Health management

Mental and physical health management is important for living a rich student life.
If you have any concerns about your health, please seek advice from the nurse’s office, teaching staff, or other staff members.

Nurse’s Office

The nurse’s office is not only a place for communicating health-related information, but also a source of health advice, to help promote good health and prevent diseases. The nurse’s office is a place to rest or receive treatment after injuries or sudden illnesses, get health advice or information on medical institutions, and obtain advice about all aspects of daily life. If no one is at the nurse’s office, go to the Secretarial Office (Academic Affairs Office) reception desk, on the first floor of the Administration Building. There are also other places available for health consultations, apart from the nurse’s office.

Nurse’s Office (Administration Building 2F)

Monday to Friday (except national holidays) 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
Phone: (076)281-8302 (Academic Affairs Office, University Secretarial Office)

Be sure to check notices from the nurse’s office regularly, as they provide information on topics like avoiding diseases that are currently going around.

Regular Health Check-Ups and Follow-Up Advice

In accordance with the School Health and Safety Act, regular health check-ups are held once each year. All students must be checked, and study may not be approved if students do not undergo regular health check-ups. If you cannot undergo it on the specified day, you must have a health check-up at a medical institution at your own expense. Notices will be posted on the noticeboard to tell students when to go to the nurse’s office to collect their individual results. Students will be notified personally as necessary for re-testing, in-depth follow-up testing, and lifestyle advice following the check-up results.

Testing and Follow-Up Advice Relating to Practicums

New students are expected to undergo antibody titer tests for measles, rubella, mumps, and chickenpox prior to university admission. At the regular health check-ups after admission, students are tested for viral hepatitis. Students susceptible to measles must be vaccinated at a medical institution and submit the confirmation report. In addition, those who test positive for the hepatitis virus are recommended to undergo in-depth follow-up testing. Other testing for infections may be conducted prior to practicums as necessary.

These preventative measures include regular balanced meals, sufficient sleep, and making a habit of washing your hands and gargling after going out. In particular, it is important to actively seek vaccinations for measles and influenza, as vaccines can help prevent particularly serious cases of these disease, or even prevent onset entirely.
