Evolving practical studies
Let’s become professionals of medical science, health and sports!
In Japan, which has entered a super-aged society, we anticipate greater demand for personnel involved in medical care, mainly in care rehabilitation and measures for lifestyle diseases. For example, nurses and male nurses with high levels of expertise who can respond with advanced medical skills and technologies are certain to increase. Demand for speech therapists will increase not only in medical institutions but also in welfare facilities and personnel who have knowledge of both health and sports sciences and basic medical science will be required by various organizations, including companies, medical institutions and administrative agencies. The Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences develops these specialists who can contribute to the realization of a healthy life through the Department of Nursing, Department of Speech and Hearing Sciences and Disorders and Department of Health and Sports Sciences. A new campus and functional education facilities and instructors with extensive experience across a wide range of fields are waiting for you. We look for students who have studied at the University to lead the fields of medicine, welfare and sports in a collaborative effort.
What you can learn at Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences
The Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences has established three departments where you can professionally study “health” and “medicine” and develop knowledge, skills and mind necessary for assuming a leadership role in the fields of medicine, welfare and sports. We offer courses for national examination and qualification throughout the four years and provide special support to success in and acquisition of qualification for nurse national examination, speech therapist national examination and teacher’s license and health fitness instructors.
Voice of an Instructor
Let’s talk about anything, including clinical care and future.
Not only expertise and skills in nursing, but you can also acquire the “strength” to face the feelings of patients. We will develop your attitude for thinking what we can do for patients and handle situations proactively. Instructors with extensive practical experience will provide careful instruction. Feel free to tell us anything. We will respond to your will to study through our best efforts.
