Graduate students who’ve completed their Master’s Programs start their career as specialists with advanced skills, or they pursue a doctorate.
After completing the Master’s Program, students can decide whether to enroll for the Doctoral Program, toward becoming highly skilled researchers or finding employment as medical professionals in society.
(As of April 2016)
It is desirable that students who have completed their Master’s Programs pursue a doctorate, because they are still growing as students and researchers. Examination/admission fees are not required from students who continue their studies and research as doctoral students.
To train future researchers, outstanding students who have completed a Master’s Program at the Hokkaido University Graduate School of Medicine and are pursuing a doctoral degree are employed as strategic research assistants (SRAs).
Faculty members of the Graduate School of Medicine help students find employment.
