Young Leaders’ Program at Nagoya University is one-year Master's degree course in Healthcare Administration. Young Leaders’ Program (YLP) which aims to foster the development of future national leaders in Asian and other countries is one of the Japanese Government Scholarship Student systems and it should help form a network among national leaders, contributing to the establishment of friendly relationships and improved policy planning among Asian and other countries including Japan. Four universities are designated as host universities for the Young Leaders’ Program: Nagoya University (Healthcare Administration Course), Kyushu University (Law Course), Hitotsubashi University (Business Management Course) and National Graduate Institute for Policy Studies (Public Administration Course / Local Government Course). Applicants for YLP must be of a national of aforementioned 13 participating countries and a college degree holder or higher, in the field of medicine or science. (Participating Countries: Bangladesh, Cambodia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyz, Laos, Malaysia, Mongolia, Myanmar, Poland, Romania, Thailand, Uzbekistan, and Vietnam). Recruiting and screening procedure for YLP is totally different from that of other Doctoral / Master courses at Nagoya University, Graduate School of Medicine.
The curriculum is suitable for rearing future national leaders in the field of healthcare administration it seeks to learn from Japan's unique and important role in bridging the gap between Western and Asian countries and their willingness to maintain the lasting friendship with Japan and other participating countries through various activities. The curriculum is also designed to demonstrate how modern Japan improved national living standards at a comparatively lower cost within half a century by ways of introducing the concept of Western methodology and adjusting it to Japanese culture and social system, and what the actual mechanism of Healthcare Administration is. Using this knowledge, the courses pursue the question of "what is the most desirable method of resolving the respective problems concerning Healthcare Administration for the country concerned". Another feature is that we place great emphasis upon writing Master's Thesis in the curriculum. Besides writing Master's Thesis in English, students are requested to submit the manuscript of their Master’s Thesis to an international journal in English and making a presentation at the Master's Thesis defense meeting. By implementing these activities, the curriculum aims to help students obtain what is necessary for writing publishable papers and conducting presentations of their papers. Twenty three papers have been published through 2003-2008 Academic Years and more papers are expected to be accepted in journals. Many graduates take a leading role in contributing to the development of healthcare systems in their countries by utilizing what they learned in Japan.
