It is a great honour for Fujita Health University to host the THE Asia Universities Summit for two years in a row, virtually in 2021 and in-person in 2022.
Since the university was founded, our philosophy has been “Our creativity for the people”, which means we encourage the creativity of everyone. We continue to advance clinical practice, develop human resources to contribute to society, and carry out research to make the world a better place.
Our academic programmes and research facilities correspond to the needs and challenges of society in the fields of medicine, healthcare and translational research. We also collaborate with the world’s leading academic institutions and industries to advance medicine and medical technology.
By hosting the THE Asia Universities Summit 2022, we hope to create new encounters with leaders in different fields across education, research and medicine. I hope that it will bring innovation not only to Fujita Health University but also to higher educational institutions throughout Asia. I am truly delighted to meet our friends and to get to know all our delegates.

About Fujita Health University
Fujita Health University is located in the southern part of Nagoya, the fourth-largest city in Japan. It is a medical university that seeks to educate “good health care providers” with a focus on team medical care. Since its foundation, its philosophy has been “Our creativity for the people”. The university has about 3,000 students including 2,640 undergraduate students, 317 graduate students and 37 technical college students, and more than 30,000 have graduated so far. Currently, the university offers eight undergraduate degrees, two master’s degrees and two doctoral degree programmes.
With excellent faculties, start-of-the-art facilities and four educational hospitals where training and internship opportunities are available, the university educates medical personnel in a range of specialisations including doctors, clinical technologists, nurses, public health nurses, radiological technologists, physiotherapists, occupational therapists, clinical engineers and health information managers.
At Fujita Health University Hospital, whose motto is “patient-centred medical care”, students can acquire qualifications essential for healthcare providers who can see things from the patient’s standpoint and remain close to the patients in spirit.
Furthermore, the university aims to develop unique medical science and clinical research centred on the Institute for Comprehensive Medical Science, as we believe that high-quality medical research provides the basis for high-quality medical education. It is believed that there is no other private medical university in the nation with so many full-time researchers working on advanced research.
With the goal of being recognised as one of the top universities in Japan, we are not only pushing forward in education, research and clinical practice, but also contributing to local society and showing a commitment to the international community.
