UNIVERSITY AND HOSPITALS
About: Basic Philosphy | Nagasaki University School of MEDICAL SCIENCES
The founder of Nagasaki University School of Medicine, Pompe van Meerdervoort started Japan’s first patient-oriented medical practice in Nagasaki and established modern western medicine education in our country.
We have adopted his words
“The physician should realize the nature of his vocation, once he has made his choice, he is accountable to the suffering, not to himself. If it is not his wish, then he should choose another profession.” as our founding philosophy and aim to train doctors and medical professionals equipped with deep medical knowledge, rich creativity and high moral.
To achieve this goal, we provide education with strong emphasis on
  1. overall understanding of basic and clinical medical knowledge (to learn medicine)
  2. training medical creativity (to learn science)
  3. establishing social responsibilities and personalities as doctors (to learn human)
