OVERVIEW

"Tottori University Faculty of Medicine was founded in March 1945 as Yonago Medical College, which later became Yonago Medical University in February of 1948. In May 1949, we celebrated the founding of Tottori University Faculty of Medicine following promulgation of the National University Establishment Act. Since then, the Faculty of Medicine has steadily expanded, with the establishment of the Graduate School of Medical Sciences in 1958, the University Brainstem Disorder Research Facility in 1962, and the University Steroid Research Facility in 1966.The Sanin region, where Tottori University Faculty of Medicine is located, has one of the largest aging populations in the country. With this regional characteristic in mind, we teach advanced medicine and cutting-edge treatments, and train individuals to put knowledge into practice. We aim to raise independent and innovative physicians who can play a significant role in medical communities globally as well as locally."
