Distinctive Curriculum

Athlete Support Practical Course

Aiming to become a top-notch "physical therapist"

Physiotherapists are also active in the field of sports as coaches and trainers. In this course, students will acquire basic knowledge and skills to support athletes, such as first aid and injury prevention in the field, which are rarely taught at rehabilitation training schools. In cooperation with local soccer and futsal teams, the curriculum allows students to learn practically while interacting with athletes. Students can also obtain a private trainer license (NSCA certified personal trainer) if they wish.

The department head, Professor Yoshihiko Yamamoto, participated in the 2020 Tokyo Olympic and Paralympic Games as a medical science staff member. This experience is being put to good use in our classes and athlete support practical courses at our school.

Acquire knowledge and skills in the field of sports


The field of activity of "physical therapists" also extends to the field of sports. At our school, we have teachers who are certified as JSPO athletic trainers, teachers who coach high school club activities, and teachers who accompany students to the National Athletic Meet as trainers. Our school has an environment where students can learn about rehabilitation in the field of sports on a daily basis.

Message from the Faculty

We are training clinically-ready personnel.

Head of the Department of Physical Therapy
Yoshihiko Yamamoto

A physical therapist's job is to provide rehabilitation to people who are physically and mentally injured. Their scope of activity is wide, and they are required to perform specialized activities in a variety of locations, with medical skills at the core. Our school trains students to acquire solid skills and the ability to think for themselves based on basic knowledge, and to become people who can immediately contribute in clinical situations.

"physical therapistI want to become a qualified trainer.

2nd year Physical Therapy Department student, Shimane Prefecture/Hamada High School graduate
Ishikawa Tenma

I am interested in sports-related work, and in the future I would like to become a trainer with a "physical therapist" license. "Rehabilitation College Shimane" is affiliated with local soccer and futsal teams, and one of its features is its strong connection to sports, with teachers who are certified athletic trainers. In the "Athlete Support Practical Course," I learn about taping and injury treatment while actually interacting with athletes. I would like to gradually build up what I can do now and become a "physical therapist" who is relied upon in the field.

For blank spaces

I chose a local school where I could receive intensive education over four years.

2nd year Physical Therapy Department student, Shimane Prefecture/Hamada Commercial High School graduate
Hamaguchi Miu

When I was in junior high school, I got injured during track and field and for the first time I learned about the existence of "physical therapists." It was before the competition, but thanks to rehabilitation I was able to participate in the competition safely, and I thought that I also wanted a job where I could work for people and interact with them.FourI went on to study at the local Rehabilitation College Shimane, where I could learn thoroughly in a multi-year program and reduce the burden on my parents.

Although I sometimes have trouble understanding technical terms and difficult content, I overcome these challenges by working together with my peers who are also aiming to become physical therapists. In the future, I want to become a physical therapist who can make patients smile with my communication skills, and who make them feel glad that they received rehabilitation from me. I want as many people as possible to learn about the work of a physical therapist, so please come and join our open campus.

Graduated from the Department of Physical Therapy in March 2021 (Shimane Prefecture/Meisei High School)
physical therapistKumagai Jellyfish

Because I liked sports, I became interested in becoming a physical therapist, who approaches injured people from the perspective of rehabilitation. Rehabilitation College Shimane is an environment where I can concentrate on my studies, and the teachers are very kind to each person, which was very reassuring. I am currently working in a rehabilitation ward, where I am in charge of rehabilitation to improve physical functions and daily activities in order to return home and return to society. By actually visiting patients' homes and asking about their lives, I discuss rehabilitation programs and future approaches to goals with other professionals. I feel very rewarded when patients' walking ability and daily activities improve and they express their gratitude when they are discharged from the hospital. Even after getting a job, I continue to study every day, but I think that medical professions, including physical therapists, are very attractive jobs where you can learn a lot through interactions with people.
