The health sciences major of the Graduate School of Health Sciences (Master's course) is built on an organic integration of the 4 areas of clinical examination, nursing science, medical radiology, and rehabilitation. The objective of the program is to produce healthcare professionals who are able to exercise intellectual leadership both domestically and internationally as specialists with practical and professional skills, a rich human nature, and a broad ability to explore research subjects.
Medical professions are growing more diverse, and mutual understanding and cooperation are required between different professions. In response to this, we have launched a general program to teach a wide range of common health science subjects including medical care and health. We also created the Health Sciences Seminar program as a required credit program. This program is designed to encourage the students to widen their interdisciplinary perspective and expose them to the latest topics. We invite experts in various fields to give speeches. This Master's course aims to develop the morality to respect human life, the qualities of compassion and patience, and the knowledge and skills of medical care and medicine. Based on these objectives, the Course trains specialists who, as medical professionals, are capable of providing integrated medical care. More specifically the Course strives to train:
- individuals with strong learning strategies who can grasp both the current state and future vision of the area of medical care or medicine that is most closely related to the profession they aim to pursue
- individuals with rich experience and practical skills who understand the specific nature of medical care through studying in an area closely related to medical care as a practical science
- individuals, as researchers, educators, or high-level experts, who can improve themselves and also think logically and possess basic intellectual skills to keep up with the development of academic research in the fields of medicine and medical care
