Overview and Features of the Educational Programs
   To advance education and research activities in the graduate school, the school organizational structure has been enhanced and centered on graduate school education and researches.
  1. To nurture highly professional experts with leadership through advanced education programs
    1. Education programs for advanced healthcare leadership specialists
         Nagoya University Graduate School of Medicine started the training programs of Certified Nurse Specialist (CNS) in Cancer Nursing in 2006 and in Child Health Nursing in 2010. Under the Oncology Professional Training Plan advocated by the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology in 2007, oncology radiotherapy technologists and medical physicists training programs have also been launched
         In addition, the common educational curriculum has been systematically remade and enhanced to be structured and interdisciplinary ones based on current health sciences. ”Basic Medical Science Practical Training Course” was introduced in 2010 to provide practical training for basic research methods and skills.
    2. Interdisciplinary education programs from different majors and/or fields of study
         Through the Total Health Planner (THP) Training Course (selected for the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology’s Support Program for Improving Graduate School Education in 2007), our Graduate School fosters comprehensive interdisciplinary specialists with a view to promoting team-based healthcare through collaboration across different specialties.
    3. Fostering research-minded professionals
         In combination with promotion of research activities, the objective of our education programs is to foster research-minded professionals to solve current health problems. Research-minded professionals will play central roles to take on the challenge in solving problems from the perspective of research and create a new healthcare system for the 21st century.
    4. International education programs
         To enhance international educational programs responding to the rapidly expanding globalization, our Graduate School launched a graduate-level academic research exchange program with Korea’s Yonsei University in 2010. In 2013, Nagoya University also launched the Interdisciplinary Graduate Program, "Women Leaders Program to Promote Well-being in Asia," run by four graduate schools--Bioagricultural Sciences, International Development, Education and Human Development, and Medical Sciences (including Health Sciences). Through these programs, our Graduate School plans to expand its international exchange program and foster professionals with international perspectives.
    5. Education and research through collaboration with Nagoya University Hospital
         In 2010, Nagoya University Graduate School of Medicine participated in the “Nurse Human Resource Development Program” in cooperation with Nagoya University Hospital’s Nursing Department (supported by the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology). This collaboration will produce better collaborative relationship between the Nursing Department of Nagoya University Hospital and Department of Nursing, the Graduate School of Medicine, resulting in providing better access by the nurses in the Hospital to the Graduate School of Medicine, Department of Nursing and opportunities to advance careers, and also expanding education and research in tandem with clinical practices.
