We also have a large number of other affiliated medical facilities including clinical medicine research centers such as Kaken Hospital and Sanno Hospital as well as home care centers, facilities for children and adults with serious mental and physical disabilities, and so on. Medical welfare facilities affiliated with the university include a geriatric nursing facility with 200 beds, making it possible to provide broad-ranging clinical training that is compatible with the needs of community-based integrated care systems. A hospital affiliated with the School of Medicine called IUHW Narita Hospital is scheduled to open in 2020. The university will be working to deepen coordination with these facilities to further strengthen their functions as clinical training facilities for School of Medicine.

One of the university's clinical training hospitals, IUHW Mita Hospital, received accreditation in December 2015 from Joint Commission International (JCI), a globally recognized medical institution accreditation organization.

The high-caliber medical staff in each department work hard every day to provide team-based medical care with high levels of safety while also collaborating with the university to provide students with clinical training.

The university is also working to reinforce its community medical coordination with a range of different medical institutions in Chiba Prefecture including the School of Medicine of Chiba University (where I previously served) as part of efforts to continue to provide high quality medical education and clinical training to our School of Medicine students.

As part of our responsibilities as a hospital, IUHW Mita Hospital works to foster professionals who are equipped with the qualities appropriate for those seeking to become doctors. These qualities include not only advanced medical knowledge and skills but the compassionate attitude expected of medical professionals in their dealings with ailing patients. The IUHW group brims with a sense of mission about sending our students out into society and we have created cheerful and enthusiastic learning environments in which students can study in a proactive manner. We are looking forward to working with all those aiming to become ardent and devoted doctors to help them achieve their goals.
