As of April 2001, Niigata University, Graduate School of Medical and Dental Science has been reorganized from Niigata University Faculty of Medicine and Dentistry.
With the approach of the Twenty-first Century, Niigata University gave priority to the graduate schools while reforming its systems of education and research.
This will be the third innovation of the Medical School since the Prefectural Medical College was founded in 1910. In 1922, the college was upgraded to university status and was renamed Niigata Medical College. It was further renovated in 1949, receiving the name Niigata University Faculty of Medicine.
For the Faculty of Dentistry, this is the first reformation since 1965.
The new graduate school is formulated along the lines of four courses - Molecular and Cellular Medicine, Biological Function and Medical Control, Community Disease Control, and Oral Life Science.
It is expected that these changes will solve the problems that the former graduate school was faced with.
The new system will enhance communication and collaboration between each course and department.
We will be able to provide students with the necessities to design new approaches for the rapidly expanding field of the life sciences.
By maintaining an open and flexible approach to all of our intellectual endeavors, we have been able to transform subdivided structural reforms into positives changes, expecting our students to play an essential role in an interdisciplinary field.
We are acutely aware of the need to educate medical professionals who are able to design new approaches and open up new medical frontiers in this era.
We promote further developments in the advanced life sciences, and consequently perform advanced treatment such as organ transplants and genetic treatment.
We intend to educate our students to achieve an essential role in preventive medicine, not only in the local community but also in global society.
The Graduate School of Medical and Dental Sciences is presently in the process of making great changes under a competitive environment based on a global standard.
To accomplish its mission, we are endeavoring to create a suitable environment, open to all citizens of the world regardless of nationality or age.
