At the School of Human Health Science, we adopt a system where by the students start taking some of their specialized subjects immediately after their entrance, an early clinical exposure system, problem-solving classes, and integrated multi-departmental classes provided for students of different departments to take together.
In the 4-year term of enrollment, the students are required to take common subjects, basic specialized subjects, and specialized subjects. The students of all departments mainly take common subjects during their first two years to receive a broad education. For details about taking the common subjects, see “2-3. How to apply for courses in the semester system” and the course guidance supplied at the time of entering the school, so as to make sure that you have gained sufficient required credits by the time of graduation.
The students are required to have completed the basic specialized subjects along with common subjects by the 4th semester. From the 3rd semester, the students start taking substantial amount of specialized subjects of each department. As the year advances, the students experience clinical practice at hospitals and graduation research in their 4th year.
Note that there is a checkpoint before starting the clinical practice. Those who have failed to gain the specified credits cannot participate in the clinical practice. The required credits, recommended subjects, and specialized subjects vary between different departments.
Make sure to learn thoroughly about the requirements concerning common subjects, basic specialized subjects, and specialized subjects for taking and completing each course and for graduation.
