The history of Chiba University School of Medicine can be traced back to 1874, when its predecessor was founded as a private hospital through donations from the local community. In 1876 it became a prefectural institution with medical teaching facilities and was formally named the Chiba Public Hospital. In 1923 it became the Chiba Medical College, and in 1949 was incorporated into the School of Medicine at Chiba University. Alumni from this school have contributed greatly to the advancement of medicine in Japan.
Faculty members of the school belong to the Graduate School of Medicine and the University Hospital. Every year, 117 students are admitted to the School of Medicine, which requires six years of attendance.
