What is Wuxi Taihu Academy?

Wuxi Taihu College

Our philosophy is "self-improvement" and "striving for excellence".

It is a globally oriented university, active in the development of high quality human resources, respectful of tradition, but with a global perspective, incorporating the know-how of the private sector.

Established in 2011 in Wuxi, Jiangsu Province, China, as the first private university specialising in education, the university has more than 20,000 teaching staff and students spread over 40 million square metres, offering 35 majors in seven academic disciplines: engineering, science, economics, management, literature, law and the arts, across 20 academic departments. Rehabilitation will be a new addition to this.
Introduction to the School of Nursing
Established in 2003, the School of Nursing at Taihu University of Wuxi has established a system to train nursing professionals over the past 15 years. The School of Nursing was established in 2003.

The School of Nursing is based on the principle of "Ritoku Jujin", in which the university, hospital and community work together to develop competence. In addition, the school's founding principles are "establishment of the fundamentals, emphasis on practice, and acquisition of humanistic culture", based on the organizationally designed curriculum and the guarantee of practical training. In addition to this, the School of Nursing has strengthened its development strategy of "human resources, research and culture", and has put into practice the founding spirit of "Meitei Hakugaku, Seigyo Saise". Through this practice, we aim to create a human resource development system of "specialized knowledge + practical ability + professional background", and to acquire specialized knowledge in nursing and related knowledge in the natural sciences, humanities and social sciences, and critical thinking. In addition, we are committed to cultivating highly qualified, practical and creative nurses who can play an active role in institutions related to medicine, hygiene and health, and who are equipped with an excellent vocational background to continue learning autonomously throughout their lives.

The School of Nursing currently has over 600 undergraduate students and 47 full-time lecturers. There are 7 professors, 18 associate professors, and 40 lecturers (including part-time) with doctoral and master's degrees. In order to attract qualified educators, we have invited full-time lecturers, specially appointed lecturers and part-time lecturers. In addition, approximately 100 nursing professionals from hospitals and community clinics have been invited to join the Faculty as professors, associate professors and lecturers. The aim is to strengthen the partnership between the university, hospital and community, and to develop human resources in collaboration with the hospital and the university. It is hoped that the university and the local community will develop in partnership.

In recent years, the School of Nursing has boasted a 100% graduation rate and a 100% pass rate for the National English Level 4 Examination. The pass rate for the national nursing qualification is 98%, and the employment rate is 99%. Our graduates are highly praised by their organizations and companies for their professional skills, and are widely recognized by society.

Background and purpose of the business alliance

In China, which is the world's ◼ largest country and has a population ten times that of Japan, rehabilitation is in demand. In China, where the number of elderly households is increasing more than in Japan, maintaining one's own health has become the most important concern for middle-aged and elderly people. However, the total number of rehabilitation therapists (physiotherapists, occupational therapists and speech therapists in Japan) who can provide rehabilitation services is 30,000, which is only one tenth of the total number of therapists in Japan. There is an urgent need to develop a high quality workforce.

The number of children who need psychological care, such as children with ◼ autism, is on the increase, and we will produce people who can research and provide rehabilitation to care for the next generation of young people.

◼ Currently, Japanese medical care is highly regarded in China.

REHABILITATION IN CHINA IS BASED ON WHAT IS LEARNED IN THE WEST. HOWEVER, MANY PEOPLE QUESTION WHETHER ALL THE CONTENT IS SUITABLE FOR CHINESE PEOPLE. THIS IS WHERE JAPANESE REHABILITATION COMES IN, AS IT IS THE ONLY ONE IN ASIA AND THE MOST FAMILIAR EXAMPLE OF SUCCESS. IN PARTICULAR, THE IAIR PHILOSOPHY AND APPROACH, WHICH ADVOCATES AN APPROACH THAT COMBINES WESTERN AND EASTERN MEDICINE, AS WELL AS OTHER ALTERNATIVE AND COMPLEMENTARY THERAPIES, IS BEING INCORPORATED INTO THE EDUCATION SYSTEM, INCLUDING ON-CAMPUS AND POST-GRADUATE EDUCATION, AND IS EXPECTED TO FOSTER HIGH-QUALITY REHABILITATION THERAPISTS WHO CAN TELL A STORY WITH PATIENTS. IT IS HOPED THAT THIS WILL LEAD TO THE DEVELOPMENT OF HIGH QUALITY REHABILITATION THERAPISTS WHO CAN TALK TO THEIR PATIENTS.

Benefits of the business alliance

CURRENTLY, THERE ARE NOT ENOUGH REHABILITATION THERAPISTS IN CHINA TO MEET THE NEEDS OF THE POPULATION. IN ADDITION, THE NUMBER OF PEOPLE WHO REQUIRE THIS SERVICE IS INCREASING MORE RAPIDLY THAN IN JAPAN. WE SHARE PRESIDENT WANG'S ENTHUSIASM TO CONTRIBUTE TO THE DEVELOPMENT OF CHINESE HEALTHCARE BY TRAINING THERAPISTS OF HIGH QUALITY BOTH TECHNICALLY AND PERSONALLY. WE BELIEVE THAT BY PROVIDING THE FIRST JAPANESE IAIR EDUCATION SYSTEM THAT HAS TRAINED JAPANESE THERAPISTS (PHYSIOTHERAPISTS, OCCUPATIONAL THERAPISTS AND SPEECH AND LANGUAGE THERAPISTS) OF HIGH QUALITY BOTH TECHNICALLY AND PERSONALLY, WE CAN CONTRIBUTE TO THE DEVELOPMENT OF REHABILITATION IN WUXI AND OTHER PARTS OF CHINA. WE WILL CONTRIBUTE TO THE DEVELOPMENT OF REHABILITATION IN CHINA.
