Major

Course of Medical Laboratory Sciences

We train clinical laboratory technicians who perform the medical examinations necessary for medical diagnoses and for understanding health conditions, but we also foster researchers and educators with the abilities necessary for research and development in medical and life sciences.
For this reason, we provide education and conduct research regarding medical knowledge on the structure and function of the human body including the mechanisms of disease occurrence, and clinical examination knowledge and technical skills necessary for analyzing disease.
In addition, students learn about cell and genetic engineering techniques and rapidly developing information processing technologies.
This results in well-rounded scientific technicians with a wide range of capabilities that can be adapted to various fields, social perspectives, and ethics.
