This course is devoted to developing researchers who have a high level of specialized knowledge in dentistry and who act as global leaders and cooperate closely with their counterparts in other fields; educators who are rich in spirit and have highly developed expertise in devising and implementing effective educational strategies; highly specialized dental professionals who have uncompromising ethical views and a passionate interest in research; and opinion leaders who will act as pioneers in a new and more progressive era. 

This course is based on a well-balanced combination of coursework and research. Students will take various courses mainly in their first and second years, and will also be able to take seminars, special lectures and other programs geared for graduate students according to their interests (please see the description of subjects in the course work section). In order to attain comprehensive clinical knowledge and skills, students can also take clinical practice sessions offered by clinical sections. Students will engage in research work in the framework of a multiple-mentor system, which will enable them to get advice from instructors with different academic backgrounds. Progress meetings will be held every six months, as students work toward the goals of making presentations at international academic meetings and publishing papers in peer-reviewed international journals.
