  This course is intended for doctors, dentists, pharmacists, sanitary technicians, public health nurses, and other healthcare professionals, who have studied medicine, dentistry, pharmacy, engineering, science, nursing, health hygiene, and other similar fields, at university and who aim to become specialists in occupational health. On this course, students are taught how to prevent adverse health effects on workers in the workplace, to support the continuation of employment of workers with chronic illnesses, and to promote the health of workers and a comfortable working environment. This course is also open to practitioners, researchers, and educators in the field of occupational health.
  In the Master's course, after learning about the fundamental principles underlying the field of occupation health, students work on various issues related to the improvement of workplaces, work operations, and a range of healthcare issues by applying the methodologies of medicine, engineering and nursing. Throughout the course students develop an in-depth professional knowledge, and learn the practical skills necessary to explore issues in the field of occupational health and become occupational health professionals.
  In the Doctoral Course, we further develop the scientific knowledge and skills acquired in our Master's Course and the Master's Courses of other universities. The course cultivates researchers and educators with advanced abilities and a rich academic knowledge who can independently identify the nature of occupational health-related problems, and develop the methods necessary for solving them.
