Message from the Head of the Department of Health and Nutrition

Aiming to cultivate human resources with expertise and resourcefulness under the attentive educational environment

Madoka Kumai
Prof. Madoka Kumai

Today, managerial dieticians are working as specialists in food and nutrition in various places. Their work covers a wide range of complex problems, such as maintenance and management of food, health, and nutrition, as well as in the prevention and treatment of diseases. In these circumstances, managerial dieticians are required to acquire advanced expertise and techniques to find problems and work toward solving them. Also, they are required to keep learning for the entire careers in order to cope with the rapid progress of science and changes in society. In our department, we provide a great curriculum in which the students can acquire nutrition based on medical science through lectures by the faculty staff comprising doctors and managerial dieticians and practices on site. Thus, we support the acquisition of managerial dietician certificate.

Since managerial dieticians work in cooperation with colleagues and other professions, they need to be cooperative and have good communication skills. In addition to the acquisition of knowledge and techniques, we aim to produce human resources who are required by the society—those who understand other people’s feelings with great humanity by training them in our attentive educational environment where managerial dieticians foster young managerial dieticians-to-be under the basic philosophy of the university, “Respect for Human Beings.”

Purpose of Educational Research

The Department of Health and Nutrition produces nutritionists and national registered dietitian capable of practicing in the field of health preservation/management who are equipped with specialized knowledge and skills in health and nutrition.

Nutrition based medicine. That's the basic principle of our Department. We've developed a program that illuminates the links between medicine and nutrition where students gain knowledge at the same time as they develop practical skills. The result is a Department that is training professionals who can capitalize on their knowledge of nutrition for the benefit of people everywhere.
