Primary Care & Emergency Medicine



Shigeru Ohtsuru, M.D., Ph.D. Professor

Our department is still young, opened in 2006. Kyoto Univ. Hospital has been designated as a base hospital for natural and nuclear disasters. The advanced acute care unit opened in 2019, with the number of emergency transports exceeding 6,000 units per year. As an epicenter of advanced acute care, our staffs with various subspecialties have gathered and are working together as ONE-TEAM. Japan is facing a super-aging society, various disasters, and emerging infectious diseases. We want to develop a new Emergency Department that is distinctive and representative of Kyoto University.
