Although the history of Dokkyo Medical University is not long, its parent university Dokkyo Gakuen was established in Tokyo in 1883 as the Doitsugaku Kyokai Gakko under the sponsorship of Nishi Amane, Yamagata Aritomo, and Katsura Taro. Doitsugaku Kyokai Gakko later became Dokkyo Gakuen. After World War II, Dokkyo Gakuen established a junior and senior high school in 1946.
In 1964, Dokkyo Gakuen established Dokkyo University in Saitama for its 80-year anniversary. Subsequently, Dokkyo Gakuen established a medical school, Dokkyo Medical University in 1973 in Mibu, Tochigi. Its main hospital and Koshigaya Hospital of Dokkyo Medical School are the center of clinical medicine in northern area of Kanto.
