Graduate School of Acupuncture and Moxibustion

Introduction of the Graduate Schools

The Graduate School of Meiji University of Integrative Medicine systematically and academically builds upon students’ understanding of the knowledge and skills acquired during the four years of the Faculty of Acupuncture and Moxibustion. As one would expect of a leading university, we treat the study of acupuncture and moxibustion as serious medical science, and offer the only doctorate course in this field Japan. As a research institute, we also offer some of the finest facilities and one of the best learning environments in the country. We welcome inquisitive students who wish to pursue the study of oriental medicine in a more academic and scientific manner. At Graduate School (in the Faculty of Acupuncture/ Moxibustion Research) we engage in the study of new medical practices in three specialist fields (Elementary Oriental Medicine, Elementary Acupuncture and Moxibustion, and Clinical Acupuncture and Moxibustion) and ten courses (including Elementary Oriental Medicine, Functional Morphology, and Clinical Acupuncture and Moxibustion). The main field, Clinical Acupuncture and Moxibustion, is divided into two sub-fields; Specialty I and Specialty II. Specialty I focuses on fostering advanced research skills, while Specialty II focuses on fostering advanced clinical skills. Both specialties are based on three subject areas of Acupuncture and Moxibustion, namely, Disease Control, Health, and the Elderly.
