The importance of medical care has been widely recognized in the spread of infections caused by the new coronavirus. The Department of Health Sciences, Faculty of Medicine, Okayama University, is located on the Shikata Campus centered in a university hospital and is divided into offering three majors: nursing, radiation technology science, and examination technology science. We aim to develop human resources that can play an active role in responding to medical welfare and digital transformation (DX) in an aging society.

Okayama University is a comprehensive university with 10 faculties. Through club activities, you can expand your circle of interaction with students from other faculties and other relevant people, and develop the humanity required to become a medical staff member. In addition, clinical training is conducted on the Okayama University Hospital campus, where you can lay the foundation for practicing team medical care with advanced expertise and skills. At the Shikata Campus, the most advanced medical care in Japan is provided by Okayama University Hospital, and you will be immersed into the front line of medical care.

Furthermore, the Department of Health is also focusing on overseas exchanges, aiming to develop human resources so that students can travel via exchanges to work in other parts of the world in the future. Please acquire the spirit of taking on new challenges during your student life at Okayama University.
