The Juntendo Medical Society has implemented various activities, together with Juntendo Medical Journal established in 1875, to “promote medical research, encourage members of the society to learn from each other and improve their knowledge, and contribute to the advancement of medicine”. There are approximately 3,000 members including academic staff, alumni, clinical residents, graduate students, research students of the Juntendo University Faculty/Graduate School of Medicine, and people outside the university.

Its principal activities include publication of the “Juntendo Medical Journal 順天堂醫事雑誌”, organization of Triannual Meetings of the Juntendo Medical Society, and management of Juntendo University’s open lectures: Health Topics for Tokyoites. Juntendo Medical Journal, a medical journal published six times a year, receives a number of scientific papers submitted by Japanese and foreign researchers. In the triannual meetings, professors and young researchers of the Faculty of Medicine present their research findings. Health Topics for Tokyoites are held biannually in which notable professors and researchers introduce recent information on medicine and health care to the public.

The year 2018 has marked the 180th anniversary of Juntendo University, a university and graduate school for general health, establishing Faculty of Health Science in 2019 and consisting of five faculties, three graduate school courses, and six affiliated hospitals with a total of 3,424 beds. The university has advanced markedly and contributed to society through the implementation of education, research, and medicine.

Along with the progress of the university, the Juntendo Medical Society has been involved in medical research and social activities. All issues of Juntendo Medical Journal, the oldest medical journal in Japan, have been digitalized, and the issues published in 2014 or later are completely in English, published for readers across the world. We will continue to contribute to the progress of medicine and medical care for human health while respecting the tradition of Juntendo.

We appreciate your continued support of our activities.
