Nara Medical University, Japan
2015 marks the 70th anniversary for Nara Medical University. So perhaps it’s perfect timing for Nara Medical University to embark on a new journey, to challenge a new frontier. Over the next few years Nara Medical University will begin work on a new campus and a renewal of the facilities at the present campus. While educational and research facilities will be moved to the new campus, clinical and outpatient facilities will be housed in new facilities on the current campus. All of this will be achieved with the input of the surrounding community.
This is a “new frontier” not just for Nara Medical University but also for the people of Nara.
