OVERVIEW
Sangyo Medical School (Univeristy of Occupational and Environmental Health, Japan) is a university in Kitakyushu city, Fukuoka. 

The purpose for which the university was established 
As society becomes increasingly welfare-oriented and healthcare demands grow and diversify, there is an urgent need for training medical doctors with firm ethics and a thorough understanding of the role of medical science in society.
Furthermore, working conditions continue to change, especially in Japan with its highly advanced industrialization. Thus, major topics in welfare society include determining how actual working conditions influence workers' health, what impact environmental pollution has on local citizens, and proper measures for coping with these situations, while at the same time ensuring a high quality of working life.
In response to such social demands, our university was established for the purpose of promoting occupational and environmental health and to train excellent occupational health physicians, occupational health nurses and environmental management technologists in this field while providing education and conducting research in the general fields of medical science.

UNIVERSITY AND HOSPITALS
The University Hospital is a general medical facility where both undergraduates in medical school and post-graduate trainees have clinical education and do research by taking part in highest quality medical practice primarily oriented for our patients' benefit. Our hospital is also provided with a medical practice system fully worked out to function as an advanced treatment hospital and regional core hospital to offer advanced medical practice and training for it, as well as for functioning as a Core Hospital for AIDS Treatment, as a core hospital in case of disaster, as an emergency hospital, and as an institution for organ donation.
  What makes our hospital different from other hospitals is that we are doing research in health management of employees, occupation-induced diseases, work-related illnesses, rehabilitation, and mental health, and are providing treatment for the diseases. We are also making efforts to keep a close coordination between occupational health and community medicine.
  In our everyday activities we are trying to develop safety measures to prevent medical accidents and in-hospital infections. We are also attempting to improve the quality and efficiency of medical practice by disclosing information and introducing the clinical path system.
