history
Soon after the hospital was established, Dr. Takehiko Yasaki took up the post of Professor of Pediatrics. The number of medical staff gradually increased, and today, there are 16 in the First Hospital, and already about 120 alumni. In the year 2000, after Prof. Yazakifs retirement, Prof. Yoshizo Asano assumed office as Chief Professor.
In the year 2010, Prof. Tetsushi Yoshikawa has become the chair of our department of Pediatrics. Recently, high level of medications is required for treatment of each specific childhood disease. Therefore, aim of our department is activation of clinical research in the five sub-specialty groups such as allergy and immunology, cardiology, renal diseases, infectious diseases and vaccine, and neonatology.
