Message from Dean

Department of Health Sciences,  Graduate School of Medical Sciences,  Kyushu University  Dean Akiko Chishaki

Kyushu University School of Medicinefs Department of Health Sciences established the Graduate School of Medical Sciences Master Course in 2007, the Doctorate Course in 2009, and the Midwifery Course in the Master program in 2015.

Kyushu Universityfs Hospital Campus is located in the historically all-embracing and progressive-minded neighborhood of Hakata and equipped with a rich educational and research environment for the medical and biomedical sciences. Here, students master a wide range of practical science, from applied research into health and medical care to advanced analyses with instructors who have gathered from numerous fields. In this resource-rich setting, we aspire to nurture leaders of researchers, educators, and medical professionals in the nursing and health sciences who possess high research abilities as well as ethics and capacity to succeed globally.

We are being exposed to unprecedented, dramatic changes as we progress further into becoming a super-aging society with a low birth rate and are faced with unpredictable social circumstances and natural phenomena. Hardy researchers, educators, and leaders, who have comprehensive skills to embrace different cultures in a borderless world where vast amounts of information are exchanged instantaneously, are being cultivated here. Abundant possibilities are hidden in the new, interdisciplinary field of health sciences, and continued research into the nursing and health sciences is indispensable to the development of health care in the future. Let us study together to strive for everyonefs health and happiness.
