Medical examinations

To help make students aware of the state of their health, every April, all students are offered a medical examination. Be sure to take advantage of these medical examinations.
Times and information regarding these medical examinations are posted on the notice boards of the Health Science Center and at each faculty, as well as on the website of the Center for International Affairs.
*Medical examinations for international students
In view of the fact that a large number of students begin their studies in October, so the medical examination for international students will be held in October.
If you enroll in Tottori University in April, please get the medical check up in April.
If you enroll in Tottori University in October, please get the medical check up in October.


(2) Ad hoc medical examinations
Detailed medical examinations are provided as necessary. For example, before university club sports events and training camps, in order to minimize the risk of accidents and illnesses due to prevailing health issues.
However, unless you receive regular medical examinations, you cannot receive the ad hoc examinations.

(3) Issuance of health certificates
The Health Science Center issues certificates of health necessary for purposes such as employment, admission to further education, scholarship applications, and participation in athletic events.
However, health certificates can only be issued to students who have received regular medical examinations.
