Juntendo University plays an integral role in the shaping of Japanese medical education and practices. Along the way the focus of the institution has also expanded – now consisting of four undergraduate programmes and three graduate programmes, the university specialises in the fields of health and sports science and nursing healthcare and sciences, as well as medicine.
