They have had a tough time in the school year, but they have worked hard on what they need to do and demonstrated their abilities.In order to pass the national exam, it is important to make constant efforts.We will continue to work even harder for next year. I look forward to their efforts."

 In 2003, Kio University became the first private four-year university to open a physical therapy department in the Kinki region, which was previously only available at vocational schools, national universities, and junior colleges. From the beginning, we have linked lectures with practical training/seminar subjects, creating a unique curriculum where you can learn both theory and technology.As a frontrunner in physical therapy, our faculty members who lead the industry in research achievements support the future of physical therapy. We are developing human resources who will become leaders. Approximately 4% of the more than 1000 people who have found employment thus far have found employment at hospitals, and are working in the medical field as a precursor to university-graduated physical therapists.
