Department of Physiotherapy

We educate physical therapists who will continue to upgrade their skills to provide the best rehabilitation.

Department of Physiotherapy

We aim to develop physical therapists who work to improve disabled people’s quality of life by giving rehabilitation to them for the purpose of recovering their daily mobility. The more an age society is getting, the more elderly people need rehabilitations for recovering their disorders. The change of social environment is getting remarkable and its occurring problems are coming up to the surface. Therefore severity and duplication of many diseases and disorders is getting so big .In our physical therapy department, we educate our students how to be aware of patients’ problems, how to search the problems, how to think of anything deeply and how to solve the problems by themselves.
The philosophy in this department is follows: To learn the way of leaning, which means students not only get a variety of knowledge including medicine but also much ability of thinking, working and solving independently through daily practical learning.

Curriculum

The recent improvement of medicine and advanced and differentiated specialization is remarkable.
The problems of a rising number of handicapped people and increasingly serious and multiple diseases due to an aging society are being experienced.
Based on these social circumstances, we established the first Department of Physiotherapy in a four-year private college in the Chubu district in April 2002 and began to educate physical therapists to work for physiotherapy education, research and clinical activities
Students acquire the ability to think and solve problems flexibly and logically through a highly dense curriculum.
In addition, we not only teach required knowledge but also educate good hearted and high quality physical therapists with an ability to make accurate judgements.
