The members of the Division of Acute and Critical Care Medicine play an active role in acute medicine such as emergency medicine, critical care medicine, and disaster medicine. Our main purposes are to nurture excellent physicians with high clinical ability as well as humanity and research mind.


  1. Body responses to various insults
    - pathophysiology and their control -
  2. Multiple organ dysfunction syndrome
    - pathophysiology and treatment -
  3. Critical care medicine
  4. Cardiopulmonary cerebral resuscitation
  5. Toxicology
  6. Traumatology
  7. Disaster medicine
  8. Medical, transportation, and information system for acute medicine


Faculty members in this division give classes of emergency medicine, critical care medicine, disaster medicine, toxicology, and traumatology for medical students. We also take part in the courses for graduate students. All of these classes and courses are given in Japanese. We accept applications from all young investigators who want to take master (2 years) or doctoral (4 years) courses in our division.

International Activities

  1. Publishing scientific researches to English journals.
  2. Attending international meetings and congresses.
Immunofluorescence of PAR-2
Immunofluorescence of PAR-2. PAR-2 expression is mainly located in pulmonary alveoli, different sized-blood vessels and rarely in bronchus.
