Purpose of establishment：
The School of Allied Health Sciences was found in 1993 as part of Faculty of Medicine, by remaking the College of Bio-Medical Technology. The new school consists of three courses; Nursing, Radiological Technology and Biomedical Engineering, and Laboratory Sciences.
The first students were admitted to the School in 1994.
The School of Allied Health Sciences moved from its historic location in the Toyonaka cumpus to the newer and spacious Suita campus.
The Master's Course of Health Sciences was found in the Graduate School of Medicine in 1998.
The doctoral Course of Health Science was found in the Graduate School of Medicine in 2000.
The School of Allied Health Sciences aims to nurture scientists who are able to
provide 21st Century intellectual leadership in the fields of Nursing and Medical
Technology and Science. The School of Allied Health Sciences provides 4-year
curricula in Nursing, Radiological Technology and Biomedical Engineering as well
as Laboratory Sciences for prospective Nurses, Public Health Nurses, Midwives,
Radiology Technologists and Clinical Laboratory Scientists, and trains proficient
experts in Medical Professional Jobs such as Nurses, Radiological Technologists,
and Clinical Laboratory Scientists who collaborate with Doctors and provide
increasingly sophisticated treatment appropriately and accurately as a team.
The School of Allied Health Sciences is committed to training highly competent
Research field (1)：
Nurses, Radiological Technologists and Clinical Laboratory Scientists. In this
respect, we value a dedicated research attitude. In the fields of Health Care and
Nursing we tackle such issues as anti-smoking measures and nursing for the elderly
essential to building a healthy society. Furthermore, care for patients who have
life-threatening illnesses and for patients who are terminally ill has also become the
object of extensive research. In the fields of Medical Technology and Science,
examination methods that are less demanding on the body and effective radiation
therapy with shorter exposition exposition are needed.
Promoting “Medical Care Team” has become essential to 21st century Medical
Practice. That is why the School of Allied Health Sciences devotes itself to training
Medical Technologists and Nurses who are able to work side by side with doctors.
The ageing of society over coming decades and our limited medical resources require
us to look into how to dispense safe and high quality treatments. Additionally, the
School of Allied Health Sciences pioneers “Clinical Training” in Japan giving
students an opportunity to train in wards and main hospital departments. Students
are offered a chance to partner with patients and learn about how their field of
study is involved in patient treatment. “Clinical Training” also allows students to
familiarize themselves with the role played by other experts in Medical Professional
Jobs with regards to patients.
Furthermore, the School of Allied Health Sciences aspires to train a large number of
medical specialists who can apply 21st century medical treatments, such as “Gene
Therapy”, “Regenerative Medicine”, and “Robotics Therapy”.
