Characteristics and Strengths of Our Teaching Staff

Teaching staff with overseas clinical and educational experience

While the established standards for teaching staff numbers require us to have 160 teaching staff, we are scheduled to have 300 full-time teaching staff members by the year in which the School of Medicine opens. Of these full-time teaching staff members, we will employ approximately 30 non-Japanese instructors in order to create an environment befitting an international center of medicine.
As part of proactive efforts to employ non-Japanese teaching staff and Japanese teaching staff with extensive overseas clinical and educational experience, we advertised widely throughout Japan (except in the Tohoku region) and around the world. In addition to document-based screening the selection process involved the conducting of mock classes in English, as well as consideration of each candidate's character, educational background, employment history, academic and educational achievements, and so on. As our aim is to establish a School of Medicine to foster medical professionals with an international outlook, we placed particular emphasis on their clinical and educational track records in English-speaking environments as well as their clinical research track records. We will liberally deploy throughout every faculty and department teaching staff who are able to lecture in English, who have an international outlook, and have extensive overseas clinical and educational experience.
