Fukushima Global Medical Science Center¡Êward A¡Ë¡¿Building Plan

The Great East Japan Earthquake in March 2011 followed by tsunami and the nuclear power plant accident was one of the worst complex disasters ever. Under these circumstances, the shortage of the medical professionals who were able to engage in health care risk management from the time of crisis to recovery phase of disaster has become apparent. Therefore, we, Nagasaki University and Fukushima Medical University, developed the new educational course collectively, and now, the establishment of ¡ÈGraduate School of Disaster & Radiation Medical Sciences¡É is underway at both Universities. The new Master Course will be opened in April 2016, and there will be two courses as introduced below.

Course Medical Science Course Nursing Course
It aims to foster the professionals who are able to engage in various disaster responses based on the expert knowledge. These include medical responses to radiation disaster, disaster readiness plan, medical activities and mental health care at evacuation center or temporary housing complex, and crisis/risk Communication. It aims to foster nurses, public health nurses, and midwives who are able to engage in not only clinical radiology nursing but also nursing activities for radiation disaster medicine from the incipient phase to recovery phase of radiation disaster, based on the specialized knowledge and skills of radiation protection and radiation risk communication.
