Division of Community Medicine and Medical Network (Profs. Eisei Gu, Hiromu Kutsumi, Tetsuo Ajiki)
Our themes are actual experiences of community medicine as a fieldwork and investigation of the essential role of medical doctor. In the background of collapse of many community hospitals in Japan, we are studying regeneration of community medical area by actual medical examination and treatment. We hope participation of young clinical investigators in our action.
Our current projects are as follows;
1. Practice and improvement of clinical medical and educational system on community medicine,
2. Examination of the best method of establishment of community medical area and effective application of medical source,
3. Examination of effective cooperation between university (academic) hospital and community hospital.
