Faculty of Health Sciences
Aiming for the creation of a vigorous longevity society by cultivating rich human nature.
In order to develop medical professionals with up-to-date knowledge and high-level skills, the Faculty of Health Sciences focuses on practice-oriented training. Its curricula have certain advantages over those of medical colleges, such as lectures with problem-oriented content being given by special teaching staff. Furthermore, the Faculty of Health Sciences offers curricula for solving problems faced in the metropolitan area of Tokyo. These courses include home health care study, elderly nursing science, programs of disaster insurance and nursing activities in mega-cities, and programs suitable to each field of medical rehabilitation in an aged society. Another feature of the Faculty of Health Sciences is research education that has close links with research institutes in the Tokyo metropolitan area (e.g. research cooperation with the metropolitan hospitals).
