This study explores the history of Taiwanese doctors who went to Japan doctorless villages in Postwar Period. The preliminary results of this study are to understand the background factors of Taiwanese doctors going to Japan doctorless villages in Postwar Period, including how Taiwan’s political and economic factors contributed to the cessation of Taiwanese physicians’ outflows, and Japan’s problem of doctorless villages caused by the implementation of the National Health Insurance Law. Local governments were actively coming to Taiwan to recruit doctors for pulling factors. The breakthrough in the collection and application of historical materials in this study is to conduct a field survey in three places where Taiwan doctors are recruited the most, including the Northeast Aomori and Iwate counties, and Hokkaido. Therefore, this study was able to understand the pipeline and reality of Japanese local government recruitment of Taiwanese doctors in the late 1960s, and the development, influence and significance of Taiwanese doctors after going to doctorless village for medical practice. There are two aspects to the influence of the doctor's personal level. One is the promotion or expansion of the medical profession, and the other is the mobility and development opportunities of family members to Japan. At the national level, from the 1970s to the 1980s, Taiwanese doctors went to Japan for local government to practice medicine for one or two decades. They contributed a lot to the medical care in remote areas of Japan, and also maintained the civil relations between Taiwan and Japan, as well as strengthening the civil exchanges between two countries.
