 In 2019, Shizuoka University and Hamamatsu University School of Medicine agreed to merge into one corporation and two universities.After integrating the two corporations, the plan is to establish two universities: a new university that integrates Shizuoka University Hamamatsu Campus and Hamamatsu Medical School, and Shizuoka University Shizuoka Campus.
