latest medical devices. Shimane university gives priority to community healthcare and has affiliate hospitals all over Shimane.
