Master's Programmes



Was established in 1978 under the enactment of the Industrial Safety and Health Act of 1972 for the securement of occupational physicians experienced in occupational health management. 


Based on the education, research and medical examinations relating to general medicine, our university promotes education and research that especially pertains to occupational medicine and occupational healthcare, and produces many excellent occupational health physicians and related healthcare professionals who are active in society. At the same time, we advance research in related fields and assume a central role in the healthcare of the local people.


 Research fields in medical and life sciences are becoming increasingly specialized and compartmentalized, and along with those changes, research environments are also changing greatly. The Shared-Use Research Center includes highly-functional and advanced scientific instrumentation and various types of technical equipment, such as an anechoic chamber and an artificial climate chamber for use in experiments in special environments.

The center, as a research facility for shared-use, is designed to be of use not only for education and research in the field of occupational and environmental health but also in increasingly diverse research.
