The Spiritual Legacy of the Foundation: ”Cultivate Your Individuality and Carve Your Own Path of Life.”
“Cultivate your individuality and carve your own path in life.”
Every child is born with a special gift that defines its character and distinguishes its individuality from others. This quality may be identified in primary and secondary education, but it is truly nourished through the opportunities provided in higher education. Daiichi University of Pharmacy assists each student to acquire expert knowledge in pharmacy with a professional spirit for preparing and dispensing medications, as well as developing communication skills for the social aspect of patient care. Extra-curricular activities also provide students the opportunity to learn about themselves in social and cultural interaction. The addition of Kampo Pharmacy, traditional Japanese medicine and culture, guides students through the spiritual legacy of nature and medicine to provide the highest level of health care to patients. It is hoped that the foundation laid here will lead the students to life-long learning and professionalism.

Students have traveled to Sweden, United States, Canada and Taiwan, and have hosted students from some of those countries. Professors regularly present their research domestically and internationally, modeling to students a well-rounded professional attitude to pharmacy practice. Faculty exchanges with partner schools in the United States, China, Taiwan, and Belgium provide the academic faculty with expanded global views and insights and the opportunity to collaborate with international researchers. These global partnerships continue to form and result in expanded world views and professional practice, boosting the educational level of the university.
