    Hello everyone!

    The Japan Times is reporting that Tokyo Medical University discriminated against female applicants by deducting points off their entrance exam scores. This was apparently done to keep the ratio of female students at around 30%. Apparently, the medical school was worried about a physician shortage at hospitals affiliated with the university and felt female doctors were more likely to drop out of the workforce to focus on raising children.

    Currently, Japan’s education ministry has asked the university to report on how it has been selecting its medical school students and is awaiting the school’s response.

    Best of luck with your applications!
