Department of Medical Information Science
Educating a specialist who will lead the next generation in medical information by acquiring knowledge of medical fields and the latest information technology.
New computer systems are being utilized more and more. Electronic medical charts are gradually being applied in hospitals. Cooperation in community-based health care and utilization of mobile terminals are becoming increasingly important. Cloud computing systems are now being introduced and wearable terminals are under discussion concerning their application in medical fields. As a result medical fields are too broadly integrated to be dealt with only by a single medical specialist.
A little information processing ability in addition to their specialized medical knowledge can help a medical specialist perform a lot of work which is supported by medical technology.
Many qualifications and jobs are available in this field.
In this department we teach students according to their aptitude. Through small group education, we discern each student’s talent and aptness and determine which qualifications are appropriate. We educate them to work with confidence as a professional as soon as they graduate so they can appreciate what they have learned in this department.
