Radiation Emergency Medicine (REM) Program (Master’s level)
At the Graduate School of Health Sciences, we established a Master’s level REM program in 2008 in order to develop human resources of medical specialists involved in REM. This program includes the handling of irradiated and/or contaminated patients, and the knowledge and skills of contamination countermeasures and decontamination, dosimetry, and special clinical examinations.
Aims of the program
- To develop individuals who can exhibit leadership skills and provide appropriate medical support responses during extreme emergencies such as large-scale radiation disasters.
- To develop individuals who can promote education and research in terms of knowledge related to radiation and crisis-management system in REM, and can facilitate the coordination between multiple specialists.
- Acquisition of specialized knowledge and skills related to REM.
- Cultivation of leadership required for the practice of REM.
- Acquisition of educational and research abilities related to REM.
