Center for Epidemiology and Preventive Medicine

The Center for Preventive Medicine provides complete physical examination programs by taking advantage of advanced technologies and expertise of medical care providers within the University Hospital. The Center aims to help individuals maintain and promote physical health in a comprehensive manner.

Management policy

Common diseases include lifestyle-related problems such as hypertension, heart disease, stroke, hyperlipemia, diabetes and obesity. As these diseases have re-cently increased, disease management has been changing from a therapy-oriented approach to prevention-oriented care. The importance of preventive medicine and health promotion has been recognized both socially and administratively, and people have become more and more health-oriented. In this context, “the Center for Preventive Medicine” was established in 2007 when Central Clinical Service Bldg. 2 was founded. Unlike conventional physical examinations or complete check-up facilities, the Center places an emphasis on preventive medicine and disease prevention / health promotion.

Clinical activities

In addition to basic examinations which are open to the public, our department provides these 11 options: 1) comprehensive cardiovascular examinations, 2) home blood pressure screening, 3) comprehensive cerebrovascular examinations, 4) checkup of dementia, 5) colorectal cancer screening, 6) uterine cancer screening, 7) breast cancer screening, 8) lung cancer screening, 9) tumor marker diagnosis, 10) estimation of gastric cancer risk, and 11) oral/dental examinations. While meeting the needs of examinees, we have increased the number of the optional examinations and provided higher levels of examinations.
The physicians of our department are responsible for analyzing the results of examinations and screenings, performing overall evaluations, and consultations with examinees. One of our important services is that we take approximately 30 minutes per examinee to perform comprehensive medical examinations. Formally, the examinee is notified in writing of the results within approximately three weeks after the examination. We also offer each examinee a free 20-minute consultation so that we can help him/her understand the results or decide whether or not to have further work-up. Furthermore, licensed nutritionists provide 1 hour complimentary personal nutrition counseling.
