Department of Clinical Pharmacy

Point 1
Emphasis on human education based on Christianity

Today as the situations surrounding medical practice undergo drastic change, pharmacists are expected to serve as members of medical teams and as health management specialists supporting local residents. In response to the demands of society, our department aims to nurture pharmacists who are equipped with both specialized knowledge and compassionate understanding of patients' suffering. Through human education based on Christianity—one of our core educational principles—we turn out medical professionals of well-rounded character with high ethical standards and the ability to work in advanced medical care.

Point 2
Nurturing talented medical professionals through liberal arts education

We offer practical training in an environment closely resembling the medical front, with a mock pharmacy and mock sickroom in the laboratory building. After students are placed in their respective laboratories they engage in a wide range of cutting-edge research—everything from basic to clinical pharmacy. In line with the principle "a first-rate pharmacist must be a first-rate researcher," students acquire advanced expertise, techniques, and research skills as medical professionals. In addition to pharmacists, we also nurture people with the skills to work in drug development. Through our liberal arts education, we also provide students with the general knowledge they will need as medical professionals. The environment of a liberal arts college gives students opportunities to gain broad knowledge and communication skills through interaction with students and teaching staff of other faculties as well as opportunities to develop themselves as medical professionals of well-rounded character.

Point 3
Nurturing medical professionals who can work globally based on
the principle of internationalism

In response to the increasing globalization of medical practice and drug development, we are also working to nurture medical professionals who can work internationally with updated knowledge of the latest pharmaceutical research topics around the world. We offer rich language education based on internationalism, another of our core educational principles. Courses such as Pharmaceutical English inculcate the ability to understand pharmaceutical texts in English as well as to express oneself and communicate ideas in English. Students also have opportunities to improve their skills as clinical pharmacists through practical training at our top-notch partner institution, the College of Pharmacy of the University of Michigan.

Preparation for the national examination and other meticulous support to individual students

We help students prepare for the National Examination for Pharmacists by offering a comprehensive preparatory course. The aim of the course is for students not only to pass the National Examination but also to develop firm basic skills, applications, and problem-solving skills they will need over the long haul in professional pharmaceutical careers. We also have an advisor system to support students in all aspects of student life. All full-time faculty members of the Faculty of Pharmaceutical Sciences serve as student advisors, each one looking after five to six students in each year of the program. Advisors are committed to listening to any concerns that students may have regarding their studies and offering them full support to relieve those concerns.
