Health Clinic

In order to make the most of your life as a student, you will need to keep healthy – both physically and mentally. At the Health Clinic, we not only provide emergency treatment for illness or injuries, but also information on maintaining your health. First year students in particular may find it difficult to adapt to their new life in an unfamiliar place and may fall ill as a result of psychological pressures. Please do not hesitate to visit the Health Clinic if you do not feel well or if you are having any health problems.

Location

The Health Clinic is located on the first floor of Building A, next to the Student Office.

Office hours

10:00 AM to 5:00 PM, Monday through Friday

Health Clinic Staff

There are three nurses on duty at the Clinic.
* Because the Clinic does not have a resident physician, they are unable to diagnose illness, prescribe medication, or provide injections.

Using the Health Clinic

Complete a reception form at the counter by providing your student ID number, name, purpose of visit, and submit it to one of the nurses on duty. It is not necessary to present your health insurance certificate, but bring it with you in case you need to go to a hospital for further consultation.

Issuing Health Certificates

If you have taken a health checkup at this University within the last year, the Health Clinic can provide you with a health certificate. Health certificates are 200 yen per copy, and must be paid for with a certificate stamp.
