What is iPHISEM

Program for Human Integrative Science and Education of Mind (PHISEM) is a University-wide Educational Program in The University of Tokyo supported by UTokyo Institute for Diversity & Adaptation of Human Mind (UTIDAHM). UTIDAHM was established in 2015 to promote interdisciplinary collaboration studies for human brain and mind and consists of seven faculties: the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences, Graduate School of Medicine, Graduate School of Humanities and Sociology, Graduate School of Education, Graduate School of Law and Politics, the Graduate School of Science, and Graduate School of Pharmaceutical Sciences. PHISEM also provides interdisciplinary education programs for the undergraduate and graduate students from 2016. As academic members in UTIDAHM and PHISEM have already provided international internship programs in the scheme of their faculties, we start to provide an international program for promoting undergraduate and graduate students in universities abroad to learn interdisciplinary approach for understanding human brain and mind.
