Arriving at the hospital

Every morning, I arrive at the hospital in good time to get ready for my duties. Prior to working with outpatients I assist with patients in the wards including at doctor’s rounds. I also have outside work in addition to the patient care in the university hospital.

At the Hokkaido University Hospital Outpatients Building

I work with outpatient care for collagen diseases in the Department of Medicine II and examine about 30 patients a day. I try to provide the care considering myself to be in the place of the patient, through sufficient communication.

Lunch/Break

After finishing the morning duty, there is the lunch break. I usually have lunch at a restaurant in the hospital or at a school cafeteria. My favorites for lunch are ramen and meals served in a bowl, and they always taste great. There are also many other shops, such as convenience stores, ATMs, and cafes in the hospital.

English Seminar

We have an English seminar every other Monday, where all the graduate students are allowed to participate, forming small groups with the lecturers of our department. As we have opportunities to participate in international conferences, this seminar is very helpful. Today students made presentations of patient cases in English and we had an active question and answer session.

At the Experimental Lab

Currently, I am engaged in research into the anti-phospholipid antibody syndrome advised by the senior doctors in the lab. Although it takes time to obtain results, I feel the research really interesting when I see the study progressing little by little.

Ward group conference

Every Monday we have a ward conference, where treatment strategies are decided through discussion. The research conference is held on every Thursday, where we learn skills for reading and writing papers, and making presentations from enthusiastic instructors.

After the completion of the doctoral program, we have many career options such as study abroad and employment in community healthcare services. I wish to choose a career that is suitable for me.
