Nippon Igakukou expanded to meet the requirements of Senmon Gakkourei, (the Technical Schools Act of 1903) and changed its name to Shiritsu Nippon Igaku Senmon Gakkou, an endowed school whose purpose was to produce doctors.
In accordance with Daigakurei (the Universities Act of 1918), Nippon Igaku Senmon Gakkou became Nippon Ika Daigaku (Nippon Medical School), accredited to give tertiary education together with a pre-university course.
The campus for the pre-university course was moved to Kosugi, Nakahara Ward in Kawasaki. (The original school building was destroyed during the War. The present Shin Maruko Campus was built on the site.)
