Mental and physical health management is important for living a full student life.
If you have any concerns about your health, please seek advice from the nurse’s office, teaching staff or other staff members.
The Nurse’s office is not only a place for communicating health-related information, but also a place for health promotion and disease prevention as a portal for health advice. The Nurse’s office is a place to rest or receive treatment for injuries or sudden illnesses, get health advice or information on medical institutions, and obtain advice about all aspects of daily life. If the nurse’s office is unattended, please go to the Secretarial Office (Academic Affairs Office) reception, on Floor G of the Administration Building. There are also other places available for health consultations apart from the Nurse’s office.

Be sure to check notices from the Nurse’s Office regularly, as they provide information on potential epidemic health problems.
Regular health check-ups and follow-up advice
In accordance with the School Health and Safety Act, regular health check-ups are conducted once a year. All students must be checked, and study may not be approved if students do not undergo a regular health check-up. 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 posted on the noticeboard will advise you when to go to the Nurse’s office to collect the results individually. Students will be notified personally as necessary for re-testing, detailed testing and lifestyle advice following the check-up results.
Testing and follow-up advice relating to practicums
New students should undergo antibody titer tests for measles, rubella, mumps and chickenpox prior to university admission. At the regular health check-up after admission, hepatitis virus testing is conducted. Students susceptible to measles must be vaccinated at a medical institution and submit the confirmation report. In addition, those who test positive to the hepatitis virus are recommended to undergo more detailed testing. Other testing for infections may be conducted prior to practicums as necessary.
Prevention measures for disease onset – Immunization is recommended
Daily lifestyle management is important so that you don’t catch infections that can be present regardless of the season. Prevention is assisted by regular and balanced meals, sufficient sleep and making it a habit to wash hands and gargle after going out. In particular it is important to actively seek immunization for measles and influenza, as immunization can help prevent onset or prevent serious disease episodes.
