Three policies

Admissions policy

As a graduate school dedicated to advanced, interdisciplinary education and research in a broad range of fields related to nursing, medicine and sports, we accept students from a wide variety of backgrounds, including both medical and non-medical studies, and both new graduates and returning students.

Admissions takes a multifaceted approach that examines the applicant's desire to study and research, abilities and aptitude, not just the results of academic testing.

Curriculum policy

The Graduate School of Health Management has three Courses of nursing, health care management and sports management, and its educational system encourages these Courses to interact in a flexible manner, organically influencing each other and developing new ties that lead to new areas of academic inquiry. Below is an outline of our curriculum policies.

  • Emphasis on interdisciplinary education:
    We accept students from a wide range of backgrounds and specialties, and therefore provide opportunities to acquire basic knowledge in fields where the student may be lacking as part of the preparation for professional education and research. For example, students with medical backgrounds have the opportunity to take courses in social science, and students with non-medical backgrounds have the opportunity to study basic medicine. We also emphasize interactions between the three focuses in its education and research, and encourage students to take subjects in other Courses rather than only studying their chosen specialty.
  • Linkage between research and practice:
    We provide systematic instruction in the areas of nursing, medicine and sports, not just practical education, and the framework encourages students to understand both practice and theory.
  • Emphasis on empirical research:
    The areas of nursing, medicine and sports require both clinical rationality and business rationality. The curriculum emphasizes analytical approaches that provide the empirical evidence required for rational decision-making rather than relying only on individual experience.

Diploma policy

Diplomas in the master course are awarded upon review of a master's thesis or a thematic research paper, and the results of a final examination.

The doctor course provides necessary guidance, advice, and progress reviews in interim juries each year, and awards the degree of PhD upon review of a doctoral dissertation and other relevant testing.
