Business education

We provide lecture and training with simulator for cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) in accordance with the guideline to medical students before bed-side learning. On bed-side learning of medical students, we provide various opportunities to experience cardiopulmonary arrest (CPA)/CPR, multiple trauma, acute abdomen, cardiovascular diseases, poisoning, burns and other emergency situations, and also explain the diagnosis and the treatment of those diseases. We also teach them how to make the slides and the way of presentation gazing presentation in medical meeting.
Intern doctors can experience many emergency cases from slight illness including common diseases to severe condition under the staff who attached the standard of emergency medical examination such as ACLS, ICLS, and JATEC. Intern doctors can understand not only the medical side including the procedure of medical examination and the circumstances from differential diagnosis to confirmed diagnosis but also the surgical side such as the wound management (disposal, hemostasis and suture) and drain insertion and its management. Moreover, we also guide scientific field such as presentation in medical meeting and writing medical papers.

Clinical Activities

We cooperate with the Department of General Medicine, and examine out-patients as The Emergency and General Medical Center from 2009. Our center is open for 24 hours. We deal with diverse patients from walk-in patients to critical ill patients such as cardiopulmonary arrest, severe sepsis and multiple trauma.
We are also physicians-in-charge and treat in hospital for patients with post-cardiopulmonary resuscitation, multiple trauma, sepsis, poisonings, and other emergency diseases. Especially, critical ill cases are moved to Intensive Care Unit, and treat with specialists of intensive care medicine (intensivists).
Therefore, our institute is a suitable for training not only of emergency physician but also of general physician and intensivists.

Citizenship Activities

・We manage the “Gunma Emergency Care Conference” which is an NPO.
・Five doctors (all five doctors belong to Emergency and General Medical Center, Gunma University hospital), 5 nurses and 4 officers in our hospital are registered as members of DMAT (Disaster Medical Assistance Team) which is under the jurisdiction of the Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare. They are working as a Gunma DMAT party when disaster and/or the huge accident occur. Our DMAT members worked in The Tohoku-Pacific Ocean Earthquake occurred on March 11, 2011.
・Member of Medical control conference: Gunma Prefecture and Maebashi.
・We guide and lecture as a instructor in various course such as JATEC, JPTEC, AHA-BLS and ACLS, and ICLS. In addition, we guide BLS to citizen, and lecture various emergency diseases and procedures in a paramedic’s hospital training.
those activities, we are making efforts to enlighten the importance of primary care, emergency care and disaster medicine. In addition, we are contributing to cooperation with various occupational categories including not only doctors but also other medical stuffs and paramedics.
