Welcome to Toho University Faculty of Medicine Visiting International Student Elective Program webpage. We run an Elective Program offering 2-12 week clinical elective placements for international students who are in their final year of medical school.
We value diversity and inclusion and this program has a clear aim to add value to elective clerkships by exposing students to an international perspective on medicine.
TUFM dormitory locates within a walking distance of Omori Hospital; however, only a limited number of rooms is available for international students. If there is no vacancy, students need to make arrangements for accommodation by themselves. Please note that Toho University is unable to provide recommendations for any particular private housing facility around the campus and is not responsible for the contents of external websites linked to these facilities. Students are advised to examine the terms and conditions of a contract carefully before making reservations.
Please complete and submit the Application Form, application fee, and other required documents six to three months prior to the first date of your desired training period. Please note that incomplete applications will not be processed.
If you participate in the program under the Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) between your institution and Toho University Faculty of Medicine, you are considered a MOU student.
