For the capacity building in the field of radiation health science

Since 2010, Nagasaki University has established “Radiation Nursing course” in Health Science Course and continued the efforts for the capacity building in the field of radiation health sciences. In this joint master course, we continue the efforts of the capacity building of radiation specialized nurses and public health nurses, and accept foreign students especially from Asian countries, so that they will become leaders in this field.
Education to foreign students is delivered in English, and we invite outstanding foreign lecturers who have working experiences in the international organizations. Especially, we invite Professor Jacques Lochard, vice president of the International Committee of Radiological Protection (ICRP), who delivers the lectures of “Radiation Protection” and “Risk Communication”, and takes charge of “Kawauchi Village Risk Communication Training”.

Fostering experts capable of responding to combined disaster

Work on Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station of Tokyo Electric Power Company Holdings (TEPCO) towards the decommissioning nuclear reactor will be conducted for some decades in the future in Fukushima prefecture. However, the shortage of experts in disaster and radiation medical science was recognized by the combined disaster (earthquake, tsunami, nuclear accident) due to the Great East Japan Earthquake of 2011.
Therefore, Fukushima Medical University of Medicine established two courses to develop human resources capable of responding appropriately to health damage in a combined disaster including radiation disasters, one is the medical science course aimed at fostering persons capable of commanding various disasters based on expert knowledge, and another is the health nursing course aimed at fostering nurses and public health nurses capable of performing risk communication. Fortunately, we can use the wisdom collected by Nagasaki university in the medical care and research for A-bomb survivors after the World War II.
We hope as many experts for disaster medical care will be fostered from this postgraduate course.
