As its name indicates, Gakken Medical Shujunsha is a combination of the Medical Publishing Division at Gakken Co., Ltd, a publisher of nursing books, and Shujunsha Co., Ltd., which published medical books. The new company is active in several medical and medical treatment areas, including basic medicine, clinical medicine, nursing, and nursing care. This marks a new start in total medical publishing.
Although medicine and the medical treatment system are different in every country, it can be argued that people and illnesses are the same the world over. One of our goals is to use information and communications technology to make advanced medical knowledge from Japan available to the worldwide market. By doing so, we hope to break the language barrier and distribute information that supports medical advances across the globe.
