Graduate School of Health Sciences
The Graduate School of Health Sciences Master program was established in April 2001 and strives to nurture professionals of advanced healthcare who have the skills needed to research technologies related to nursing, physical therapy, occupational therapy, and radiological sciences, and to respond to the demands of an aging society with a declining birthrate.
In the major courses, specialist education builds upon the knowledge gained during the undergraduate courses, to turn students into advanced professionals of nursing, physical therapy, occupational therapy, and radiological sciences. Students are also taught the basic skills required of teachers and researchers.
The Graduate School of Health Sciences PhD program was started in 2010 with the purpose of producing specialists who have the advanced skills for client-centered practice attained through multidisciplinary approaches and research which underpins their scientific validity.
The program also cultivates students who have highly advanced knowledge and skills in health sciences able to play an active role internationally as researchers and/or administrators of medical or welfare facilities.
