Division of Pediatric Emergency and Transport Services
We provide both tertiary- and quaternary-level emergency services to the pediatric population of Tokyo and its environs. We also offer primary- and secondary-level services to our local population. Approximately 30,000 children require emergency care each year, with almost 4,000 of those children admitted from the Emergency Department to inpatient care. We deal with a wide spectrum of illnesses and traumas, and our division is involved in various activities relevant to pediatric emergency medicine. We offer a special fellowship training program in emergency medicine, and carry out clinical research in various areas to improve practices in pediatric emergency medicine.
Our division is comprised of seven staff physicians and four fellows. All services, including emergency consultation of patients and the interfacility transport of severely ill children, are available 24 hours a day.
