Health Services for Foreigners in Tsukuba

Date: July 18, 2017

Venue: Building 8A Rm. 108, Master's Programs in Humanities and Social
Sciences A Building
Organized by Department of Student Affairs, Division of Student Exchange

In cooperation with University Health Center
Language: English

International students in Tsukuba often do not pay much attention to health
or medical problems. But if they (or a family member) happen to fall ill or
get injured in an accident, they find themselves having to navigate an
unfamiliar health system from scratch in order to seek medical assistance.
The University of Tsukuba Health Center provides some basic health
services, emergency first aid and various health consultations for
students. However, there have been cases among our students who were not
aware of their illness and fell into a critical condition from a lack of
understanding of these support systems. Through this special seminar for
international students and their families, representatives from
health-related offices of Tsukuba City Hall and from the University Health
Center will explain what health and medical services Tsukuba City provides
to its residents and how foreigners can avail of them.
