Graduate School of Health and Welfare Sciences

Fostering high-level experts (researchers, school teachers, and other well-trained experts) in the field of healthcare research has become an important concern in modern society. We intend to train medical staff members, such as nurses, physiotherapists, occupational therapists, speech pathologists, orthoptists, and radiological technicians, to address this problem, and nurture in them power to see beyond their own domain and to plan interdisciplinary, cooperative works. In addition, in response to the new demands of the times, we train other specialists such as nurse practitioners, reproductive health assistance/embryo culture personnel, and midwives.

In the doctoral course, teachers who play an active part on the front lines of their field conduct thorough, one-on-one training.

Since 2006, we have been produced many competent, successful doctoral course graduates, and sent talented individuals into society, where they are are hired as teachers at other universities immediately after graduation or play leading roles in their fields, both in and outside the country.
