It's usually six (6) years. The Bachelor's/MD program is combined and taken directly after highschool. It's usually 2 years of general education followed by 4 years of med school, but all done at the same campus. There's a push to change it to the U.S. system of 4 + 4 with a separate application process for medical school after the bachelor's degree.Halitosis said:can someone pls tell me how many years does it take to graduate from japanese med or dent school? is it 7 or 8? thank you!
It is true the immigration is very tough there. I don't really know why, but it has always been (as much as I know) a homogenious population.happeepanda said:OOH! I really want to practice medicine in Japan as well! But I can't speak Japanese and my mother claims that immigration is very strict in Japan! She says that they do not want many people to come there from the US...
Is this true? Can anyone provide any advice for me??
Will I be more likely to be able to live in Japan if I study medicine there first??
