Logo of the School of Human Health Sciences
This original logo has been used since the time of the College of Medical Technology, Kyoto University (July 1981).
The tulip tree figure symbolizes beauty (love and service), its thick trunk symbolizes powerfulness (healthy mind and body), and its short-coat-like leaves symbolize activeness.
The two tulip leaves shown as yin and yang also implies the importance of harmony and cooperation.
(This logo was designed by the late Prof. Yoshizo Sakaguchi.)

Characteristics of the curriculum
|Health science education||Good health refers not merely to a medical condition without diseases, but also to a physically, mentally, socially, and spiritually good condition. At the School of Human Health Sciences, we take up “conducting science on health” as our core educational theme and form the basis of “health science” from the freshman years through “Introduction to Human Health Sciences”. We foster specialists who can practice “health science” in the fields of health service, health care, and welfare by providing studies on health promotion over 4 years.|
|Multidisciplinary team care education||The application of multidisciplinary team care should not be limited to highly advanced medical care, such as transplantation and regenerative medicine, or rehabilitation, but also to much wider fields, and there is a high demand for medical specialists, who can actively participate in multidisciplinary team care with an effective leadership. At the School of Human Health Sciences, we teach shared principles and methodologies required for patient-centered care in order to foster medical specialists, who can provide highly advanced medical care based on such knowledge and work effectively in the globalized environment.|
|Cross-departmental education||At the School of Human Health Sciences, we actively provide “cross-departmental education” whereby students of multiple departments take the same subjects. Through discussions from different viewpoints on health- and healthcare-related issues and the expected roles of the medical staff, we aim to foster medical specialists, who can understand the viewpoints of other professions.|
