Five core abilities of healthcare professionals

Tokyo Healthcare University aims to turn out practically skilled professionals capable of performing well on healthcare teams working in clinical settings. This certainly demands that they develop the technical abilities needed for clinical activities, but also demands an education that promotes self-reflection and the development of good character. We actively incorporate group work into our academic classes and practicums so that students learn to collaborate effectively with others and cultivate the ability to look deeply into and resolve the many social challenges we face from a broad perspective powered by fresh insights.

Collaboration skills

Graduates learn to collaborate effectively with people of different specialties and backgrounds while developing leadership and management skills.

Communication skills
(speaking and listening)

Graduates learn to accept differing points of view, think for themselves, and express their ideas as they continually seek out the best solutions.


Graduates establish fundamental knowledge in every area necessary for effective on-site healthcare with a keen awareness of the responsibilities they carry as professionals in their chosen fields.

Adaptability (creative intelligence)

No two clinical cases are alike, so graduates learn to carefully assess each situation as it comes, think it through, and take constructive action.

Thirst for knowledge

Clinical settings are constantly changing and evolving. Graduates become lifelong learners, eager to continue acquiring new skills after graduation and beyond.
