Our policy for organizing and implementing an educational curriculum (Curriculum policy)

Doctor’s Course

We have devised a unified, systematic and stepwise curriculum consisting of the following two types of subjects:

  • Integrative subjects: targeting specialties at the level of a doctor’s course in Interdisciplinary Science and Engineering in Health Systems
  • Specialized subjects: for deepening knowledge and thoughts in various fields of specialization that constitute Interdisciplinary Science and Engineering in Health Systems to help students reach the level required for the doctor’s course

Our goal is to accomplish the following points in accordance with “the cycle of four types of activity*” adopted by the Graduate School for human resource cultivation:

  • In this cycle, students should be able to further enhance individual knowledge and capacities in their respective fields of specialization.
  • Students should be able to face up directly to actual healthcare-related settings.
  • Students should be able to sharpen their intellect in both the natural sciences, and humanities and social sciences.
  • Students should be able to improve their comprehensive capacities to coordinate multiple activities in the cycle of human resource cultivation.

*The cycle of four types of activity:

  • 1) Targeting nature and society (actual settings),
  • 2) Addressing them through academic, observational and analytic activities,
  • 3) Coming up with ideas to create artifacts and devise new systems based on findings, in other words, engaging in structural academic activities
  • 4) Putting the resulting ideas into practice and engaging in appropriate behavioral activities And then returning to:
  • 1) Targeting nature and society (actual settings) (putting the result into practice in society)

Master’s Course

We devised a unified, systematic and stepwise curriculum consisting of the following two types of subjects:

  • Integrative subjects: targeting specialties at a master’s course level in Interdisciplinary Science and Engineering in Health Systems
  • Specialized subjects: for deepening knowledge and thoughts in various fields of specialization that constitute Interdisciplinary Science and Engineering in Health Systems to help students reach the level required for the master’s course

The goal is to cultivate human resources in accordance with “the cycle of four types of activity”*
